A lot of the time doctors have medical students shadowing them to see how it is to work the job. Have you guys gotten to this stage yet in your learning? I have not yet, but I can't wait to finally get to this stage in my career.

What is it like shadowing a doctor? Have you had to shadow a rude doctor?

I have shadowed 2 doctors during the internship during the summer. You can find opportunities before medical school. All doctors were polite and really friendly.

Shadowing helps you to see how adaptive physicians are. Doctors constantly read, write, research and collaborate. It's kind of dedication to life. We actually see the daily sacrifices of doctors.
