RARE Compassion Program
April 14, 2023
Hear from patients and a medical student who have participated in the RARE Compassion Program!
The RARE Compassion Program provides an opportunity for medical students to learn about the unique needs and challenges individuals and their families face living with an undiagnosed or rare disease. The program offers students a chance to build compassion, understanding, and empathetic communication skills, and gain interest in specializing in fields most relevant to rare disease. For patients, the program is an opportunity to advocate for the rare community, gain a greater understanding of the medical system and become better prepared to communicate with their doctors and other medical professionals. The program is open to students and patients worldwide.
