  • Over the course of the Spring 2007 semester, more than 50 MIT prehealth students gained exposure to the field of medicine through participating in the MGH-MIT Shadow Program. The creation and implementation of this program has been a collaborative effort, shared between the MIT Careers Office Preprofessional Advising Staff and Dr. Patricia Donahoe, Emeritus Chief, Pediatric Surgical Services, of Massachusetts General Hospital.

    The goal of this program is to provide MIT’s prehealth students with further opportunities to see first-hand what a typical day is like for a physician and to gain exposure to a health profession working environment. The program is just one of many possible opportunities that we encourage students to participate in as a way to explore medicine and determine if a career in the health professions is a good fit for them.
