For Pre-Health students, shadowing professionals provides a direct, first-hand look at the careers they intend to pursue. Observing professionals interacting with patients in a clinical setting enables students to develop an informed view of what it means and what it takes to be a practitioner of medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine. Without opportunities to shadow, students will simply not have the level of clinical exposure necessary to be a successful candidate for professional schools. However, before students can being shadowing professionals, they actually need to find someone to shadow! Unless a student is well-connected to practitioners in their field of interest, the process of identifying and contacting professionals to shadow can be incredibly cumbersome and discouraging. Thus, our goal was to develop a directory of every licensed physician, dentist, and veterinarian in Texas that students can peruse to identify health professionals that they can contact.
ShadowTexas was a student group founded in May 2018 at the University of Texas at Dallas that worked to provide all Pre-Health students a fair chance at succeeding in their pursuit of a career as a healthcare professional.
