Position description for shadowing

What should I write as the position/leadership description on the common app activities section for physician shadowing?

shadowing
commonapp
In all honesty, I did the same thing (except due to COVID, I did Physician-Shadowing online), and I put it under a hobby, so just as a recreational activity sort of. Out of mere interest and a career-oriented activity
I meant that's there's a place where you describe your role. Like president, member, etc. But for this i wasn't sure. I was thinking observer or something, but does that sound too passive

You should state your role/experience "Medical Shadowing Experience" and the description should share the institution where you shadowed, who you shadowed, what you learned, and the skills you acquired.

This sounds similar to an internship. Perhaps put 'intern'? If not, 'student' sounds like it could also work.
