Stan,
When asked Why medicine? the prevailing response from Trinity SOM students is the desire to give back and help those in underserved healthcare areas. Students come to Trinity for hands-on experience and the ability to extend the reach of healthcare into areas of the Caribbean islands and around the world. 

Recently, 25 Trinity MD students assisted Dr. William Moskovitz, pediatric cardiologist from VCU, with his 10th annual medical mission trip to St. Vincent as part of the World Pediatric Project. Dr. Moskovitz, Dr. Bharati Datta, Head of Pediatrics at Trinity's affiliated teaching hospital, and the Trinity students together saw 110 patients in four days at Milton Cato Memorial Hospital. Many of the children seen have been patients of Dr. Moskovitz since their birth and look forward to his annual visits.[Read More]

Between mission trips and serving in the local clinics, our students dedicate energy and time to awareness and outreach program in high-need areas. From the American Medicals Students Association (AMSA) recent outreach with St. Benedict Orphanage to the much anticipated Village Doctor ProgramTrinity students seek out opportunities to give back to the community of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, their short term home away from home.

If you're passionate about service and global health, Trinity may be the right place to pursue your goals. Positions in the MD program for Fall of 2014 are still available.  Find out how we've streamlined the application process.

Primary Care Workforce Challenges Addressed at Senate Hearing

Access to primary care and the challenges associated with building that workforce were the focus of an April 9 hearing held by the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Subcommittee on Primary Health and Aging. In a letter to the subcommittee, the AAMC applauded their attention to investing in physician workforce development and highlighted the need to expand Medicare graduate medical education support. Describing physician shortage projections in both primary and specialty care as a result of the growing, aging population, the letter also stated that “Prescribing a static specialty composition or targeting increases to any singular discipline in legislation will preclude physician training efforts from adapting to varying and evolving local workforce needs.” To learn more, visit www.aamc.org/advocacy/washhigh/.


Congress Shows Support for NIH Funding

A total of 186 House members, including 23 Republicans, signed an April 4 letter supporting increased funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in fiscal year 2015. The letter was sent to the chairs and ranking members of both the full House Appropriations Committee and its Labor-HHS subcommittee requesting that NIH receive at least $32 billion in FY 2015. It noted the critical role NIH plays “in better health outcomes, job creation, education, and economic growth.” A total of 57 senators, including 11 Republicans, signed on to a similar letter asking members of the Senate Appropriations Committee and Labor-HHS subcommittee to “maintain a strong commitment” to NIH funding. While this letter did not mention a specific funding level, it urged appropriators “to consider the tremendous benefits of a sustained investment in the NIH.”


VA Research Week Begins May 19

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National VA Research Week is an annual event, which offers institutions an opportunity to educate policymakers and communities on the importance of research funding that supports the nation’s veterans, and the historic partnership between medical schools and VA hospitals.

NIH Announces New Policy on Grant Resubmission Process

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a new policy change April 17 that will allow researchers to resubmit as new a proposal that has already been reviewed and rejected for funding. The policy revises a 2009 decision that permitted applicants only one opportunity to revise and resubmit a research grant proposal that was rejected on the first try. Under the new policy, a rejected application can be subsequently resubmitted as a new application. Sally Rockey, Ph.D., NIH deputy director for extramural research noted in her blog that the community expressed concerns this policy, coupled with the reduced NIH budget, was leading to “many meritorious research ideas being deemed ineligible for resubmission.” The policy change is effective immediately and also applies to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. More information is posted on the NIH website.


2014 Update of AAMC Medical School Admissions Requirements

Updates of two key publications to help students apply and prepare for medical school are now available. The AAMC’s Medical School Admissions Requirements for the United States and Canada (formerly MSAR® Online) website is the only comprehensive resource for accurate and up-to-date information on U.S. and Canadian medical schools and B.S./M.D. programs. New this year is a summary page for each medical school that provides a snapshot of the most sought-after information, including data and deadlines, selection factors (such as MCAT® and GPA data), required coursework, class profiles, and research opportunities. The companion guide to the MSAR, The Official Guide to Medical School Admissions, helps applicants prepare for and apply to medical school and contains chapters on deciding if a career in medicine is the right choice, how to prepare for medical school during the undergraduate years, and an overview of the curriculum in medical school and M.D./Ph.D. programs. More information about both publications is available at www.aamc.org/msar.


Careers in Medicine® Spring Newsletter Now Available

The spring edition of the AAMC’s Careers in Medicine newsletter Choices includes a feature article exploring the field of cardiology as a career, and highlights a new tool to help students learn more about the characteristics of residents and determine their competitiveness in specific specialties. Choices is published quarterly and provides information about specialty choices, residency training, and other important guidance related to medical student career planning.


NBME Video Highlights Centennial Celebration

The National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) has developed a humorous and informative 10-minute video to celebrate the organization’s upcoming centennial. Actors and NBME leadership describe the organization’s origins and how it has advanced assessments for health professionals over the last 100 years to ensure standards for physician licensure in the United States. Also developed in conjunction with the 100-year anniversary is NBME U, an online collection of learning modules on topics relevant to high-quality assessments. To watch the video, visit www.nbme.org.

7.  Majority of Americans Support Birth Control Coverage Mandate:  From Medscape.com.  

Majority of Americans Support Birth Control Coverage Mandate

Laurie Barclay, MD

April 22, 2014

More than two thirds (69%) of US respondents surveyed supported mandated coverage of birth control medications by health plans, according to a research letter published online April 22 in JAMA. Female, black, and Hispanic respondents were significantly more likely to support such coverage than other respondents.

"The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires most private health insurance plans to cover contraception without a shared patient cost to improve access," write Michelle H. Moniz, MD, from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and colleagues. "However, debate continues about applying the contraception coverage mandate to public corporations that object on religious grounds; the US Supreme Court is reviewing the ACA's contraceptive coverage requirement."

The goal of this study was to examine attitudes regarding mandated coverage of birth control medications, using a cross-sectional online survey administered in November 2013 to US persons at least 18 years of age. Response rate was 61% (2124/3504), with respondents more likely to be white, to be older, and to have higher levels of education and income compared with nonrespondents.

Although most respondents (69%; 95% confidence interval [CI], 67% - 72%) supported mandated coverage of birth control medication in health plans, this percentage was significantly lower than for other benefits. Specifically, 85% of respondents supported mandated coverage for preventive services such as mammograms and colonoscopies (95% CI, 83% - 87%), 84% for recommended vaccinations (95% CI, 82% - 86%), 82% for preventive screening for diabetes and high cholesterol (95% CI, 80% - 84%), 77% for mental healthcare (95% CI, 75% - 79%), and 75% for dental and tooth care (95% CI, 73% - 77%).

Support for Birth Control Coverage Varied Among Groups

Support for mandated coverage of birth control medication was significantly higher among women, non-Hispanic blacks, Hispanics, parents living with children younger than 18 years, and adults with private or public insurance, according to multivariable regression analysis. However, education or income did not affect support for mandated coverage of birth control medication.

Compared with respondents who supported all benefits, those who supported coverage for all services except for birth control medications (7.8%; 95% CI, 6.6% - 9.3%) were more likely to be men (56% vs 41%; P = .003), older than 60 years (27% vs 10%; P < .001), and not to have children younger than 18 years of age living at home (39% vs 26%; P = .003).

"Support for mandated coverage of birth control medication was lower than for other benefits, including services that have prompted public debate (e.g. vaccination and mental health services)," the study authors write. "The small group who supported coverage for services except birth control medication included a higher proportion of persons unlikely to use such coverage."

Limitations of this survey include lack of data concerning respondents' political views, voter record, and religious beliefs and practices, and use of a cross-sectional design that may not reflect rapid changes in opinion. Use of an anonymous, online survey should have reduced social desirability bias, and poststratification weighting and lack of disclosure of survey content before the survey was administered should have reduced potential response bias.

"In this study, the majority of participants supported universal coverage of birth control medications, as well as mandated coverage of several other services," the study authors conclude. "[W]omen, black, and Hispanic respondents were more likely to support coverage of birth control medication benefits than men, older respondents, and adults without children younger than 18 years. These findings may inform the ongoing national debate around the contraceptive coverage mandate."

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars program and the University of Michigan Health System funded this study. One of the study authors serves as chief medical executive for the Michigan Department of Community Health. The other study authors reported having no other disclosures.

Dino-Killing Asteroid Impact Dwarfed by Earlier Space Rock Crash

By Mike Wall, Senior Writer   |   April 10, 2014 07:00am ET

http://www.space.com/images/site/social/share_more.png

Scientists have reconstructed a long-ago asteroid impact that makes the strike that wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago look like a playful chuck on the chin.

The enormous collision occurred 3.26 billion years ago and involved an asteroid 23 to 36 miles (37 to 58 kilometers) across — four to six times wider than the dino

-killing space rock

. The impact created a crater about 300 miles (500 km) wide and generated seismic waves far more powerful than those produced by any earthquake in recorded history, researchers said.

The asteroid impact was "far larger than anything in the last billion years," Jay Melosh of Purdue University, who was not involved in the new study, said in a statement. [Wipe Out: History's Most Mysterious Extinctions]

Researchers Norman Sleep and Donald Lowe, both of Stanford University, mapped out the details of the cataclysmic strike after studying rocks in a region of South Africa known as the Barberton greenstone belt.

The space rock probably hit far away from the Barberton formation, in a location that researchers may never find. But it left its imprint on the South African rocks and on the entire Earth, disrupting the planet's crust and possibly spurring a transition from an early tectonic regime to the more modern plate-tectonic system that prevails today, researchers said.

"This is providing significant support for the idea that the impact may have been responsible for this major shift in tectonics," said UCLA geologist Frank Kyte, who was not a member of the study team.

The mammoth collision likely posed a severe challenge for life on Earth, which first evolved about 3.8 billion years ago. The sky would have filled with dust and become incredibly hot, while the upper layers of the ocean would have boiled, researchers said.

The asteroid impact could have wiped out a large percentage of the planet's lifeforms, vacating niches that the survivors evolved to fill.

"We are trying to understand the forces that shaped our planet early in its evolution and the environments in which life evolved," Lowe said.

While incredibly dramatic, this enormous smashup was probably far from unique. Rather, it was one of many such strikes that occurred during a period called the Late Heavy Bombardment, which began around four billion years ago and lasted for perhaps one billion years.

That bombardment period also affected other bodies in the inner solar system, blasting huge holes into Mars, Venus, Mercury and Earth's moon.

The new study has been accepted for publication in the journal Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems.
