Shadowing Program

Shadowing Program

The following are faculty who are available for shadowing opportunities through the Surgery Interest Program. A bio sketch of each faculty in the various surgical disciplines is available by clicking on a specific name. If an email address is not provided, please call the phone number listed or you can search on the University of Michigan directory:

Undergraduate Students & Non-University of Michigan Students

Undergraduate students and non-University of Michigan students are only allowed to shadow in the clinic. Please contact a faculty member directly, one at a time please, to express your interest in shadowing and to inquire about shadowing opportunities. Proper documentation is required for all shadowing opportunities, which will be provided to you upon faculty approval. The Surgery Interest Shadowing Program only allows two days of shadowing annually per student. The two days may be split between two faculty members.

University of Michigan Medical Students

University of Michigan medical students are allowed to shadow in the clinic and/or operating room and can contact the faculty directly for permission. U-M medical students have completed the necessary documentation during their medical student orientation; therefore, additional documentation is not required unless the faculty's department has department specific requirements.

International (Non-U.S.) Students

If you are an international (non-U.S.) student, please contact the University of Michigan Medical School Global Reach Office to determine eligibility.
