Southwestern University established a partnership with St. David’s Hospital in Georgetown in 2014 to provide unpaid, 1-credit shadowing opportunities for up to three (3) current students for a total of 10 weeks each fall and spring semester. Students are selected through a competitive application process, which opens March 5 and closes March 30, 2018, for Fall 2018.
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)
Emergency (2 consecutive weeks)
Student’s choice option for one week
