Pre-Med Shadowing

Pre-med shadowing experiences are for U.S. undergraduate students. Although these experiences are strictly shadowing, like a college internship, they provide trainees with real-world experience. Trainees have the potential to earn letters of evaluation to help them stand out on med school applications.
