Shadowing Complementary Professionals

Second and third-year students shadow a team member for one half-day each semester and reflect on the experience. They are assigned groups of people they are permitted to follow who may fall outside the definition of health care team, e.g. maintenance/housekeeping, lab technician, clergy, security, x-ray technician, registration personnel, dieticians, etc. Students do a total of 4 half-days over the course of two years.
