USDE Accepting Applications for FY15 Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success 

Application Deadline is June 23, 2015

**To ensure adequate time for the registration process, AACOM strongly recommends that potential applicants proceed to register immediately at Dun and Bradstreet, www.grants.gov, and https://www.sam.gov/sam/.**            

(June 3, 2015)  The U.S Department of Education (USDE) is accepting applications for its fiscal year (FY) 2015 Centers of Excellence for Veteran Student Success program.  The purpose of this program is to encourage institutions of higher education to develop model programs to support veteran student success in postsecondary education by coordinating services to address the academic, financial, physical, and social needs of veteran students.  Approximately $4.95 million is expected to fund 15 awards.  Please note: contingent upon the availability of funds and the quality of applications, USDE may make additional awards in FY 2016 from the list of unfunded applications from this competition.

The application deadline is June 23, 2015.  For information regarding specific requirements and additional details, see http://www2.ed.gov/programs/cevss/index.html.

Eligible entities are institutions of higher education.  Please note: previously awardees are not eligible to apply.

Program priorities:  Per section 873 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended, USDE will only consider applications that meet the program’s absolute priority, which include the following required activities for this particular competition: (a) establishing a Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success on the campus of the institution to provide a single point of contact to coordinate comprehensive support services for veteran students; (b) establishing a veteran student support team, including representatives from the offices of the institution responsible for admissions, registration, financial aid, veterans benefits, academic advising, student health, personal or mental health counseling, career advising, disabilities services, and any other office of the institution that provides support to veteran students on campus; (c) providing a coordinator whose primary responsibility is to coordinate the model program; (d) monitoring the rates of veteran student enrollment, persistence, and completion; and (e) developing a plan to sustain the program after the grant period.

Additionally, the USDE is interested in applications that address the program’s invitational priority.  However, under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(1), USDE will not give an application that meets this invitational priority a competitive or absolute preference over other applications.  The program’s invitational priority is as follows: projects that detail specific steps that will be taken to recruit, retain, and graduate veterans from groups with college completion rates that are below the national average – such as English language learners and homeless veterans – as well as veterans who are members of groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in postsecondary education based on race, color, national origin, gender, or disability.

AAMC Joins More Than 100 Organizations in Support of 21st Century Cures Act

Provisions in the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6) would reauthorize the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for three years at funding levels that represent an increase of $1.5 billion per year and provide $10 billion over the next five years in mandatory funding through an NIH Innovation Fund. In a letter to Congress, coordinated by the AAMC-led Ad Hoc Group for Medical Research, more than 100 patient and voluntary health groups, medical and scientific societies, and academic and research institutions and organizations expressed their support for H.R. 6. "This is a most welcome infusion of funding that will help revitalize and rebuild our nation's biomedical research capacity, which has eroded because of NIH losing nearly one-fourth of its budget after inflation in the past decade," the letter states.

New Motion Graphic Video Series Explains GME Payments

The AAMC has developed a series of brief motion graphic videos to provide an introduction to Medicare and graduate medical education (GME) reimbursement and explain some of the complicated regulatory processes related to how GME payments work. The series offers an overview on how the Medicare program helps reimburse resident training costs, as well as the higher patient-care costs academic medical centers incur to fulfill their missions.

13.  American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) Update, June 30, 2015:  The U.S. Department Recedes on Proposed College Ratings Plan.

 

http://cqrcengage.com/aacom/file/wH7PszsK0hD/aacom_header_bluegrey.jpg

 

USDE Recedes on Proposed College Ratings Plan

(June 30, 2015)  The U.S. Department of Education (USDE) recently announced that it will not be releasing its proposed college ratings system, but that it will now shift to a consumer-facing tool that students may use to compare undergraduate institutions, however, not rate them.  According to the USDE, this new consumer website will feature data related to cost and outcomes, which would allow viewers to compare institutions and schools.  The Department is expected to unveil this consumer-facing tool this summer.

First announced in August 2013, as part of the Administration’s goal to help make undergraduate education more affordable and available to more students across the nation, the aim of the proposed college ratings system, or the Postsecondary Institution Ratings System (PIRS), was to provide accurate, accessible, and critical data to students and families to aid them in making more informed decisions about the colleges and universities they plan to attend.  The proposed ratings system was to be linked to institutions’ receipt of Title IV federal financial aid, which would require the approval of Congress.

Initially slated by the Department to be finalized by the 2015 – 2016 academic year, the PIRS framework was released in December 2014, including nearly a dozen metrics, however lacking detailed structural information.  Although AACOM recognized that appropriate oversight is a fundamental function of the Department to ensure that federal funding is properly allocated, we expressed many concerns with the PIRS including with regard to its metrics which included a one-size-fits-all approach to comparing institutions that have different missions and serve a variety of student populations as well as concerns with the potential regulatory burden on institutions.  AACOM expressed these concerns in its most recent comments to the USDE on the proposed PIRS framework.     

AACOM will continue to work with the Department and monitor the developments of this new consumer website and will provide future updates as this process moves forward.

14.  Medicine with a Mission: Outreach, Service, Giving Back at the Trinity School of Medicine, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines      Eastern Caribbean.   

 Your Mission, Our Purpose Trinity School of Medicine

http://www.trinityschoolofmedicine.org/e-mail/images/spacer.gif

, are you someone who is

Inspired by Science and
Committed to Service?

Trinity School of Medicine students are. One of the many ways Trinity’s future doctors start gaining clinical experience right away is through community outreach in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Two major elements of this symbiosis of education and care are collaborations with the World Pediatric Project and the Rotary Village Doctor exercise. Starting in their first term, students observe procedures, interact with patients, even triage arrivals for visiting medical experts across a wide array of specialties.

The characteristic most common among Trinity students is the altruistic desire to bring healthcare to communities in need. As a medical school, Trinity is happy to harness and nurture that trait to drive quality learning and provide greater global access to care.

Medicine & Service, Intrinsically Linked

The efforts of medical students to provide community service and outreach has inherent educational value as well as community benefit. Studying abroad in St. Vincent affords our students the opportunity to do, see, and learn in settings they wouldn't have access to elsewhere. Students' community service activities are closely linked with curricular emphasis.

Village Doctor with St. Vincent Rotary

This (at least) quarterly community project spends a day in a village in need and offers free medical attention and medicines. Trinity’s students are hands-on and triage upwards of 300 patients each trip and have assisted thousands throughout the Island nation of St. Vincent.

World Pediatric Project Partnership

From student-led fund raising to assisting the surgeons and healthcare teams as they provide critical care services in St. Vincent. Trinity students aid the efforts of the WPP to provide  children in the Caribbean and Central America with state-of-the-art surgical services not otherwise available.

Trinity’s Mission, Vision, and Values 

Improve access to quality health care and enhance the health status of the residents of the communities served by our graduates.

If getting involved and giving back are reasons you chose a career in medicine, consider joining a like-minded student community, there's still time to join the September 2015 Incoming class.
