Foundations of Clinical Practice (FCP) Year One:  Near-Peer Teaching Opportunities for Spring 2018 

During the spring semester, first year medical students are learning the various components of the physical exam. In an effort to provide additional practice opportunities, Dr. Matt Holley is seeking MS2-4s who would be willing to serve as standardized patients for small group practice sessions.  Practice sessions are held either at Methodist Hospital or the Simulation Center.

These sessions are meant to complement other standardized patient practice sessions planned throughout the semester. Volunteering to act as a standardized patient will help you gain more perspective on the process and may improve your OSCE performance. It will also help promote the success of your classmates.
