Pair with a Professional

* Shadowing experience will consist of classroom simulations.
Ultrasound Shadowing is not offered on Shadow Day.

You will join these professionals on the job as they pursue their daily activities, seeing patients or working in the labs. The Shadow Day ends with a reception where you can meet faculty, Admissions Counselors and current students in our programs.

For students who wish to continue their education beyond their first two years of school, Upstate offers two options. The College of Health Professions is an upper division transfer college, offering bachelor degree education in seven exciting fields along with a Doctoral Program in Physical Therapy.
