We are doing inpatient, outpatient surgical, writing pre and post op findings, admission and discharge orders, pre surgical consults, recovery and the option to do research and publish with the staff. Also, Dr. Fortson wants us to present case studies on what we see with other medical students twice per month. Before each surgical rotation, we must draft up a short explanation on what to expect! The staff is well organized, willing to help, and never too busy to explain policy and procedures. Also, you get hands-on experience by assisting the NP and Dr. Fortson. Once you do your consults and exams, it is your responsibility to enter all notes on computer at both clinic and surgery. Once you enter the clinical notes, each student is required to submit billing and insurance information via template! Breakfast, lunch, and evening meals are complimentary for all medical students! Not too shabby!
Low Cost Caribbean MD
My love affair with medicine dates back as far as I can remember. So for me, attending a school that could boast the academic resources I need; and also, be located in the Caribbean was a no brainer.
I did my undergrad at Arizona State University and graduated with a BS in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology. I have wanted to be a physician since as long as I can remember.
