JMSA Shadowing Program Report 2

Message from Yoshiki Takeyama:
 
Through the JMSA shadowing program, I shadowed Dr. Kano [JMSA Mentor] for 3 sessions. I had the opportunity to observe what a typical day is like for a physician and it was very exciting. I saw everything from a routine check up to patients with more serious illnesses and how to diagnosis and treat them. I was originally only scheduled for one day but decided to go for more because of how interesting and educational the experience was. Dr. Kano spends a great amount of time with each patient and it was clear her patients feel they are well cared for. This shadowing experience definitely strengthened my passion for becoming a doctor and I highly recommend it to those considering a career in healthcare.

JMSA Shadowing Program Report 1

Message from Christina Theodorou:

Through the JMSA Shadowing Program, I was able to shadow Dr. Erich Anderer [JMSA mentor], a Japanese-American neurosurgeon practicing at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn.  I watched as he performed an laminectomy on one of his patients, and got a chance to see a spinal cord for the first time (aside from my anatomy cadaver!).  As a student at Northwestern's Feinberg School of Medicine, I haven't had the chance to rotate through a community hospital and it was very interesting to talk with Dr. Anderer about the differences between large academic centers and community hospitals. Through the JMSA Shadowing Program, I was able to spend a day one-on-one with an attending surgeon, in a field I may not have had the chance to explore otherwise. It was a wonderful experience and I recommend it to anyone interested in the field of medicine, at any level of training.
