Saint Peter's Shadowing Program

The Health Professions Office is proud to offer a Premedical Physician Shadowing Program at Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick. This program is open to Rutgers undergraduate students who have at least one year of residence as a student of Rutgers – New Brunswick/Piscataway. Candidates must have a minimum GPA of 3.6, have satisfactorily completed General Biology, General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry along with having a file with the Health Professions Office that contains at least two letters of recommendation.
If, at the present time, you are missing one or two of the prior requirements for the Saint Peter’s shadowing program, do not submit an application until you have satisfied them.
It is a wonderful opportunity that will give selected participants a unique opportunity to observe the practice of medicine. Participants will be paired with a physician mentor/team and will be given an opportunity to observe the physician on rounds, in the office, watching certain procedures, attending departmental weekly Grand Rounds and participating in the medical student/resident conferences daily.
More information is available in the HPO.
