This is what you need to know:

Each time slot is 5 hours long (from 7am-12pm) and you will not be expected to do anything but shadow. Proper attire for the OR consists of scrubs, which will need to get from a new scrub vending machine (the resident you are shadowing can show you or ask a staff member). You will be expected to meet your resident at the front desk of the OR (on the second floor of the main hospital) promptly at 7am to begin your day. You will need to bring and wear your medical school badge. If you don't know how to get there go to the Information Desk on the main floor of the hospital and ask for help.  Please plan your time accordingly.  It is easy to get lost in the hospital!


We will notify you of when sign ups will go live. Please sign up for the listserv if you want to receive that information. Please note that shadowing spots fill up quickly and are given out on a first come, first serve basis.

If you want access to the scrub machines (only useful for repeat shadowers) on your card please go to the surgical services office (2nd Floor Memorial Hospital) to have your ID activated.

Thanks for your interest!
