|Patients sought for medical students|
The Office of Medical Education is seeking people to hire as patients for our medical students. We are looking for people who would like to help students learn and practice history taking and physical exam skills. You will be paid $50 for your participation. The students learn a lot from this experience and your willingness to help would be greatly appreciated.
We need a diverse group of healthy men and women, ages 18 to 80, with the following:
• a flexible schedule
• transportation to and from the University
• limited number of health problems (certain medical conditions may prevent you from participating)
We need you for one of the following Tuesday afternoons from 12:45 until 4:30 p.m. Sorry, you can’t come more than once. The afternoons are Jan. 9, 16, 23 and 30. During this time, you will be interviewed and examined by three different student physicians. The experience would be much the same as a visit to your own doctor’s office. You will be asked to share your personal medical history and allow the student to do a physical exam. This does not require shots, blood tests or other invasive procedures. Students are observed by physicians and all information given would be confidential. If there is medical or personal information you do not wish to share, you don’t have to.
If you are interested, please contact Dawn at 777-4028 in the Office of Medical Education as soon as possible. Please feel free to pass this information along to others you know who may be interested.
