Meet ACMC’s 2014-2015 Medical Students

You may see some new faces the next time you’re at ACMC. They’re future doctors on rotation at ACMC. Every fall ACMC is fortunate to host several medical students from the University of Minnesota’s Rural Physician Associate Program (RPAP) and Des Moines University.  Occasionally students from medical schools across the nation choose to conduct their rotations at ACMC.  Many are looking at a rural experience to see if they would like to practice in a small town after they have completed their training.  During their time at ACMC, they work one-on-one with our physicians and their patients. This year ACMC is hosting three medical students.

Meet our 2014-2015 medical students Allison, Libby and Alexandra.

These three future doctors and other students at ACMC are ready and eager to assist their preceptors and interact with patients. So if you hear the words “the medical student will see you now,” consider yourself lucky to play a role in furthering their educational experience.
