shadowing opportunity already approved?
If you have an approved precepting or shadowing opportunity, please review our HIPAA privacy rules and dress code.
With the HIPAA PRIVACY rules, the student should sign and return a confidentiality agreement AND a Business Associate Agreement before they arrive to shadow.
Regarding 'local' students, some students may already know some of our patients outside of the clinic. In those cases, it may be inappropriate to have the student shadow, and we ask that you remove yourself from those situations as it's possible we're dealing with an especially sensitive health issue.
After you return your completed paperwork, we can begin scheduling times to shadow.
You should dress professionally. Dress as if you were attending a professional function or a funeral. You cannot go wrong dressing that way. You get one chance to make a first impression.
Remember: If you present a professional appearance and attitude, people will be more likely to treat you like a professional.
