Maybe you can't walk the halls of the Capitol. But our message can.

AACOM Action Alert

Urge Your Representative to Support The Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act of 2012!

 

Representative Joseph Crowley (D-NY) has recently introduced The Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act of 2012, H.R. 6562, a bill which would increase the number of Medicare graduate medical education (GME) residency slots by 3,000 each year, totaling approximately 15,000 additional slots over the next five years. 

The American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM) has released a press statement in strong support of this legislation; given current and projected physician workforce shortages, such legislation is critical to ensure that Medicare-funded GME residency positions are available to train the nation’s future physicians.

As physician workforce shortages continue to grow, further limiting access to patient care, AACOM calls on you to urge your Representatives to increase GME NOW!   Please contact your Representative to ask that he/she become a co-sponsor of this important legislation, or to thank Representative Crowley for his leadership and support.  When you "Take Action" above and enter your zip code, you will be directed to customizable email text.

KSUCPM Ribbon-Tying Ceremony

On Wednesday, August 8th, a very special ribbon-tying event was held to symbolize the joining of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine with Kent State University.

 

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the university and the new college, as well as local officials and media representatives, were invited to attend the event.   

 

As opposed to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the event was a ribbon tying, signifying the two institutions - Kent State and the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine - coming together to become the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine.

The event began with opening remarks, followed immediately by a luncheon reception and facility tours. 

 

The College of Podiatric Medicine officially became a part of Kent State on July 1st in a friendly acquisition that offers expanded academic options for podiatry students, including strategic partnerships with other Kent State colleges.

KSUCPM Welcomes the Class of 2016 with Annual
 
White Coat Ceremony

     

White Coat Class of 2016  

This summer, the Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine welcomed 127 first-year students into the class of 2016 with the annual White Coat Ceremony.  The White Coat Ceremony is a formal event that symbolizes new podiatry students being welcomed into a community of physicians.  The ceremony also represents the beginning of a student's journey to becoming a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine.

  

This year's ceremony was significant for many reasons.  It was the first White Coat event under the newly formed KSUCPM as a result of the merger between Kent State University and the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine.  Additionally, the Class of 2016 will not only represent the first full four-year graduating class from KSUCPM, but their class will mark the 100 year anniversary of the founding of the original Ohio College of Chiropody in 1916 (later named the Ohio College of Podiatry and then Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine).

 

Dr. Melissa Lockwood, DPM (Class of 2005) served as a guest speaker and provided the Class of 2016 with words of wisdom, motivation, and practical advice for future success.

 

Faculty and staff attended this event, along with students' families and friends. A light reception was held following the ceremony at the KSUCPM campus.

• Supreme Court Explores Consideration of Race in Admissions
• Webinars Help Attendees Optimize Annual Meeting Experience
• Summit Focuses on Reducing Health Disparities for LGBT Community
• NIH Announces Grant Policy Under Continuing Resolution
• AAMC Members Awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry
• On the Move



Supreme Court Explores Consideration of Race in Admissions

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments Oct. 10 in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, which challenges the university’s consideration of race in undergraduate admissions.  During the oral arguments, justices pressed counsel from both parties, as well as the solicitor general, on the necessity and specific goals of the university’s admissions process.  While some justices expressed skepticism about the university’s approach, Justice Stephen Breyer noted that there are many institutions of higher education relying on the court’s 2003 Grutter v. Bollinger precedent, which allows the consideration of race as one of many factors in an individualized admissions process.


In August, the AAMC filed a joint amicus brief  urging the court to preserve Grutter to ensure a diverse, culturally competent health professional workforce to address the critical health needs of an increasingly diverse nation.  A decision in the case is expected spring 2013.  To read more about last week’s oral arguments, visit https://www.aamc.org/advocacy/washhigh/.


Webinars Help Attendees Optimize Annual Meeting Experience

With more than 4,000 attendees, hundreds of informative sessions, and the chance to network with colleagues about the future of academic medicine and health care, the 2012 AAMC Annual Meeting offers a wealth of information and opportunity.  To help registrants make the most of their experience, the AAMC will offer two Webinars prior to the November meeting.  An Oct. 25 Webinar will lend tips and insight into how to contribute to the conversation, connect with other stakeholders, and bring new ideas back to institutions.  On Oct. 24, a Webinar tailored to first-time attendees will present a brief overview of the AAMC’s history, structure, and programs.  AAMC’s Meetings staff also will share tips for navigating the San Francisco meeting.


For those unable to attend, both Webinars will be recorded and posted at www.aamc.org/annualmeeting by Oct. 26.  Questions should be addressed to annmeet@aamc.org.


Summit Focuses on Reducing Health Disparities for LGBT Community

The AAMC will host a summit at this year’s annual meeting to explore ways to reduce health disparities for the LGBT community.  Sessions will address competencies, research, curriculum development, support systems, and resources for improving LGBT health and strategies for institutions seeking to implement new tactics to address the health needs of the community.  The summit will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 6, from 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.  This summit is included in the full annual meeting registration.  A single-day registration option is also available.  For more information, send e-mail to Juan Amador at jamador@aamc.org.


NIH Announces Grant Policy Under Continuing Resolution

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will issue up to 90 percent of previously committed funding for non-competing grants awards while operating under the continuing resolution passed in September, according to an Oct. 11 agency notice.  The practice is consistent with the continuing resolutions of FY 2006-2012.  The notice states that, “Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after our FY 2013 appropriations are enacted, but NIH expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period.”


AAMC Members Awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry 

Robert Lefkowitz, M.D., professor at Duke University Medical Center and investigator at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and Brian Kobilka, M.D., professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, have been awarded the 2012 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their “studies of G-protein-coupled receptors.”   Lefkowitz is a past recipient of the  AAMC Award for Distinguished Research in the Biomedical Sciences (known in 1990 as the Baxter Award).

Steven T. DeKosky, M.D., has announced he will step down as vice president and dean of the University of Virginia School of Medicine at the conclusion of his five-year term on July 31, 2013.

Samuel Merritt University Doctor of Physical Therapy Program Receives $2.6 Million Federal Grant for Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students

 

Greetings!

 

Samuel Merritt University is pleased to announce that we received a grant for $2.6 million to support diversity among the students in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. 

 

The Scholarships Awarded Under the Grant:
The grant of $650,000 per year over four years is from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) a division of the US Department of Health and Human Services.  The grant is for the Scholarships for Disadvantaged Students (SDS) program.  Under this program, the University will award $15,000 per year to each recipient, the maximum amount allowed by the program.  New and incoming students are eligible to receive this scholarship.   Students who remain in good standing will continue to receive priority for funding in each year they are successfully enrolled in the program.  The University will be able to award 43 scholarships per year to new and continuing students under this program.  (Please see "Important Information" below.)

 

Eligibility Requirements
Students must meet the admission requirements for the program. 

 

Students who are eligible for these scholarships will be able to show that he/she either:

  • Comes from an educationally disadvantaged background.  Examples include, but are not limited to
  • First generation in family to attend college
  • Graduate of a high school in which a lower percentage of students go on to college
  • Graduate of a high school with a high percentage of students on free or reduced price lunches.

OR

  • Comes from a family with a low income.  Because the DPT program is a graduate program students who are at least 24 years old are considered independent and it is their personal income that is the basis for meeting this criteria.

Under this grant program, minority status, in itself, is not a factor in determining if a student is disadvantaged.  Students who are from underrepresented minorities will receive stronger consideration for these scholarships because Samuel Merritt University is committed to increasing the number of physical therapists who are from underrepresented minorities in the profession.

 

Important Information
The University's continued receipt of these scholarships is contingent on our ability to meet the program requirements and continued federal funding.  HRSA makes that determination each year.  The University firmly believes we will meet these requirements and the program will continue through the 2015-2016 academic year.  However, these awards cannot be guaranteed.

Latin America Programs Highlight Government Approaches to Healthcare

 

About CFHI:

 

Child Family Health International (CFHI), a United Nations recognized nonprofit, runs socially responsible Global Health Education Programs for students of all levels focused on healthcare, medicine, and related fields. CFHI is a global health ethics leader and recently, together with the Forum on Education Abroad, set standards for undergraduate health programs abroad.

CFHI programs allow students to experience community approaches to healthcare in different countries, and our academic partnerships with schools facilitate closer collaboration with CFHI and host communities. Below are two programs featuring Mexico and Ecuador's unique approaches to healthcare provision and education.

 

Global Health in Mexico

http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs134/1105132857422/img/88.jpgMexico's three pronged insurance scheme can be seen firsthand in CFHI's

Realities of Health Access and Inequities program.  CFHI's program allows an insider view of the successes and challenges of Mexico's nationalized insurance plans.  These include benefits with no deductibles and free medicine, yet sometimes limited coverage of pre-existing conditions and availability of specific medications.  While taking Spanish language classes and living with homestay families, CFHI students gain insight into what Mexico's approach to universal coverage looks like in this country of over 100 million people.

 

Global Health in Ecuador

http://ih.constantcontact.com/fs134/1105132857422/img/89.jpgEcuador's constitution guarantees sexual and reproductive health rights for all citizens.  To comply with this initiative, government has given responsibility of advancing sexual and reproductive health education to local nonprofits.  Sexual Health as a Human Right: Ecuador's Unique Model, is unique in that it offers a public health focus appropriate for students from a variety of majors. This program places participants with nonprofits to learn about project management and develop skills to teach and assist on education surrounding sexual and reproductive health issues.

 

CFHI's Implementing Universal Healthcare from the Highlands to the Coast of Ecuador places participants in clinical facilities in Quito as well as the coastal town of Santa Elena to identify differences between urban and rural health systems. This program also cultivates an understanding of institutional barriers and major public health issues to providing free care to all inhabitants within this Ecuadorian province.
