You can all certainly comment on that if you want. However, my reason for posting this is that the author, Stephanie Horan, claims that my state of NJ has the highest...

Physician LOR question
Hi guys so I have a question that I have been trying to get opinions on. I have been unable to get any shadowing in person as most of the clinics and hospitals around me are part of a larger health care system which does not currently allow in person shadowing.

I am working as a scribe but I scribe for a PA although I am in the process of trying to move around to see if I can be placed with a physician... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)
