At DePaul Univeristy the Pre-Health Program has a very selective Shadowing Program. The Shadowing Program is intended to provide current DePaul students who lack connections with Chicagoland or home-based practitioners. We currently have the following practitioners willing to allow students to shadow: physicians, physican assistants, podiatrists, dentists, veterinarian, nurse, physical therapists, and occupational therapist. If interested in being a part of the Shadowing Program, please email CSHPreHealth@depaul.edu. Please note: In order for DePaul students to be eligible for the Shadowing Program, they must have sophomore status and a minimum of a 3.00 cumulative GPA and a minimum of a 3.00 science GPA.
Students are also able to access the Alumni Sharing Knowledge Network (ASK). This network of alumni and friends serve as career mentors, working with students one-on-one. The mentors provide services such as informational interviews, shadowing, practice interviews, and more.
