Who We Are

Healthcare Shadowing is a unique company that allows students at various educational levels and healthcare professionals (doctors, physician assistants, nurses, etc.) to connect and arrange shadowing opportunities. Students sign up and purchase credits at a desired level which allow them to schedule online meetings with a healthcare professional of their choosing in their desired field of study or interest. The students can also schedule a meeting with a consultant to request to shadow a healthcare professional of their choice based on various criteria. The consultant arranges the shadowing opportunity for the student by connecting them with the healthcare professional they will have the opportunity to shadow.

At Healthcare Shadowing, we take care of the hard work and connect students and healthcare professionals in a convenient and efficient manner.
