Benefits of a Physician-Scientist-Tailored Curriculum at a Medical Student-Run Free Clinic
We designed a curriculum to help sustain pre-clinical knowledge for MD/PhD trainees in their graduate training phase while securing regular providers for our student-run free clinic. MD/PhD involvement increased from 1.91 to 2.45 students-per-clinic-day following implementation, and participants affirmed increased preparedness and comfort entering medical school clinical clerkships.
