Tours & Job Shadowing
High School Tours
The High School Student Tours were established to bring various medical professions to life and to empower young people to make informed choices about their future careers in medicine. During the tours the students learn about preparing for and applying to medical school. Often our medical students will meet with the high school students in a question and answer session.
The students will also be able to get a sense of the University of Maryland’s School of Medicine’s commitment to excellence as well as the faculty and staffs, dedication to the success of our students.
The Job Shadowing Program
A job shadowing experience involves a student spending a day or two here at the University of Maryland with a professional in their area of interest. The student "shadows" one or more professionals during the experience, attempting to gain an understanding of what professionals do while they work and, at the same time identifying the links between classroom learning and work requirements. The job shadowing program runs June through September.
