Medical students learn as patients during
NIH-funded program

Several University of Washington medical students attended an experiential demonstration of acupuncture at a workshop Oct. 2. The medical students volunteered as patients to see first-hand how acupuncture was done. The workshop is part of an ongoing effort to acquaint medical students with the types of alternative and complementary treatments patients commonly seek.
