If you are interested in shadowing a nurse or shadowing a midwife, you should consider our Global Pre-Meds programs. 

We provide doctor shadowing and global health experience abroad for students who want to be doctors, nurses, physician assistants, or midwives. We take into account your interests and path to healthcare during the application process so that we can make sure we give you the best learning experience. 

We select medical doctors to serve as mentors during our programs. While you may not plan on becoming a physician, you will be able to observe cases with that mentor that build your knowledge of medicine and patient care.

Your mentor may allow you to observe on the maternity ward with a colleague, if that is what you are interested in. Many students get the opportunity to observe Cesarean sections, as well as prenatal and antenatal care.

If you are interested in becoming a midwife or becoming a nurse, check out our program dates and fees.
