Alexander Martin Creates Phrasebook For Clinicians with Spanish-Speaking Patients
Alexander Martin, Class of 2017, combines his passion for the Spanish language and optometry.
One of my greatest goals is that my interns/future doctors would understand that they are looking at a whole person and not just their eyes. In any clinical rotation, they can learn to not just take care of someone's vision, but to also take into account their other medical and social issues with an interdisciplinary approach. They may be the only friendly face that the patient sees that day, or they may need that extra push to take care of their diabetes.
