|People sought to pose as patients for medical students|
The Office of Medical Education is seeking people to hire ($50 per afternoon) 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.
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 medications and health problems
We would need you to spend one afternoon at the Medical School being interviewed and examined by three different second-year medical students. The experience would be much the same as a visit to your own doctor’s office. You would 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.)
Patients are needed for the following Tuesday afternoons: Oct. 27 and Nov. 3 and 10, from 12:45 p.m. to 5 p.m. We would need you to commit to only one of those afternoons, not all three.
If you are interested, please contact Dawn at 777-4028 in the Office of Medical Education as soon as possible. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about this experience. Please feel free to pass this information along to others you know who may be interested.
