Allow Undergraduates to Shadow You

Shadow Many osteopathic medical schools require applicants to get to know a DO as part of the application process. Undergraduate students often contact NCOMA to request the contact info for osteopathic physicians willing to allow students to shadow them in preparation for their application to medical school. You can help prepare these future osteopathic medical students by giving them an opportunity to experience medicine up close and personal.  To participate, complete a short form using the link below.  Note: The info collected is solely for the purpose of creating a contact list that is shared with undergraduate students as requested.
