How should I ask for a shadowing opportunity?

So far, I've been making calls to a few optometry centers to ask for a shadowing opportunity. One of the receptionists told me to show up in person. I gave him my resume without directly speaking to their optometrist, who doesn't work on that day. Would it be better to speak with their optometrist directly? Also, how long should I wait for a call-back about the opportunity? I'm not sure how much longer I should wait for a call-back until moving on to ask at another center...

Should I spend the whole summer job shadowing for an optometrist center?

I was wondering if it's possible to shadow a doctor twice a week for the whole summer. Do most job shadowing only last for a week? How long can I shadow a doctor for?

Can I major in Business Management and go to Dental School or Optometry School?

I'm a freshman who just started college and I'm quite confused. At first I was a business major and then switched over to biological sciences because I've always wanted a career in the health field and thought that might be the best major. Now, I don't really think so. I either want to be a dentist or an optometrist, two things that I am interested in along with business. Will it be a bad idea to major in business rather than something like psychology or a science-major? Thank you. #college-major #business #entrepreneur #college #business-management #pre-dental #pre-optometry #dental #health #optometry
