Did you know that a compassionate doctor can positively affect a person’s health? Medical students train with actors before they can work with patients. Work with a professional actor to simulate medical scenarios and improve as an actor, nurse or doctor. The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) includes questions aimed to rate communication skills. Learn basic scripts of medical symptoms and social histories and how to improvise as a medical student to feel more comfortable communicating with patients, and providing care and comfort. Practice your bedside manner before it’s for real.
