Student Responsibilities - what is expected of students in terms of hours, days of the week, shadowing or actual support?: 

Schedules will vary based on the service(s) that the student has elected to shadow, but daytime hours during the weekday are preferred. Early evening hours will also be available to shadow the ER service. ER is a 24hr service, but students receive the best experience during the day with multiple departments running together. Students will be allowed to handle patients and participate in hands on treatments at the discretion of the clinician(s).
