Shadowing a Neurologist

Any individual interested in shadowing a neurologist at UNC must first follow the instructions listed on the UNC Volunteer Services website to obtain a shadowing badge: UNC Volunteer Services

  • To shadow on the inpatient side, please reach out to Dr. Michael Wang to schedule a date to shadow. At this time, a shadow visitor can only spend one day per calendar year to shadow the inpatient neurology team.
  • To shadow on the outpatient side, one must first find a preceptor who is willing to supervise the shadow visitor. UNC Volunteer Services has implemented a form on its website that the preceptor needs to fill out ahead of time.
