Student Shadowing

Beginning June 1, 2021, students over the age of 18 can begin the application process for a shadowing experience.  Availability is limited at this time.


Students have the opportunity to observe our faculty during an emergency medicine shift.  Shifts are 4 hours in length, and can take place at any of our four main hospital sites - UPMC Presbyterian, UPMC Mercy, UPMC Shadyside, and Magee Women's Hospital of UPMC.  There are paperwork and orientation requirements that must be met prior to shadowing. 

University of Pittsburgh undergraduates - you can apply to the Office of Medical Education shadowing program where we offer a single shadowing experience. Please contact for more information.

Please contact Alexis Morris at for more information.


Our department does not offer shadowing with Advance Practice Providers.  Please click here for more information on the APP shadow program.
