The Walla Walla Valley Medical Society has sponsored a pilot-program for pre-medical student shadowing. The Walla Walla Clinical Shadowing Program collaboration includes the institutions of higher education (Whitman College, Walla Walla University, Walla Walla Community College), and local hospitals, offices and clinics. We are excited to introduce a web-based resource to streamline the process of physician shadowing.
A growing trend in medical school admissions is the emphasis on physician shadowing. Our state medical school, the University of Washington, has recently stated that a strong applicant should have 40 hours of physician shadowing prior to applying. The Walla Walla Valley Medical Society has dedicated itself to aiding students in meeting that recommendation.
