Medical Placements And Observerships


Gaining hospital experience, clinical placements, physician shadowing, doctor observerships and patient contact is difficult. While most medical schools look for clinical and medical experience on your medical school application, many students are unable to pursue these opportunities locally. Many students gain clinical experience in the global health setting abroad, which is often limited to 1-2 weeks. While valuable, global medical exposures do not always relate to North American healthcare practices and healthcare models.

Our diverse network of medical professionals is here to support you in securing medical placements and physician shadowing opportunities. Our number one goal at MedApplications™ is to ensure you are matched to a clinical experience that can add value to your medical school application. Key observerships include: internal medicine, family medicine, general surgery, diagnostic radiology, neurology, gastroenterology, cardiology and pathology.

The process involves the review and submission of your CV, Transcripts and motivations for pursuing a clinical elective. Based on your interests and passions, we then access our database to pair you with an available medical observership. We assist you with the paperwork and observership requirements. Once the shadowing opportunity has been accessed, you will work with your medical coach to prepare. In the preparation phase, we orient you to the upcoming medical shadowing placements, teach you what to expect and how to get the most of your rotation. For pre-medical students interested in practicing rural medicine, we work closely with rural health organizations to facilitate medical placements for students and trainees. If you have a particular area of specialty that you are interested in, we will do our best to fulfill that request.
