The AAMC has recently crafted a statement on "Guidelines for Clinical Shadowing Experiences for Pre-Medical Students." Please read this short document prior to arranging for clinical shadowing and/or volunteer opportunities.

It may be helpful to complete HIPAA certification as you seek clinical experiences as some sites may require it or highly encourage it
