FARAGO, Deborah  and  BECA, Juan Pablo. Role of medical students in the accompaniment of patients. Reflections about a true case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2020, vol.148, n.9, pp.1328-1330. ISSN 0034-9887.

We share the experience of a clinical relationship that arose between a medical student and a patient hospitalized due to a SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia. The analysis of this experience and the discussion of medical students’ possible role in patient care suggest that they should be included as members of the health care team during their clinical practice. This would mean a positive contribution for both the patients’ care and the students’ learning experience.

Keywords : Education, Medical; Patient Care Team; Students, Medical.
