Hello. I have a couple of questions about shadowing a doctor. First, what exactly does shadowing entail? Do you follow the doctor for a day or is it multiple visits? Second, those of you who are shadowing or have shadowed doctors did you know them beforehand? I've found several DOs in my area through the AMA website, but I don't know how to approach them. I'm unsure on the protocol for this kind of thing. (...if there is a set standard at all, that is!) Any ideas or experiences on shadowing will be greatly appreciated!
