We've designed the Virtual Clinical Education to be more than just "shadowing." While we cannot replicate the experience of going into the operating room or being in an exam room with a patient, we've incorporated actual high yield clinical learning with case-based education. We know medical schools will look far more positively upon case-based clinical learning than the typical "online shadowing" experience.

Yes! We understand the most important part of the entire process is interacting with the doctor, so we'll occasionally host online sessions to ask your questions live!

It's never too early (or too late) to start shadowing. No matter where you are on your journey to becoming a doctor, Virtual Clinical Education can offer incredible insights into the daily life of a doctor and the various specialties you can pursue.
