Thanks for your question. The number of patients I work with depends on the week since I’m still rotating through different specialties in medical school. Right now I see about 5 people per day in the clinic or close to 25 people a week for medical care.
My current research is on patients that are no longer in the hospital so I only see their old electronic charts not the people in person. It depends on the project- when I was working on my PhD I didn’t see anyone for medical care but saw at least 10 people a day for research. I like the variety.
