How bad is only having around 10-15 hours of shadowing if I have a good amount (4-5k) hours of combined paid clinical work and clinical volunteering?
I'm in the same boat, lots of in hospital clinical work, little shadowing (it's effectively unlawful in hospitals in my province), hopefully it won't hurt us too much.
N=1, but last year I applied with 30 hours of shadowing and no other clinical experiences and finished with 3 acceptances. Quantity =/= quality, and it really is how you sell that experience
That's good to hear actually. Congrats to you! I'm curious what the SDN adcoms think about this.
