I am finishing my second year at CC before transferring to a university, so I don't currently have access to a pre-med advisor, which sucks. I am planning to go into primary care, so it seems like shadowing would actually be more valuable to me than general volunteering at a hospital. I'd also like to start volunteering at a free clinic or something this summer, but we'll put that aside for now. How do I actually contact a doctor about this? Do average clinic/private practice docs just let people who ask them shadow them for a while? I'm really lost on how the whole system works cause it does seem like a bit of a burden to the doctor. Can anyone help?
