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.
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.
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.
Enter your email address to join our mailing list. After joining the list, you will be sent each week’s Zoom invite. There is no cost for this virtual premed shadowing opportunity. Consider this a part of our dedication to your success as a pre-medical student.
Each session will contain one or two doctors and/or medical students who will each present a case. Each case presentation will include:
Along with each session, there will be a Google Form that you fill out. The form’s link will be sent to you along with each week’s Zoom invite. The form includes: a SOAP note, a 10 question quiz, and a feedback section. Throughout the case you will practice writing a SOAP note which will give you the opportunity to learn and enhance your medical documentation skills prior to beginning your medical education. You will fill out the SOAP note throughout the presentation and the rest of the sections until after the presentation.
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.

Motivate MD will do the hard work for you so that you can focus on learning as much as possible during the live session. You must earn an 80% or higher in order to receive a Certificate of Completion. The certificate will be automatically emailed to you after you submit the quiz. There is no deadline for the quiz.
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.
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:
Please note at this time, there is no guaranteed “Virtual Shadowing” or “eShadowing” experience that will count as actual shadowing hours on your application.
Every Wednesday at 8 pm CST!
