NEW YORK (AP) Medical students at the University of Colorado in Boulder say they’re able to “see” through the eyes of their patients to detect cancerous tumors, which they call the “superpowers” of their degrees.
The school has offered medical students in its Boulder campus a three-month fellowship program to provide training on “superpower detection,” a term used by medical schools in the United States to describe how doctors identify cancerous tissue and tissues that are resistant to treatments.
The program was first offered in Colorado last year, and is expected to expand in the coming months.
Medical students say they feel more comfortable and connected to patients, and say they are learning about the role of science in medicine, a field that has been stigmatized by the pharmaceutical industry.
The fellowship, offered to students at both the University and Colorado schools, includes a certificate of completion.
It is available to students who are enrolled full-time and pay tuition.
Medical school officials say the program is a way to support medical students, who are often financially strapped and have limited time.
They also say the fellowship helps students improve their work ethic and make them more accountable for their work.
They hope that the program can help students achieve better outcomes for their patients.
“Our students are the future of medical education, and our fellowship is designed to ensure that they get a meaningful education in medicine in order to help them become a better, more accountable member of society,” said Dr. Michael Rieder, the associate dean of medical students and dean of the CU School of Medicine.
Students who take the fellowship are expected to complete two courses and have the option of taking a third course during the fellowship.
The CU program also includes a “supertraining” program, in which the students will train in different areas of medical training, including a medical internship, on a regular basis.
Rieder said the goal is to provide medical students with the opportunity to work with doctors in their field, and help them hone their skills in the field.
“I think it’s really important for medical students to get out into the community, to get involved with community outreach, to connect with others who are interested in the medical field,” he said.
The Colorado program is also aimed at helping medical students who want to go into private practice.
