The Junior Clinician role is evolving as we speak, and should be approached with an open mind. Generally, you will be paired with a Senior Clinician who will be your guide to the experience, be it shadowing, assisting with notes or impromptu clinical background research on UpToDate, or possibly some involvement in the history/exam as appropriate and time allows.

We suggest you use what you see during your shift as a springboard to learn about what is actually happening in healthcare, be it clinical, administrative, or public health.
