Applications now closed for the Spring 2019 shadowing trip!    Check back on our website in the fall for our Spring 2020 applications.

Eligibility Note

At this time, HCASB is only open to University of Washington undergraduates who are matriculated – Team Leaders and Participants must be undergraduates registered for the following quarter at the time of Spring Break! If you are ineligible, and are interested in developing your own shadowing experience, feel free to contact us at for information or advice. There is no GPA requirement. Good luck!


HCASB Participant Experience

Just want to go on the trip? Then apply as a participant! Accepted participants can expect to attend orientation in early March, attend the trip during spring break, and then turn in a reflection essay about their experiences after the trip.

*Although we do our best to consider pre-health interests, HCASB cannot guarantee that all participants will be placed into sites with job-shadowing opportunities of their first choice pre-health interest.

A link to the Catalyst application will be available on the homepage of our website. Participant applications undergo ROLLING admissions, so the earlier you turn in your completed application, the better! Applicants will be notified of their application status and decision by early February.

Scholarship Applications

Full and partial scholarships are available through an application on request. If you interested in going on the trip but are worried about finances, we highly encourage you to apply as a Team Leader or Participant as well fill out the separate scholarship application. Please do not let money discourage you from applying!

A link to the Catalyst application is available on the homepage of our website. Applicants will be notified of their scholarship application status by early February.

HCASB is a completely student-run organization. As such, we always welcome students to help us make the trip possible every year. Consider exercising your leadership chops by joining a committee, or developing a site for HCASB as a Team Leader. Find more information on our Committee and Team Leader pages!
