Pursuing a career in healthcare requires investing significant effort, time, and finances, beginning at the undergraduate level. Witnessing the practice of medicine first-hand can help cement the decision to pursue a career in healthcare and give the enthusiasm needed to complete the long road ahead, or it can save you valuable time, stress, and money if you realize early on that healthcare is not right for you. Even students who are positive about working in healthcare benefit from gaining more insight into the life of healthcare professionals and operations of a hospital, helping you to narrow your interests, making you a stronger candidate to medical and health professional schools, and preparing you for the trials (and joys) ahead. In today's competitive application environment, extra experience shadowing, more clearly defined goals, and more awareness about the healthcare field can make a significant difference in admissions.
