News from the Association of American Medical Colleges

October 26, 2015

Medical School Applicants, Enrollees Reach New Highs

The number of students enrolling in the nation's medical schools has increased 25 percent since 2002, reaching an all-time high of 20,630 this year, according to data released by the AAMC. In addition, the total number of applicants to medical school rose by 6.2 percent to 52,550, exactly double the percentage increase from the previous year. First-time applicants—an important indicator of interest in medicine—increased by 4.8 percent to 38,460. "The nation's medical schools are creating innovative education and training programs to prepare tomorrow's doctors to meet the challenges of the changing health care environment," said AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, MD. "This dynamic landscape is leading to a record number of students applying to and enrolling in medical school."

Analysis in Brief Explores Trends of U.S. Primary Care Workforce

A new Analysis in Brief reviews the trends of primary care physicians who graduated from LCME-accredited U.S. medical schools over past decades. Focusing on factors including specialties, gender, race, and ethnicity differences, results show that from 1980 to 1992, the annual number of MD physicians who graduated from medical schools and went on to practice primary care was around 4,000. Between 1993 and 1999, the numbers increased, but since 2002, numbers have dropped below 4,000. The report found that black, American Indian or Alaska Native, and Latino physicians are more consistently practicing primary care than their Asian and white physician counterparts.

AAMC Offers Development Opportunity for Student Affairs Professionals

To enhance and address professional development practices and needs of individuals in a student advocacy role at the nation's medical schools and teaching hospitals, the AAMC Group on Student Affairs has developed a professional development initiative. The program provides high-value learning, professional development resources and tools, and a community of practice, all in alignment with LCME standards.

VA's Million Veteran Program Reaches Milestone

The Million Veteran Program (MVP) of the Department of Veterans Affairs has enrolled its 400,000th veteran volunteer, putting it on track to become one of the world's largest medical databases, linking genetic, clinical, lifestyle, and military-exposure information. Data collected through MVP are available to researchers for use in approved studies, including posttraumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, substance use disorders, and heart and kidney disease. MVP, the largest database of its type in the United States, is part of the Precision Medicine Initiative announced by President Obama earlier this year.

On the Move

Julie Creamer has been named president of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and Howard Chrisman, MD, has been named president of Northwestern Medical Group (NMG), effective Oct. 12. Creamer most recently served as senior vice president of administration for Northwestern Memorial Healthcare and chief transformation executive for NMG. Chrisman most recently served as vice president of clinical operations for NMG.

 

3.  The Watson School of Biological Sciences, the graduate program at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, has developed an innovative Ph.D. curriculum that takes advantage of the unique environment and extensive resources offered by the Laboratory.   

http://cshlpress.org/testeml/ws.jpg

Dear Colleague,

The Watson School of Biological Sciences is the graduate program at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. We have developed an innovative Ph.D. curriculum that takes advantage of the unique environment and extensive resources offered by the Laboratory.

The program is designed for students to complete their studies in 4-5 years. To this end they receive extensive mentoring throughout, with an academic as well as a research mentor, and complete their course work, rotations and qualifying exam within the first year. All students are fully funded by the school – stipends, tuition and research costs – giving them the freedom to join any lab, irrespective of whether that lab has other funding for them. In addition they receive subsidized housing and food, and full health benefits.

For more information about the CSHL graduate school and the application process, as well as an up-to-date list of our faculty and their research interests, and information about the success of our alumni, please visit our website at www.cshl.edu/gradschool. The deadline for completed applications is December 1, 2015.

Sincerely,

Watson School of Biological Sciences

Legislation and Tobacco Control


Gustavo Torrez  will review Arkansas' challenges and victories in creating comprehensive tobacco-free environments and will discuss lessons learned from states around the country including:

The City of New Orleans and their recent legislative win; Mississippi's multiple city ordinances; how Hawaii increased the age limit on tobacco sales to 21 years, and others.

 

Gustavo Torrez has been involved in the tobacco control movement for the past 19 years. He began his work in tobacco control as a youth advocate in California and continued his career in the field in Boston, where he was a Program Manager with Fenway Community Health and the National Network for LGBT Health Equity, one of the CDC-funded priority population networks. 

 

 As a young adult Gustavo served on Legacy's National Speaker's Bureau and National Activism Council, and in 2012 he was recognized for his efforts with a Trailblazers Award for outstanding and continuous leadership in the tobacco control movement by Legacy. Currently, Gustavo is the Associate Director of Youth Advocacy for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.

5.  Research Technologist (entry level) position available at an oncology lab at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

From Dr. Ogilvie:

Good morning! I am reaching out because we have an open Research Technologist position (entry level) and I was wondering if you had anyone in mind (e.g. recent grad) that you think would be a good candidate. I have recently switched labs at St. Jude and I am now in Oncology in the lab of Dr. Charles Roberts. His research focuses on epigenetic regulation of cancer and we are looking for candidates who are excited about molecular and cellular biology of cancer. If you have any candidates in mind could you please ask them to either contact me directly or apply to the position at www.Stjude.org ? The position number is 34850. Thank you so much!

Sincerely,

Stacy
