Shadowing: I shadow docs everyday at work....but I havent technically shadowed any docs yet in the sense that adoms are looking for. Will shadow MD, DO, NPs/PAs including CRNAs before applying - aiming for roughly 100hrs.
Research: None. Don\'t plan on any...I\'m too old. Time is of the essence. Wouldn\'t mind being involved after med school though (if that\'s possible, lol). I was required to take an upper division research/statistics course for my nursing degree and did some very basic research/paper writing, found it enjoyable/doable.
I\'m adopting a fellow SDNer\'s motto: My list has a lot of reaches, but I\'m not about to say no to any of them :)
