Cleveland Foot & Ankle Clinic (CFAC) Shadowing (1st Year Students)
Students should contact the Office of Academic Operations and Institutional Research for assistance regarding shadowing opportunities.
All students are required to shadow in one or both of the CFAC clinics during their first year in the program. A schedule will be distributed to all students at the beginning of the academic year or will be listed in the syllabus of a course requiring the shadowing experience. These shadowing experiences are considered mandatory. If this requirement is not met and all scheduled sessions not attended, the student will be subject to academic and disciplinary actions.
In addition to the required CFAC shadowing, students in all years are encouraged to visit clinical programs when they can find the free time in their schedules to do so.
If visiting a program outside of an assigned (registered for college credit) clinical rotation that will consist of hands-on experiences rather than just observational, students must notify the Office of Academic Operations and Institutional Research prior to the hands-on experience taking place, or immediately following.
