Paid models for physical exam and ultrasound education at Yale School of Medicine

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 specific dates are: 1/11, 2/2, 2/9, and 2/23. Paid models will receive $15/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. Paid models for the 1/11 session should be prepared to have their eye dilated.

See the Job Description for more details. You may apply at, the job is titled PE and POCUS Exam Model.
