DMC Sinai-Grace Physician Shadowing Experience
The pursuit of his B.S. in Neuroscience has helped to establish the foundation of Usher Khan’s lifelong aspiration to become a physician. But it is through hands-on experience, such as volunteering efforts and participation in shadowing programs, that Khan seeks to earn irreplaceable training opportunities. Not only are these opportunities valuable in the long haul, but they also give the aspiring physician the chance to positively impact the lives and health of patients in need of treatment.
