"I shadowed a pediatric nurse at St. Joe's Hospital for my job shadowing experience my sophomore year.  It gave me a better understanding of what a doctor's typical day was like, and it gave me good experience to talk about in my college applications and interviews for medical school.  It was also a great way to gain familiarity  with different specialties in the medical environment to help me narrow down my career interests."
