Physician Shadowing/Observation Experience
Pre-clerkship physician shadowing experiences are intended for MSUCOM MS1 and MS2 students who are interested in shadowing a clinical physician. Shadow experiences are not enrollable courses, and thus will not include credit or a grade, and will not appear on the student’s transcript.
Eligibility for Shadow Participation includes:
- Full Time enrollment in Pre-Clerkship Core Curriculum.
- Completion of application with approvals.
- All college/university requirements of immunization & compliances completed.
- Being in academic good standing.
Students can access the Physician Shadowing Experience Application by clicking the link below. Please note that it is essential that students complete Section 1 of the form and turn it into their Student Services Representative at MUC or DMC or their Student Support Associate in East Lansing. Your designated representative will assist you with the new process for obtaining approval and all required signatures.
Please visit the Alumni Mentor List located on the MSUCOM Career Guidance page.
