Year 1 & 2 Shadowing Shifts

Several Emergency Physicians across many of our teaching sites are willing to have first and second year students accompany them during a clinical shift. This is particularly helpful for students who are exploring career options, and those who have a possible interest in Emergency Medicine.

Due to the large number of learners in our sites, and the limitations of learning in an “observation only” capacity, students are limited to two “shadowing” or “observation” shifts in their first two years, and the shifts must be free of other learners (students or residents).

To arrange a shadowing shift, you may contact one of the EM Years 1 & 2 Preceptors to check their schedule and availability. Once the dates are arranged, please make sure to notify the EM Program Manager, Ms. Janet Chung at janet.chung@ubc.ca.
