You have a great team. Every individual’s knowledge completes the others’ knowledge. I loved the fact that the lectures were mostly focused on how to approach a patient. In Romania, we rarely have lectures that talk about these subjects. We often have to treat the patient and not the disease, but I feel obtaining the information that we used by simple talking is one of the hardest assets us medical students can acquire.
I absolutely loved Rachel. The workshops about how to talk with a patient should be mandatory in every medical school/university. I was pleasantly surprised we got the choice to talk with an actual patient today. Hearing about experiences transformed this subject from information to actual real life.
