The Pre-Healthcare Volunteer Program is for undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students who are applying to medical school and planning on becoming physicians. The program gives volunteers the opportunity to participate in direct observation of physician-mentors at Cedars-Sinai during a 9- or 10-week rotation. Rotations are offered 3 times per year: fall, spring and summer. Priority will be given to applicants who haven't already shadowed a physician.
All applicants will be called to complete an initial screening over the phone. Applicants who meet the GPA and availability requirements will be sent a supplemental application. Interview applicants will be selected after all supplemental paperwork is reviewed. Those who are selected to participate in the program will be notified two weeks prior to the start of the rotation. Applicants who are not selected will be offered other volunteer options in a clinical area in the medical center
We are currently at capacity for the summer and fall 2018 rotations. Applications for the spring 2019 rotation will open on November 1, 2018. Information on summer 2019 will be posted in March 2019.
