We are looking for physicians in all specialty areas who are willing to serve as mentors for shadowing for USF pre-medical students. Students usually spend ½ day per week with their mentor in the clinical practice observing the professional activities of physicians in the clinical setting. This can be modified based on the agreement of the clinician with the student and the nature of the clinical practice.
Students will be informed of the necessary testing and immunizations they will need to be in the clinical setting, notably PPD testing and routine immunizations. In addition, they will be provided some training so that they understand confidentiality and the stipulations of HIPAA.
If you are willing to participate please contact Dr. Steven Specter, Associate Dean for Student Affairs, USF COM and provide contact information. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or 813-974-2068. Students will contact the physician or designate to set up a date and time to meet that is convenient to the physician.
