NMMC to Host Physician Shadowing Program

TUPELO, Miss.—North Mississippi Medical Center is accepting applicants for its Physician Shadowing Program for pre-med students who have completed their junior year in college and aspire to a career in medicine.

“Students will spend part of their summer doing rotations with physicians in various specialties,” said Rosalyn Campbell, NMMC recruitment specialist.  “The experience is designed to better prepare the students to enter medical school.”

Two sessions are available: June 10-28 and July 8-26. Each student receives hourly compensation, a lab coat and support materials.  The Health Care Foundation of North Mississippi funds the program through the Dr. P.K. Thomas Jr. Endowed Scholarship Fund.      

The mentoring program helps students understand what physicians do and why, and can help guide students toward a particular specialty. The program also shows the students local practice opportunities. “Our physicians are tremendously supportive of this mentoring program,” Campbell said. “They generously give their time to help these young people.”

Interested students should apply before April 12. For more information, email or call (662) 377-3245 or 1-800-THE DESK (1-800-843-3375).
