Virtual Shadowing for Premed Students

Welcome to Virtual Rounds!

Experienced Team

Our team of doctors and medical students have had a wide experience with a variety of patient encounters and are eager to share their knowledge with you via this virtual shadowing experience.

Active Learning

Throughout each virtual shadowing session, you will actively participate by answering and asking questions about the week’s proposed case. Like an in-person shadowing experience, we strive to stimulate students intellectually and ultimately reaffirm their interest in medicine.

Valuable Extracurricular

There is not any particular virtual shadowing opportunity that can guarantee their sessions qualify as “shadowing hours” on your medical school application. However, our sessions will certainly count as an extracurricular activity, not to mention a valuable experience for you to reflect on in your AMCAS or AACOMAS application.

How will each Virtual Rounds session will work?

Virtual Round Session

What does each Virtual Rounds session contain?

Each session will contain one or two doctors and/or medical students who will each present a case. Each case presentation will include: 

  1. Case Details 
  2. Differential Diagnosis 
  3. Physical Exam
  4. Assessment/Plan 
  5. Pathology 
  6. Sources

Throughout the case you will also fill out a SOAP note which will give you the opportunity to learn and enhance your medical documentation skills prior to beginning your medical education.

Each case presentation will last approximately one hour as well as will be recorded and later posted to our YouTube channel for viewing after the live session.

What makes Virtual Rounds different from other virtual shadowing options?

We are a smaller team which means your voice will be heard as well as attendance noticed and appreciated during our sessions. This will allow you to actively participate with our presenters during every session. Why is this important? Our goal is to have our sessions will leave a lasting impression on you in order to potentially give you something significant to reflect on within your medical school application. 

Can I put these hours on my medical school application?

These session hours can 100% be put under your “Activities Section” of your application and labeled as “Virtual Shadowing Experience”. The important part about these sessions is to make sure you actively participate and synthesize as much information as possible during the session so you have something to write about within your activities section. For the contact info please list the following info: 

  • Person to contact: Drew Porter, M.D. 
  • Email: 
  • Location: Memphis, TN

Please note at this time, there is no “Virtual Shadowing” or “eShadowing” experience that will count as actual shadowing hours on your application. If the virtual shadowing program says they will give you a “Certificate of Completion”, it doe not mean the medical school school will count the hours as shadowing hours. The certificate is just a way for virtual shadowing programs to gain credibility.
