My Shadowing Experiences
Over the summer and throughout my senior year of high school I have had the opportunity to shadow two doctors. My first experience with shadowing was with a Physician's Assistant (Jenna Klopfenstein) at Orthopedic One. I was able to follow her and her boss around their office and listen in on appointments with their patients. I learned a few basic things about knee and hip arthritis. I was also able to observe knee and hip replacement surgeries. Recently, I was able to follow around a Neonatal Physician (Kris Reber). I watched several Caesarean sections and observed premature babies in the NICU at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. I learned many valuable things about premature babies. These experiences have changed my perspective on many things and have given me an insight on what my future could be.
