|Patients sought for medical student training|
The Office of Medical Education is looking for people to hire as patients for our medical students. We are looking for people to help students learn and practice history taking and physical exam skills. Payment will be $12 per hour for your afternoon of participation. The students learn a lot from this experience, and your willingness to help out 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 medications and health problems
We would need you from 12:45 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. for one of the following Tuesday afternoons (sorry, you can’t come more than once). The afternoons are Jan. 12, 19, 26 and Feb. 2. During this time, you would be interviewed and examined by three different student physicians. The experience will be similar to 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 is 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.
