Research Project Description:
This project is actually not clinical but educational. Medical educators include patient presentations to help to illustrate concepts in medicine but what do students learn from these presentations about the patient experience. This is a new project that the medical student can help to create. We will compile an inventory of the patient presentations in the first two years of medical school and assess students’ reflections on how they did or did not contribute to their education. It will not need full IRB approval. This will help to design future educational experiences for students.

Does this project have an international component or travel?
