Timing of shadowing

Hello All,

I shadowed 4 different physicians back 2012 and 2013. Does shadowing have to be recent? Thank you very much!!

I personally would think it would be better to have them be more recent. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

I wouldn’t discount the experience you had in 2012/13. But the pace of change in healthcare, especially with the ACA and unknown future of it, have changed a lot of the way that medicine is practiced. Unfortunately, doctors have to work within business constraints. It probably wouldn’t hurt to see how things are now, and bonus points if you can compare and contrast the different times and comment on them for your application.
