Made possible by the Occidental College Office of Pre-Health Advising (OPHA) in the Hameetman Career Center, 10 Oxy pre-meds spent the last two weeks of their winter break "shadowing" doctors at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a teaching hospital run by USC’s Keck School of Medicine, to get a better sense of what the practice of medicine entails. Their packed 10 days, which began as early as 7:30 a.m., included rotations in 10 different areas: general pediatrics, cardiology, genetics, rehabilitation, pulmonology, gastroenterology, plastic surgery, rheumatology, hematology and dentistry. Teams of two observed surgeries and accompanied physicians on their clinical rounds in a different department each day.<br />
