  * Best days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

  ** Shadowing available Monday – Thursday; if you shadow in the morning, you can observe testing procedures including nuclear stress tests and fitness testing. If you are truly interested in cardiology, there may be opportunities to shadow surgeries in Tupelo. If you enjoy shadowing Dr. Irwin and would like to observe surgeries, let him know!

*** These physicians handle shadowing on an individual basis. You will need to write a letter to the physician including your available shadowing times and request permission. Please include that you are a pre-medical student and member of the AMSA. These physicians have allowed MSU students to shadow in clinic as well as surgeries in the past, so let them know your interests!
