Job Opportunity as a paid model for physical exam and ultrasound education at Yale School of Medicine

Hello students!

We are writing about an opportunity to get involved with the Clinical Skills Course at Yale School of Medicine. In this course, medical students learn the fundamental elements of bedside medicine. We are recruiting paid models to help medical students as they learn physical examination and point-of-care ultrasound.

Paid models will get hands-on exposure to a particularly fun part of medical school, work closely with medical school students and faculty, learn something about physical exam, and get paid for their time!

The initial time commitment is every Thursday from 1-4pm from January 6 – March 3, 2022 plus a few introductory and debriefing sessions to be scheduled at mutually convenient times. Paid models will receive $13.50/hour for their efforts.

Participants will require no formal training and are not expected to have a medical background. They do need to be willing to have a physical examination or ultrasound performed on them by multiple learners of different genders for educational purposes. Examination may include the head, neck, back, chest, abdominal, inguinal region, legs, and feet. Examination will not include direct examination or exposure of the breasts, genitals, or buttocks.

All medical students, faculty, and models must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and will be given personal protective equipment to use in keeping with medical school standards.

See the Job Description for more details. Indicate your interest on this form by December 8, 2021. We will hold an informational session for interested individuals in a few weeks.
