Pre-Health Professions Advising

Volunteering / Shadowing

Most health professions schools require applicants to have completed hours of shadowing and volunteering. Research is also encouraged by many schools. See below for potential local opportunities or visit the Health Professions Advisor for information on how to get started.

Shadowing Opportunities

  • Local Shadowing
    Contact the Health Professions Advisor for opportunities

  • Rollins Observership Experience
    Rollins partners with AdventHealth to allow students from Rollins to participate in a medical observership. Students are assigned a particular area such as surgery, emergency medicine, and family practice. Students spend 8 hours/day for one week during either our January Intercession or over Spring Break. The long day of interaction allows students to observe the life of a physician and to talk with physicians, nurses, residents, and medical students.  Contact the Health Professions Advisor to learn about the application process.
