Episode 171: Olivia Josephsen – A Guide To Shadowing In Pathology
In this episode, Olivia Josephsen and I take you step by step through how to get shadowing opportunities. While this is about pathologists assistants, these tips can be used in any laboratory profession.
We explain how to find someone to shadow, and how to contact them. While shadowing, it is important to ask questions, and we tell you why.
After shadowing you should follow up with the person you shadowed, especially if you intend to ask them for a letter of recommendation.
Shadowing isn’t all about the student either. Listen to find out how the person being shadowed can gain from it too.
We talk about virtual shadowing, and how it is a good option to increase availability of shadowing opportunities.
If you’re an experienced PA who is open to being shadowed, add #PathAShadow to your social media so students can find you.
