Guam - Over the next couple of months med and pre-med students from across the nation will be on island volunteering their time at various clinics and medical facilities. AMC Dr. Vincent Akimoto said, "At American Medical Center we realized that with such a large amount of student coming we wanted to make sure their experience is coordinated and as they get to meet with our patients they understand that they are in a real medical setting and so there are some ground rules that we will orient them to."

Twelve students will rotate through the different programs on island where they will be introduced to attending physicians, and nursing staff. The medical students will gain exposure, and training in a real clinic setting while the pre medical students will be able to shadow. Akimoto says there is still an opportunity to join the program and those interested can attend the orientation tomorrow at AMC at 12pm.
