Second Opinions member and fourth-year medical student Noah Weingarten presented an overview of Second Opinions as an innovation in medical education at the 2018 Feinberg Medical Education Day, a yearly conference co-organized by the Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators (FAME) and the Augusta Webster, MD Office of Medical Education (AWOME). "As a result of the success of Second Opinions, I would encourage the proliferation of student-led healthcare consulting at other schools.”
