The Incoming Medical Students Shadowing (Shadowing) Program is a collaborative offering from Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) and the Alberta Medical Association’s Section of Family Medicine, and Section of Rural Medicine. The program provides new medical students from the Universities of Alberta and Calgary with the opportunity to experience the specialty of family medicine and all it has to offer.
Testimonials From Past Volunteers:
“I really enjoyed participating in the program. I loved the opportunity to showcase the variety in family medicine. The program was very well organized and easy to participate. I look forward to participating again in years to come.”
“I think this is one of the most valuable things that we do at ACFP. Get the students early and treat them well in our clinics. They will remember us all throughout med school. The impact is very minimal on the practice flow as well. They have no skills to hone yet so their role is to watch and absorb. “
The 2022 Student Shadowing program was a huge success! Help us repeat history by volunteering as a Physician Participant.
