PODCAST: Trinity Medical Student Volunteers With the Medical Association of Georgia | Medical Reserve Corps

How it all started:

"An email arrived inviting med students to join the State of Georgia’s Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). The MRC is an organization of doctors, nurses, PAs, EMTs, and med students who are the first medical boots on the ground for disasters in Georgia. They establish mobile hospitals and provide medical care. With extra time in isolation, I signed up and shortly received a notice for locations at food banks available to students. I requested an assignment, received my orders, and deployed the next day to serve for two weeks."

What Medical Students Wish They Would Have Done In Their First Year

 

Arthur Conan Doyle once wrote, “It is easy to be wise after the event.” This holds especially true for medical school. While in the throes of the first year, many medical students can feel like they are in a whirlwind of exams, clinicals, and classes. However, many graduating medical students look back and see how a few different actions could have made things much easier.

A Medical Student’s Unique Education in a Pandemic

A (Trinity) Medical Student's Unique Education in a Pandemic

By Mason Bennett and originally posted here 

“We will cease all remaining clerkships. Please thank your preceptors, collect your things, return home, and practice social distancing.”

The email’s words were disappointing, but not surprising. Other medical schools had already pulled their students from hospitals. My school had opted to keep us in as long as possible so we could have the unique learning experience of providing health care during a pandemic. But now, safety and prudence exceeded our learning opportunities, and I was getting pulled during the last week of my surgery rotation. I worried about how this would affect my schoolwork and learning.
