I am selling my body, well technically I am renting it out, to the Medical School. Having last year volunteered to be a Guinea Pig in a research trial, my altruistic action this year is to be a model for the second year OSCE (in second year, all the patients are 'normal' and the OSCE assesses examination technique). I have been assigned to a DGH about 25 miles from home which means leaving the house at 6.55 to get there by 8.30am.
I get paid £30 for the day, thus valuing my time at a little over £3 an hour!!!!
Being male, I will be doing any of the examinations:-
- Respiratory (front & back)
- GALS / Musculoskeletal
- Blood Pressure
