What is a unique aspect of education at your medical school that has been valuable to you thus far as a medical student?

I mentioned before that Richmond has a lot of residents that live below the poverty line. Starting in early MS2, we have the opportunity to join clinicians on house calls around the city and see patients that cannot make it to the hospital or doctor. Being inside the homes and neighborhoods of our patients gives a unique perspective and helped me develop a greater appreciation for the challenges many people face when it comes to balancing life challenges and their health.
