Students needed to serve as patient “models” for medical conference

Earn up to $80 for the day or $20 per session!

Patient “models” are needed for an orthopedic medicine / prolotherapy conference being held on the UW Madison campus.  The physicians at our conference will be learning a technique for treating chronic pain called prolotherapy.  Volunteers DO NOT RECEIVE any injections!!!   The physicians will be examining and palpating your joints and will mark anatomical landmarks with wax pencils. There is no pain involved!   The workshops also provide an educational opportunity for you to get a great review of anatomy, learn about examining joints, and work with caring and professional physicians. We recommend “models” wear shorts and a tank top, t-shirt, or sports bra.  You can change in the bathrooms or locker rooms at the conference center.
