We're very excited to have a first year medical student from Tufts University School of Medicine joining us today for a three day clerkship where she gets to see family medicine first hand. Tufts has a program in which students from Maine spend a lot of time studying medicine at locations here in Maine. Hopefully this will provide Maine with a steady supply of new physicians in the years to come.
Allowing the medical student to sit in on your appointment is optional for patients. She's bound by the same privacy rules as Jen and me but you're under no obligation to have a student present during your visit.
