Shadowing can be a deciding factor in choosing a career in surgery, or helping you get into medical school.
Our goal is to provide students interested in surgery with the opportunity to learn more about various disciplines and better understand the roles of the health care team.
The Department of Surgery at VCU consists of ten divisions that each honor a commitment to medical education and a dedication to surgery research. Students interested in shadowing will have a unique opportunity to observe a typical work day of attending physicians and gain a broader perspective of the work environment and responsibilities you may encounter in the medical profession.
If you are interested in shadowing, please email Kathleen Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application and include the following information:
