We need more job shadowing in medicine
from MedPage Today (opinion)
Edwin Leap, MD, writes, "We have created a system where shadowing is expected for acceptance in professional schools even as some hospitals make it very difficult (or impossible) to shadow. In some instances, it's about concerns over privacy. In others, it's simply that the number of people who desire to shadow is so large that it's very difficult to get a time slot. And in others, it's that there are medical, PA, or nurse practitioner students and residents rotating through the hospitals as part of their graduation requirements. In other words, it's just dang crowded."
