For Students Interested in a Career in Medicine
By shadowing a Summit Medical Group (SMG) doctor for one full day, students can experience firsthand the critical role they could play as future doctors.
The 1-on-1 Shadowing program offers one-day career exploration for students aged 18 years and older who are interested in pursuing a future in medicine. This interactive program allows students to spend a day in the life of an SMG doctor in a specialty area of interest.
Shadowing activities include unique insights into doctor-patient interactions, testing, exams and procedures. Students also have the ability to ask medical professionals questions throughout the day that may inform and inspire them, and also help them better determine their field of study.
Participants are required to have their own transportation to and from the Shadowing Program. Lunch can be purchased at SMG’s Berkeley Heights campus and Florham Park facility. Students participating at other SMG facilities should bring their own lunch.
