Clinical Opportunities & Shadowing

What does a neurologist do? How would I spend my day if I were to enter this field? What types of patients would I treat if I were to go into this field? How do the neurology sub-specialties differ?

If you are in the pre-clinical portion of your medical training, it is possible to get answers to these questions by shadowing neurologists in their clinics. Shadowing experiences may be as short as a single afternoon or as long as a semester or summer and can be tailored to meet your needs. 

If you are interested in shadowing experience, please contact Ms. Olivia Burch at 843-792-3222 or email
