Learn about shadowing, volunteer and part-time job opportunities to gain exposure to healthcare occupations. Co-sponsored by the Center for Career & Professional Development and the Director of Academic and Funded Internships.

Opportunities we will discuss include:

Williamson County Medical Reserve Corps

TAMU College of Medicine Standardized Patient Program

St. David’s Hospital of Georgetown Shadowing Internship

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 Spring 2024.

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 a.m. shift)
Women’s Services
Outpatient Surgery
Emergency (2 consecutive weeks)
Student’s choice option for one week
