Six Selected to Participate in Pre-Health Shadowing Program

March 26, 2015

Six Hampden-Sydney College students were recently selected to participate in the newly established H-SC/Centra Pre-Health Rotational Shadowing Program.  Pictured below (left to right), Benjamin Lam '17, Jake Farrar '16, DJ Bines '17, James Lau '17, Brant Boucher'17, and Robert Kerby '17 will begin their rotations this semester and will have the option to continue their shadowing in the fall of 2015.

Through this program, these students will be exposed to various fields of medicine as they rotate through departments that include: Family Medicine, General Surgery, Cardiovascular Medicine, Emergency Medicine, the ICU, Gastrointestinal Medicine, OB/Gynecology, Radiology, and Pharmacy. The shadowing experience afforded by this partnership will provide these students with valuable healthcare exposure hours that will increase awareness of potential career paths and enhance preparation for graduate and professional programs.

The H-SC/Centra Pre-Health Rotational Shadowing Program will be ongoing, and applications will be solicited in the fall 2015 semester for a new set of rotations to begin the following spring.
