(Sorry for all the questions--tell me if they bother you, and I promise I'll shut up for a bit! ) So I recently emailed a pod in my home about shadowing, and he sent back a very prompt reply telling me about what days are "shadowing days" at his practice. My question is that I will be going back to this area for only a week before heading out-of-state for a month of research and classes. Should I plan to shadow before I leave (2 days available for shadowing), or would it just be better to wait until I'm back after summer school and avoid the awkward "great to meet you! See you in a month!" situation. I think waiting make more sense logistically, but I'm so eager to start shadowing as well, so I really don't know. What do you think? Thanks!
