I am currently finishing my MSW program. This year, my internship is in the NICU at a local hospital. Since I know different residents and attendings in the NICU and OB, I was considering asking them if I could shadow. I'm not sure how to go about asking though--do people usually shadow for just a day or for a more extended period of time? Also, I would hope that they would be receptive as I already have access to the hospital and have interacted with them frequently. I guess I'm just nervous about asking... Any suggestions?
