Well. I started shadowing my first physician today. I met him a couple times before since he's my parents physician. All in all it was a good experience for a first day. Got to meet and talk to many patients and offer my advice..at least what I know. He also gave me some charts to go through and was explaining various diseases, symptoms, and so forth. The doc has his own general practice, so it was mostly dealing with elderly patients and some young kids. Not quite sure how many weeks I'll be shadowing him, but he told me to come back in tomorrow and we'll work out a schedule.
