How to ask doctor for internship?
I am heading to college on the pre-med track, and even though I don't know if I'll pursue medical school in the future, I'd like to be well rounded. I'll be a freshman this fall and am hoping to intern during the summer. I know two doctors, one more than the other. The doctor I don't know very well is in the state I'm attending college which would help me reapply for residency my sophomore year. (Classified as Temp Res.) I have texted him a couple of times as my cousin gave him his contact and advised me to shoot him a text. Nothing much, just small talk about medical topics. How/when do I approach asking him for an internship? I don't want to be rude by texting, but don't want to be rude by calling him out of the blue. Do you think I'd be better off talking to the doctor I know more (OOS)? Thank you!
