  1. Not sure about San Diego but I found one in LA on healthcareshadowing. It’s actually hard to find one right now because of covid, I found one luckily on this platform, you can give it a try as well. Otherwise, you might wanna consider virtual shadowing, there are some platforms you can use for this along with the one mentioned above - after all, learning is more important. Just make sure you’re well aware of the prerequisites your targeted med school has, if any - the hours and medical area, etc. Once you’ve found one don’t forget to ask about a recommendation letter and whether or not you’ll get one.
  2. Finding a professional who’ll let you shadow them is quite difficult right now ‘cause of the pandemic and doctors and physicians are already working extra hours. You should still give it a try though. Also, if you’re up for virtual shadowing, you might wanna give that a shot as well - healthcareshadowing, paeaonline, etc. These are the ones I’m aware of. There are others available online as well. You can also try searching for a physician or doctor on these platforms - along with the zip code or preferred location.
  3. Covid has made shadowing challenging as physicians are more likely to reject you at the moment. Have you considered virtual shadowing? There are some platforms that can help with that - healthcareshadowing is one and there are other sites as well. You might also need to check if the med school you’re planning for has some special prerequisites like hours of shadowing. And as far as your profile is considered, you might wanna check for that with the school as well, maybe it’s not that average after all.
  4. Have you tried connecting with the local hospitals or clinics in your area? If a hospital has a website and a shadowing opportunity, chances are they have listed that on their website or at least on their social media page, you might wanna check that first.
  5. Offline shadowing is obviously not recommended right now, due to the ongoing pandemic but if you already have an option, even if it is to shadow an orthopedic NP it’s better to go with it, ‘cause searching for another option right now will be difficult. You might also wanna check if your school has any specific shadowing requirement - a particular field or hours? I opted for online shadowing, connected with a Physician online via healthcareshadowing, and completed it a couple of weeks ago since Physicians were reluctant to offer offline shadowing.
  6. I bumped into this website a couple of months ago as I was looking for a physician in Minnesota, healthcareshadowing, they have a pool of healthcare professionals from all across the country, I am hoping you’ll find one who’s in Orlando as well. I know how hectic this search can be, so good luck with it. You might also wanna keep looking for options that provide virtual shadowing as well since it’s becoming increasingly popular amongst the premeds considering the ongoing COVID situation.
  7. Are willing to consider virtual shadowing or are you only interested in offline shadowing only? Because you might not be able to find too many options for offline shadowing right now. You can still opt for virtual shadowing, I know a couple of platforms like healthcareshadowing, virtualshadowing, that can help you with this. You can also customize your search based on your area of interest and the location as well.
  8. You might wanna work on your science GPA for starters. You should also get some shadowing hours to add to your profile, preferably with a Physician since you’re aiming at PA school. There are some websites where you can search for a healthcare professional to shadow based on your preferences, healthcareshadowing, and other sites like this will help you get in touch with a healthcare professional and unlock virtual as well as offline shadowing opportunities.
  9. It’s better to search for a shadowing opportunity online instead of searching offline as you might not be able to get ample opportunities searching offline because of COVID. There are some platforms like healthcareshadowing, thatt connect you with doctors, physicians or other healthcare professionals as well, once you’ve registered on their website. You can then unlock either the traditional or virtual form of shadowing. I am sure once you do a search you can find more platforms as well.
  10. Are you only interested in offline shadowing or would you like to give virtual shadowing a shot as well? I know of some platforms that can help you with that, I also used one and completed mine a couple of days ago - healthcareshadowing, virtualshadowing, etc. Hope this helps!
  11. I think there’s a program for this in California - Physician Mentor Program at California Hospital Medical Center (CHMC). You can google it for more details. 1 of my friends got placed through this program. On the other hand, you can always go online and search for such opportunities, as I did. I registered on this platform called healthcareshadowing.com and they connected me with a Physician - based on the area and specialization I had selected during Sign up. I initially connected with him over a call and I was later able to get a shadowing opportunity as well. Best of luck!
  12. Getting in touch with the local hospitals will obviously be the first thing to do. You can also check for such opportunities online - healthcareshadowing.com, northwestern.edu. You just need to register on their portal and they will connect you with healthcare professionals based on your interest and area of choice. I also found an opportunity using - healthcare shadowing. The registration process is easy and as I was looking for a Physician in California, they connected me with one. They have this “customize your search” - based on location. I am sure you’ll be able to find one in Houston too. Also, I think right now it’s a little difficult to find such an opportunity, considering the on-going situation due to COVID-19. It’s just that the doctors are having a hectic schedule and you might not be able to get the desired results from this opportunity. Anyways, all the best!
  13. You can start by contacting the local hospitals in Northern New Jersey and check if they offer a shadowing program. Right now it’s a little difficult to find such an opportunity, considering the on-going situation due to COVID-19. It’s just that the doctors are having a hectic schedule and you might not be able to get the desired results from this opportunity. You can also search for such opportunities online - healthcareshadowing.com, globalpremeds.com, that connect you with healthcare professionals based on your interest and area of choice. You can customize your search and find medical professionals based on their locations and specialties as well.
  14. For shadowing opportunities, you can either try to contact the local hospitals to check if they have a shadowing program, or you register on platforms online that assist with this. There are a few I know of - healthcareshadowing.com, northwestern.edu. They connect you with healthcare professionals based on your interest and area of choice. You can customize your search and find medical professionals based on their locations and specialties as well. You can get in touch with them via video or audio call and if they find your profile to be very impressive, you might even land a shadowing opportunity.
  15. You can always go online and search for such opportunities - healthcareshadowing.com, globalpremeds.com, are some of the websites that connect you with healthcare professionals based on your interest and area of choice. You can customize your search and find medical professionals based on their locations and specialties as well. You can either try to contact the local hospitals to check if they have a shadowing program. Once you get hold of their contact details, you can either cold call them or send them a professional email. Don’t shy away to give details about your profile and achievements so far and request them in a subtle way. Also, mention how this experience will add-on to your skills and profile.
