Learn about the opportunity to shadow at our local hospital during a 10-week rotational shadowing program, as well as local hospital volunteer opportunities and other possible shadowing opportunities. Applicants who attend this panel historically have done better in the application process.

Southwestern University established a partnership with St. David’s Hospital in Georgetown in 2014 to provide unpaid, 1-credit shadowing opportunities for up to four (4) current students for a total of 10 weeks each fall and spring semester. Students will be selected through a competitive application process for this opportunity for Fall 2021.

At the hospital, selected students spend half a day (4 hours) for each of the weeks shadowing physicians, nurses and technicians from areas of the hospital that would normally be difficult to gain access to on your own. Rotations include

Surgery (Note: Surgery is always a very early am shift)
Radiology
Endoscopy
Women’s Services
Laboratory
Outpatient Surgery
Rehabilitation
Emergency (2 consecutive weeks)
Student’s choice option for one week

For more details, attend the information session and see the email publicity (to go out after the info session) for the application form link.

Southwestern University supports learning wherever it takes place. The Center for Career & Professional Development contributes to the Southwestern University Student Life MOSAIC initiative by providing advising, programming and resources to help students develop as a whole person. This event helps you to:
