Focus on the MD Curriculum

Synthesis and Application Modules (SAM)

 

During Synthesis and Application Modules (SAM), first-, second- and now third-year medical students review key concepts from their coursework and are assessed on their knowledge. In previous years, students participated in simulation exercises and clinical skills sessions, but in 2014 faculty members introduced the use of tablets into the learning module.


In recent SAM week sessions for third-year students, for example, groups of 10 learners clustered around iPads to mark abnormalities in the retina of a diabetic patient. After completing the task, the images were shared in a large class discussion.


"SAM provides repetition and application of materials and allows students to learn in a deep and long-lasting way," said Pat Garcia, MD, MPH, director of the first phase of the medical school curriculum and professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology-Maternal Fetal Medicine. "Medical students are faced with an enormous amount of material and there is no way for them to be able to memorize everything. Medical school for them is about learning to access and apply medical information."


SAM weeks launched in the fall of 2012 with the new medical school curriculum, which is designed to create a more integrated educational environment, aligning classroom instruction with relevant, hands-on clinical experiences.


"This is the first time we've done one of these modules during the third year and it's the first time we've brought back medical students from all the clerkships for a week," said David Salzman, MD, MEd, assistant professor in Emergency Medicine. "It gives them the opportunity to get back together to synthesize, integrate and apply a lot of the materials they learned in the basic sciences in the first two years."


As director of the third phase of the new medical school curriculum and director of simulation for undergraduate medical education, Dr. Salzman designs innovative ways to involve medical students in the learning process. He designed the iPad activity to complement information learned in the clerkships.


"We knew students would be at different stages of their learning at different points in time. So we try to incorporate as many concepts from different clerkships," he said.


In addition to looking at the pathology of the eye, students worked through questions such as creating a concept map of an initial evaluation of a diabetic patient and observing the effects of diabetes on the heart. Once the assignments were submitted, Dr. Salzman controlled the screens on the iPads and shared select images across all devices.


"By sharing different groups' thought processes and how they approached the questions, they could compare and contrast their group's thinking with other groups," he explained.


Salzman added, "I think about the progression the medical students make from the beginning of medical school and what we want the students to be able to do and where we want them to be at the end of four years. I think it's a chance to use tools like iPads to identify opportunities where the students can prepare for the future."

 

Admissions Q&A

 

http://img.constantcontact.com/letters/images/1101116784221/S.gif

 

Q: How many Feinberg faculty members are there and what is the faculty-to-student ratio?

A: Feinberg offers a premier medical education and top-notch research programs in large part because of the expertise, experience, and dedication of its faculty. Numbering more than 3,500, the medical school's faculty roster includes some of the best minds and hearts in medicine and biomedical research. Many have gained national and international prominence. Full-time or part-time faculty who also conduct research teach much of the core material in our clinical clerkships. Contributed services faculty members, who are in private practices, teach many of the clinical courses. Feinberg students enjoy a 2.5:1 faculty-to-student ratio.

Q: Are there faculty advisors at the Feinberg School? 
A: Each specialty area department has assigned a faculty member to serve as a career advising coordinator. Specialty coordinators assign advisors from their departments to those students seeking career advice and guidance in that particular field. Students are encouraged to contact the specialty area career advising coordinator directly to request an advisor.


The dean of Student Programs and the director of Academic and Career Counseling serve as academic and career advisors for Feinberg medical students. Also, during the M1 year, each student is assigned to a "college" which is headed by a faculty mentor. Faculty has an open-door policy: Most medical students identify several faculty who serve as informal mentors during their years at Feinberg. Near the middle of their third year, students pick a clinical faculty member who serves as their personal career advisor; their role is to provide guidance through the selection of a specialty and residency program application.

Choosing the Feinberg School of Medicine  

 

http://img.constantcontact.com/letters/images/1101116784221/S.gif

 

http://files.ctctcdn.com/6e937abd001/7371507a-7194-41bb-95cd-f8a87349504e.jpgShobhit Minhas, a fourth-year medical student, offers his insights about Feinberg and medical school in general. 


Why did you choose the Feinberg School of Medicine? 

The big thing that separates Feinberg from other top medical schools is the location. Chicago can't be beat. We're in the heart of one of the best cities in the country. I also think the people drew me to Feinberg. When I was interviewing, I thought the students and the faculty here were the most approachable and down-to-earth. They had a good work-life balance, more so than I saw at any other place.


I don't think every place is this friendly and open to students. Attendings and residents are busy, but not too busy to help out and be considerate to the medical students. Every time I have a question I get an answer within a day.


The only negative I see is the cost of living. But that's the cost of being in a good city, in a good location. To this day, I think that's the only negative.


What would you tell a future student about medical school?
Medical school changes you. It matures you. College is all about you. In medical school, especially when you get to the wards, the experience becomes less about you and more about the patients that you're taking care of. During your clinical rotations, your number one job all day is to make sure nothing happens to the patient. You transition from thinking about 'How do I get what I want?' to 'How do I make sure nothing happens to the patient?' You become a better team player.

Match Day Success but Concerns Remain About Physician Workforce Shortages

Nearly 35,000 U.S. and international students applied for one of the more than 27,000 first-year residency positions offered in this year's Main Residency Match. Despite the success of this year's Match, AAMC President and CEO Darrell G. Kirch, MD, released a statement expressing concern about the need for additional residency positions, given that the United States faces a significant shortage of between 46,000 and 90,000 physicians by 2025.

New AAMC Cultural Competence Resource for Researchers and Educators

As part of a growing collection of resources to help guide cultural competence in curriculum development, the AAMC recently released Assessing Change: Evaluating Cultural Competence Education and Training. The guide will help medical schools find and leverage prior studies that may provide the best match for an institution's cultural competence education needs. It also will assist educators and researchers in measuring facets of cultural competence using published assessment tools and provide sample evaluation frameworks. An AAMC-commissioned expert panel reviewed cultural competence studies and identified deficits in published literature and strategies to support future work in this area.

Clinical Care Innovation Challenge Winners Announced

The AAMC has selected 10 awardees for the Clinical Care Innovation Challenge initiative. The initiative recognizes AAMC-member medical schools and teaching hospitals that have implemented or are developing programs to address clinical care innovations that integrate education and research to improve value and quality. Winning proposals were accepted in key areas, including innovations in new models of care delivery, payment, primary care delivery, and graduate medical education training. All awardees will be recognized at the AAMC's 2015 Integrating Quality Meeting: Improving Value through Clinical Transformation, Education, and Science, on June 11-12 in Rosemont, Ill. Registration and meeting details will be available in early April.

Medical Students' Perceptions Change Regarding Drug Company Interactions

In 2012, significantly more third-year medical students were skeptical about interactions with pharmaceutical companies compared with nearly a decade earlier, according to a new study published online ahead-of-print in Academic Medicine. In Changes in Medical Students' Exposure to and Attitudes About Drug Company Interactions from 2003 to 2012: A Multi-Institutional Follow-up Survey, the authors examined survey results from more than 1,200 students at eight U.S. medical schools. The authors found that students in 2012 had far less interaction with pharmaceutical representatives than in 2003, and nearly half (49.2 percent) of respondents in 2012 preferred a residency that restricted these interactions.

RWJF Releases Qualitative Report on Interprofessional Collaboration

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) recently issued a report that helps hospitals assess the potential benefits of interprofessional collaboration and offers a guide for implementation. Lessons From the Field: Promising Interprofessional Collaboration Practices profiles the experiences of more than 20 hospitals and community health centers in the United States that have achieved better patient outcomes. One of the key findings from the report suggests that institutions create a level playing field that enables team members to work at the top of their licenses.

9.  The Student National Dental Association chapter at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry is pleased to be able to offer their “Impressions” program again this year.  This year’s date is Saturday, April 25. 

Good day everyone,

 

The Student National Dental Association chapter at the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry is pleased to be able to offer their “Impressions” program again this year.  This year’s date is Saturday, April 25 in Memphis. Attached are documents describing the day and registration materials. Registration deadline is April 7.  

 

We hope some of your students will be able to attend. We are looking for students who are interested in health care as a career but are uncertain as to which area. Dentistry is a wonderful profession with zero unemployment and is currently ranks as the #1 Profession in the United States (for the second time in the last three years).

 

Last year there was some confusion about the target audience. If a student has taken the Dental Admissions Test (DAT) or has toured our College, there is no need for them to attend as they have already explored the field. We are looking for students who are members of under-represented groups seeking information about various health care fields.

 

If I can provide further information, please let me know.

 

Sincerely,

 

J. S. Covington
