Focus of the Month:
Getting to Know New Students at Your Practice

When a new medical student joins your practice, you might find out that he or she has worked as a pharmacy tech before medical school or has taken a keen interest in public health disparities. With that background information, you can tailor the rotation experience to better suit individual interests and take advantage of existing strengths or skills. 

You and your practice team can also benefit from the unique insights of each student, but first you'll need to know more about their professional backgrounds. One way to capture this information is to ask all new students to fill out a profile form that highlights backgrounds and interests. Visit this new page to learn more about how to use this information at your practice...
