Building on coursework from MDU 4003: Introduction to the Medical Professions, MDU 4004: Physician Shadowing allows students to shadow a doctor in various fields of medicine. In addition to online didactics related to patient privacy, professionalism, and compassion, students will gain hands-on experience by shadowing a practicing physician at UF Health. This class is a great CV builder and provides undergraduate students a unique opportunity to observe patient care.. Student’s grades are based on a few essays and quizzes, as well as a “professionalism” grade rated by the doctor being shadowed. Students who have completed/are in the process of completing MDU 4003 must submit an application to be accepted into MDU 4004.
