Shadowing Program

PREMED SHADOWING PROGRAM

NOTE: Becasue the demand is so high, many clinics are restricting students who can shadow their physicians. Some clinics and organizations are now requiring that students go through a shadowing program at their university.

UVU has arranged a shadowing program with Central Utah Clinic and IHC. These organizations assist students accepted into the program to set up shadowing opportunities with physicians. Students will receive 9-12 hours of shadowing with 1-2 different physicians. Listed below are the program requirements. If you are interested, print the application from the link below and submit it and your immunization records to Jennifer Orchard in LC 404a. Contact Jennifer Orchard with any questions. There are limited spaces available so apply early.
