To log your volunteer hours, go to prehealthshadowing.com and sign in to your account. Then, go to “Volunteering” → “Log-In Hours for Volunteers” and fill out your information.

We will not certify volunteer hours for attending live sessions or watching previously recorded sessions.
No, you cannot earn volunteer hours by attending live sessions or watching previously recorded live sessions. However, you will still earn shadowing hours for doing so (provided you pass the end-of-session quiz). The hours can be used on healthcare applications, but make certain with your program before doing so.
Both Volunteers and Team Members volunteer their time to support Pre-Health Shadowing. However, a volunteer has more flexibility in terms of their commitments with Pre-Health Shadowing tasks. You are able to set up your own schedule and contribute as your schedule allows. A team member works directly with the board and Lead of Pre-Health Shadowing in meeting strict deadlines for weekly tasks and program projects.
We do require that all volunteers log at least one hour per month in order to remain part of Pre-Health Shadowing’s volunteer team. However, certain projects may require a greater time commitment. Log in to your account at prehealthshadowing.com and go to our Volunteer Hub to see the time required to participate in each of our projects.
