JMSA Shadowing Program Report 2
Message from Yoshiki Takeyama:
Through the JMSA shadowing program, I shadowed Dr. Kano [JMSA Mentor] for 3 sessions. I had the opportunity to observe what a typical day is like for a physician and it was very exciting. I saw everything from a routine check up to patients with more serious illnesses and how to diagnosis and treat them. I was originally only scheduled for one day but decided to go for more because of how interesting and educational the experience was. Dr. Kano spends a great amount of time with each patient and it was clear her patients feel they are well cared for. This shadowing experience definitely strengthened my passion for becoming a doctor and I highly recommend it to those considering a career in healthcare.
