Shadowing Offers a Unique Opportunity to Explore Patient Experience and the ‘Hidden Curriculum’ in Medical Education

Beginning just this past January 2014, 250 third-year medical students from the University of Liverpool School of Medicine in the United Kingdom have completed a unique teaching placement called ImERSE – Improving Experience through Regular Shadowing Events.  Part of a new emphasis on integrating the physical and biological sciences with the humanities and social sciences, the ImERSE placement grew out of an effort to capture patient experience data to drive patient safety and quality improvement efforts.
