If you are a high school student looking for medical experience, you should consider one of our Global Pre-Meds programs. 

We have designated sessions for high school students who are looking for pre-med experiences abroad. Students who are 16 years or older can get experience on the frontlines of international hospitals – something that few pre-med or pre-health students have on their resumes. 

Shadowing a doctor in high school

It can be challenging for students looking to shadow a doctor. Most people have to use their personal connections to the medical field to find an opportunity that works with their schedule and interests. 

We make it easy for students because all you have to do is apply and you can be confident that you will be getting an amazing learning experience. We select all of the medical doctors who serve as your mentors because we want you to have the best teachers. 

You will be able to observe a range of medical cases when you shadow a doctor with us. Your mentor will make sure that you are able to see the most interesting and relevant cases during your two week program, even if that means allowing you to observe with a colleague.

If you are trying to shadow a doctor as a high school student, you may find it difficult to shadow a doctor during the school year. We host programs several times a year, during school breaks, so that you can focus all your attention on the experience.
