I just discovered that the American Osteopathic Association has a website that lists DO’s who are interested in being mentors. This would have been a great resource when I was an undergraduate student searching for a physician to shadow, but unfortunately I didn’t know it existed. It never hurts to build a good network of people who may be able to help you out in the future, so I definitely plan on utilizing it as a medical student. A few of my readers have also asked about ways to contact DO’s for shadowing opportunities, and I think this would be excellent for that. If you’re interested, the program is called the AOA iLearn Mentor Program, and the website is http://cf.osteopathic.org/iLearn/home.cfm.
I had no luck with that websiteReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that. Maybe you can try cold calling physicians in your area? I found that sometimes worked for me.Delete
