Shadow a Pharmacist or a Student

Interested in shadowing a pharmacist at MUSC or learning more about a day in the life of a MUSC pharmacy student? Contact Madison Riley at

Shadowing opportunities are offered Monday - Friday and are based on availability of pharmacists and/or class schedule (depending on which shadow experience you are interested in).

In order to shadow a pharmacist, you must: 

  • Provide health documentation to include current TB (within three months of your visit), immunization records, Covid-19 vaccination record, and flu vaccine. 
  • Allow a month's notice before your anticipated shadow date
  • Wear professional business attire and act in a professional manner

The requirements to shadow a pharmacy student are much more lenient but still requires a month's notice.
