If you are interested in seeing what a job in the medical field is like, take a look at physician shadowing opportunities for many areas throughout Alaska. Physician shadowing opportunities give you a better understanding of what the typical day of a doctor is like. Shadowing programs may give you some unique clinical experience that you can talk about in your applications and interviews for medical school.
Pursue opportunities that fit both the doctor’s schedule and your area of interest. Remember the number of hours spent shadowing is not nearly as important as the quality of the experience. Be sure to be involved to the extent that you can speak with passion about your experiences.
