Hello Utah! I have a student looking for a job shadow opportunity in your area- She actually wants to get into the profession- but has yet to see first hand- what it is we do. (Reminds me of me lol- I was 100% sure it was the right field for me- but familiarity with the depth and range of our profession, I was clueless…)
Here’s our prospective student’s message to you as well as a contact email:
I am very interested in a profession as a cardiac perfusionist but have never before had the opportunity to shadow a perfusionist.
In my experience, it is unlikely that a cardiac department will allow someone to shadow one of their providers due to the intensive nature of the field. With that being said, where/what is the best outlet for me to search a perfusionist that can accept someone to shadow them in the state of Utah?
I would really love to experience the profession before I take the plunge and submit applications to programs.
Thank you kindly for your time 🙂
