I was looking for suggestions on contacting physicians that will allow premeds to shadow them. Although I know this varies from states to state I have received no luck in locating a physician that will allow me to shadow them. I've tried the hospitals but usually the volunteer coordinator tells me it goes against the privacy of the patient and that I'm not likely(being a premed and all) to be granted that duty. Has this changed because I always thought shadowing doesn't have to always involve me sitting on a patients consultation. I've contacted doctor's office personally before and always leave message on what my intentions are but never receive a cll bck. Does anyone know what step I should take now?
