What to do (?! )months before your medical degree is official? Medical students helping with the coronavirus pandemic

Me and a medical student at 2019 Burning Man sewing up a finger laceration. Skills, but no degree yet.

What to do with exquisite medical knowledge but without a medical degree yet? Due to the pandemic, medical student’s schooling has been turned on its ear. It is all hands-on-deck with patient care and medical students rotations have been curtailed, furloughed, stopped.

Here’s an article from our Dean Schwenk MD highlighting the medical students and physician assistant students efforts to help wherever needed. I am proud of the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine and its ingenuity at this time of need.
