Alright, I'm set to shadow my first time this week. At the sake of sounding stupid, what am I supposed to do while shadowing.......(besides the obvious). This is an ER doc.............half the time she's just walking around. The other half she's sitting behind the nurses station writing. What's funny is that she was very encouraging about me shadowing but said that she moves rather fast and may not be able to teach much. Am I supposed to learn something from her??? I thought it was simple observation. Alright, this starting to sound lame.......maybe you could post something about what was the most rewarding thing while you shadowed???? Anecdotes are more than welcome.
