Hello SDN, I am going to be job shadowing a radiologist in about a week and was curious about how long people traditionally shadow doctors for. I've read posts here and people claim they have been shadowing for 10 months to a year. I was only planning on doing it for 1-2 weeks, for about 40+ hrs each week. This is what my pre-med advisor claimed I should do but according to what other people are doing i'm not sure if this is the best idea. The idea is to eventually get a letter of recommendation from him but I don't want to ask pre-maturely. I will most likely be shadowing him next summer also for about the same amount of time. Any feedback will be appreciated, thanks.
