Paige, an excelling student heading into her second year at the University of Rochester, had the opportunity to shadow Jeffrey Siegel, MD in orthopedics. After experiencing a torn ACL, Paige studied ACL injuries and the significant impact those in the medical field have in making the patient feel better. From this experience, she became inspired to pursue a career in a related field, which lead her to our shadowing program with orthopedics at SMG.
“I had an absolute blast shadowing Dr. Siegel. He was incredibly nice and engaging,” said Paige. “The whole experience was very informative and I came out of it having learned a lot. Thank you for coordinating this great experience!”
