Shadowing Steps

To Set-Up a Shadowing Experience

High School/Undergraduates

  1. Contact a provider or provider's office to determine whether or not they allow shadowing. If they do, with the provider or provider's office, decide on a date, time and location to meet for the shadowing experience.
