Shadowing Opportunities 

The Office of Pre-Professional Health collaborates with local healthcare providers to help students locate shadowing opportunities in their pre-professional area of interest. Also, the office actively collaborates with Tennova Healthcare in Clarksville, TN, on a volunteer program at the hospital. APSU students who have selected the Pre-Med, Pre-PA, Pre-PT, or Pre-OT designations in AP OneStop will receive an email about the Tennova Volunteer Program application process at the appropriate time in the academic year.

Tennova offers volunteer experiences in the following departments:

Emergency Department
Cath Lab

Please note, these locations are not the only sites students can shadow, and the office encourages students to be proactive in seeking out shadowing opportunities to build a competitive graduate school application. Students interested in shadowing should be proactive in talking with potential locations about expectations related to appropriate shadowing attire, schedule, communication, and other items deemed essential by the shadowing office.
