Pre-Clinical Shadowing

The Department of Pathology and Microbiology offers job shadowing opportunities to first and second year medical students (M1 and M2) enrolled at UNMC. Our pre-clinical shadowing program provides students a chance to observe our pathologists in a workplace setting. It allows students exposure to the practice, as well asa perspective into pathology as a career. Direct exposure to a specialized medical field is usually the best way to make decisions about future career paths.

Our program is designed to be a one-time observation only experience, lasting two to six hours. The job shadowing experience does not fulfill any clinical or internship requirements; nor does it provide any hands-on experience.

Dr. Subodh Lele is our Pre-Clinical Shadowing program director. If you are interested in job shadowing a pathologist at UNMC, please contact Jillian Koons directly at or at 402-559-7969 to arrange an opportunity. Please provide her with your name, your medical year, contact information, preferred pathology specialty, and available dates. We will make every attempt to pair you with the pathology interest that you may have.
