It can be difficult to accumulate the shadowing hours needed to get accepted into medical school. That’s why we collaborated with more than 20 of the world’s best doctors to give you a behind-the-scenes look at practically every specialty.
Internal medicine shadowing allows you to explore the daily life of a doctor who treats internal diseases. This course is perfect for pre-med students with a particular interest in this specialty.
During internist shadowing you will follow Dr. Mili Mehta. Dr. Mehta is a cardiology fellow who trained for 3 years as an internal medicine resident and 1 year as a chief medical resident. She originally received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania, followed by medical school at Columbia University School of Physicians & Surgeons. Dr. Mehta served as the Vice President of her graduating class and also as a member of the admissions committee.
Following medical school, she completed internal medicine residency at the University of Pennsylvania and then a chief resident year. Dr. Mehta is currently a cardiology fellow and is committed to teaching others interested in medicine. She enjoys working as an advisor for MedSchoolCoach, helping pre-medical students gain acceptance to medical school.
With internal medicine shadowing through the Virtual Clinical Education Series you will learn about the daily life of an anesthesiologist, and earn a Certificate of Completion that you’ll be able to add to your medical school application and resume. By the end of the session with Dr. Mehta you will be able to answer questions, such as:
What’s the next step in workup of a prolonged PTT?
Bleeding gums at the dentist most likely suggests an abnormality in which of the following?
Which of the following is most likely to be low in a patient with hemolysis?
Which of the following can cause severe sepsis in a patient with asplenia?
Which of the following is not seen in severe babesiosis?
Students with a particular interest in internal medicine can get hands-on experience shadowing a doctor who treats internal diseases with this course.
Don’t forget to take the quiz after you complete the virtual shadowing so you can earn your certificate!
