Hi everyone,

I am in first year medicine and many of my classmates have started shadowing physicians in their specialty of interest already. I hadn't contacted anyone yet and was starting to get nervous that I was dropping the ball on this one. 

I got in contact with several physicians in pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties this week and I have set up some dates in the next few months to shadow. 

What I am wondering is: what should I expect? What will shadowing be all about (ex. will I be strictly observing or will there be some opportunities to practice my clinical skills)? I was also concerned about dress code and equipment; do I need my white coat and stethoscope or is that overkill?

Any tips for a first time shadower?

Thanks!
