Notre Dame Medical Observers Application For 1 credit experience based course with Family Practice Residents

Author: Provided

The residents and faculty of the Memorial Hospital Family Practice Residency program have volunteered again this year to provide an in-depth shadowing and directed reading experience to ND undergraduates heading to medical school. This program is highly competitive and we will be able to accept 15-20 participants. 


Students will shadow their resident 4-5 hours per week all semester.  Each week students will turn in a 2-page reflection of their experience to Asst. Dean Kolberg.  At the end of the semester, students will write a 4-5 page summary reflection synthesizing their own experience and comparing what they have seen to On Call by Dr. Emily Transue, a book about residency.


Students must fill out the application and return it via e-mail to and bring a paper copy to 219 Jordan by 5 pm Tuesday, November 26th in order to be considered.


Thank you!
