Health Professions Shadowing Program (HPSP)

The following announcement comes from the Center for Pre-Health Advising.  Yes, history majors can work in healthcare-related fields too!

The Center for Pre-Health Advising has partnered with UW Health to offer UW-Madison students a two-week residential shadowing program in early August 2017. The program is designed to help students underrepresented in healthcare build a network of connections with professionals. Over the course of the program, students will learn about current trends in health care from providers in our community through presentations, visits to health facilities, and shadowing at UW Hospital.

Program dates: July 31 - August 11, 2017

Applications are due by Sunday, March 5 at 11:59 PM. Please find the application here:

1. Must be in good academic standing with school or college.
2. Students must be full-time UW-Madison students who have completed at least 2 semesters of coursework on the UW-Madison campus. Thus, incoming freshman will not be selected nor will graduating seniors.
3. Applicants must lack connections to health care professionals, and must have minimal to no shadowing experience.
4. Applicants must be from groups underrepresented in the health professions, including, but not limited to: ethnic and racial minorities, first generation college students, and students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds.
5. Students may NOT apply if they are in the process of applying to a professional program.
6. Selected participants must be available to attend the entire program.
7. Selected participants must provide proof of immunizations, complete a background check, and attend a hospital orientation prior to the last day of classes.
