As a pre-medical student, I will be shadowing doctors and other healthcare professionals in various settings such as hospitals, clinics, and community endeavors. As such, in compliance with the Healthcare Information Privacy Act, no patient, his or her diagnosis or any other sensitive information will be discussed here. The writing that is done regarding my experiences will purely be generalized reflections of the things that occurred during the experience.

In keeping with the policy, I kindly ask that you refrain from using names, diagnoses, or specifics of any patients, relatives, friends, or otherwise in the comment section without express permission from the involved party.

Thank you. Your cooperation is appreciated.
