The surreal drama of actors playing sick for med students
Few people can say they've never faked the flu to skip school or stay home from work. The people who play sick in Corinne May Botz's fascinating series "Bedside Manner" do so for noble reasons: Helping medical students learn how to diagnose patients and hone their bedside manner. Her strange, almost surreal, portraits and detail shots show actors in medical gowns pretending to suffer from hemorrhaging, confusion and other things. Medical schools call them standardized patients.
