As they prepare to graduate from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Medicine, medical students now have the opportunity to reinforce doctor-patient relationships through the college’s first online class. Senior medical students have a lot on their plate as they prepare to enter the medical workforce. Most of their time is spent in research, clinical rotations at hospitals and preparing for their internships after graduation. “That travel time for them is quite extensive,” said Dr. Amy Thompson, associate professor and chair of UC’s medical student education, and one of the instructors in charge of the pilot course. “Many of them take two months off to do all of that – at least a month off. So they’re not getting credit for any work.”
