Physician Shadowing Program

Dr. Shawn Standard with a student in scrubs as part of the physician shadowing program We offer college students summer shadowing opportunities with Drs. Herzenberg, Standard, Conway, Bibbo, and Siddiqui. We receive numerous requests to shadow with our doctors and have only a few positions available. A person who is shadowing may observe clinic visits, physical examinations and surgical procedures. Shadows may join the physician during patient rounds, attend teaching conferences, and utilize the medical library. Shadows are not allowed to participate in any patient care activities, question or examine patients, or scrub in on surgical cases as they are not covered by Sinai Hospital’s liability insurance.

Thank you very much for your interest in our 2020 Summer Physician Shadowing Program. The deadline for applying has passed. Please visit this page at the end of the year for information concerning our 2021 program.
