Support Our Students

From giving them the benefit of valuable experience to helping them choose a career, the support our alumni give current students can aid them immeasurably in their professional growth.

Get a Shadow

There's no better way for a student to see what life as a physician is like than by experiencing it firsthand. We invite all our alumni to allow a student to shadow them in a clinical setting, offering them an opportunity they otherwise wouldn't have until their third or fourth year. 

Register for the shadowing program

(City, State)

Please select all that apply.

Be a Speaker

Many of our student groups are actively looking for alumni to speak about their specialties and experiences. This helps students learn more about their career options and gives you the opportunity to mentor your future colleagues.

HOST a Student

Our Help Our Students Travel (HOST) program gives you the opportunity to host a student in your hometown while he or she is traveling to interviews or working on a rotation away from USC.

We're always looking for alumni who can:

  • give a tour of the area in which you live or practice.
  • speak about your own experiences.
  • provide an insider’s view of the medical profession and your specialty.
  • share a cup of coffee.
  • treat a student to dinner.
  • host visiting students at your home.
