Shadowing Experiences

Whether you are an undergraduate student planning for the future or a medical student trying to gain more exposure, shadowing in the Emergency Department at the University of Louisville can be a very valuable experience. We are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to work with our residents and faculty in our busy, Level 1 department.

How To Apply

We offer shadowing experience to high school students, undergraduates, medical students, and non-traditional visitors. Interested observers should complete the Observer Application and submit it to .  You will find the UofL HIPAA Privacy Guidance document here.

Once your application has been received, you will receive a link to our scheduling calendar and you may choose the shadowing opportunities that best fit your schedule. Please note that due to the high volume of medical student clinical rotations in the Fall, we do not offer any shadowing experiences July 1st – November 15th.
