There are limited non-clinical rotations (also known as observerships and/or shadowing experiences) available at Children’s Minnesota. A non-clinical rotation is a learning experience that involves observation of the clinical activities of a member of the Children’s professional staff and involves no hands-on contact with patients. This experience takes place over a concentrated period of time and must have a specific sponsor who is a member of the professional staff.
Arranging a non-clinical rotation
To secure an observership through the Graduate Medical Education (GME) office, you must:
- Be at the medical student level of training or higher
- Find a member of Children’s professional staff to be your preceptor (sponsor)
- Schedule your own observership dates with your preceptor and notify Graduate Medical Education of the proposed dates
- Contact the site at least two weeks before the start of your non-clinical rotation to:
- Confirm name and contact information for your preceptor
- Request the link for online enrollment
- Confirm the dates and times you will be observing
Please contact the GME coordinator at the campus site you are planning to observe for more information or with any questions.
