How do I shadow a specialist in the medical field?

I know I want to become a kind of specialist in the medical field but I haven't narrowed it down to which one. I have seen several people during my own doctor's visits shadowing my doctor but my school doesn't provide a way to do this that I know of. So if there are any programs or websites that can help me achieve this, I would love to know!

Hi Kylie! Great question! Honestly, after you get permission from mom and dad just ask! If your parents or family know any specialists, ask if you can spend a day with them in the office. You can always try volunteering a local hospital. I'm a physician assistant and I started out as a volunteer at my local hospital. People may say no but there are nice medical professionals out there who want to help. Just keep trying!

Volunteer at your local hospital or low-income clinic. Ask physicians, PAs or other clinical providers if you can shadow them.

Use all your resources... friends of you parents or any other acquaintances might help you make connections in the medical field.
