AAMC Recognizes 70-year Partnership Between Veterans Affairs, Academic Medicine

This month marks the 70th anniversary of the historic partnership between the Department of Veterans Affairs and the academic medicine community. "Through this historic collaboration, the VA has become the largest single provider of medical training in the country, where more than 40,000 residents and 20,000 medical students receive clinical training each year," said Darrell G. Kirch, AAMC president and CEO, in a statement. For more information, visit https://www.aamc.org/initiatives/vahealthcare.

Briefing Explores How Medical Schools and Teaching Hospitals Are Addressing the Opioid Epidemic

As part of their ongoing commitment to address the current opioid epidemic, medical schools and teaching hospitals are developing innovative curricula and teaching methods on pain management and strategies to prevent, assess, and treat substance abuse, as well as advancing clinical care combating opioid dependence. At an AAMC-hosted congressional briefing last week, an expert panel discussed how these institutions are training the next generation of physicians to combat this public health crisis. The briefing was moderated by Atul Grover, MD, PhD, AAMC chief public policy officer, and featured presentations from Terence Flotte, MD, University of Massachusetts Medical School; Bradley Allen, MD, PhD, Indiana University School of Medicine; and Alison Holmes, MD, MPH, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth.

Article Examines Race and Bias from the Classroom to the Exam Room

An increasing number of medical schools offer curricula focused on helping students acknowledge and become comfortable talking about unconscious bias, according to a Reporter article highlighting the efforts under way in the academic medicine community to address racial disparity and bias in health care. Part of a year-long series on the social determinants of health, the article explores these programs and how they help improve students' awareness of health care disparities and teach qualitative methods of countering bias in interactions between doctors and patients.

AHRQ Updates Online Resource for Patient Safety News, Research

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently updated its online content for patient safety news by merging AHRQ Patient Safety Network (PSNet) and AHRQ Morbidity and Mortality Rounds on the Web (WebM&M). The new site, PSNet, combines content from both sites—including PSNet's Patient Safety Primers and WebM&M's Cases and Commentaries and Perspectives on Safety—to provide a one-stop shop for patient safety news, research, and expert commentary. PSNet also publishes weekly updates on patient safety literature, tools, and meetings.

In Memoriam: Richard "Buz" Cooper, MD

Richard "Buz" Cooper, MD, former dean of the Medical College of Wisconsin, died Jan. 15 at the age of 79. A respected voice in health policy, and one of the first to contend that the country faced a physician shortage, Cooper began his career at the National Cancer Institute before joining the University of Pennsylvania, where he founded and directed the school's cancer center. He later founded and served as director of the Medical College of Wisconsin's Health Policy Institute (now the Institute for Health and Society).

Global Impact Corps: Global Health Volunteer Abroad Opportunity
http://www.uniteforsight.org/volunteer-abroad


Join Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps for a hands-on, immersive and unique global health experience. A transformative volunteer abroad experience for students and professionals, Unite For Sight is renowned as the highest quality global health immersion and volunteer abroad program worldwide. Unite For Sight prides itself on offering the best global health experience for our volunteers, coupled with the highest quality healthcare delivery programs with our local doctor partners.

The Unite For Sight Experience: New 5-minute Video

Locations of Year-Round Health Care Delivery: Ghana, Honduras, and India
(volunteer for 7 days, 15 days, 20 days, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 10 weeks, or more)

What do Global Impact Fellows do? Unite For Sight’s Global Impact Corps Program is an immersive global health experience for students and professionals who are interested in public health, international development, medicine, or social entrepreneurship. Fellows participate with and learn from Unite For Sight's talented local partner doctors who have provided care to 1.9 million patients living in poverty, including more than 95,000 sight-restoring surgeries. Fellows assist with patient education, visual acuity testing, patient intake, distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local doctors, and other important support tasks.  They also have the opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local doctors.  Additionally, fellows may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an optional program for those interested in pursuing research. For example, we currently have fellows pursuing research studies about medication management, the use of visual resources for patient education, traditional medicine practices, and patient barriers to eye care.

Unite For Sight is the only organization in the world that:

  • is a healthcare delivery organization that also offers immersive global health education opportunities for students and professionals;
  • uses 100% of all donations and funds submitted to directly provide care for patients who are otherwise unable to access or afford care;
  • directly teaches the importance of supporting and assisting local professionals in their own social ventures to eliminate disparities in their communities and countries;
  • offers an opportunity to learn from local medical professionals about effective strategies to reach the hardest-to-reach patients in villages, slums, and refugee camps;
  • develops comprehensive training materials in cultural competency, ethics, and global health best practices to prepare its volunteers for a high-impact immersive experience.

Karin Ulstrup, MD, (far left) met her Class of 2017 college during Arrival Week. She is also the lead mentor for the Mary Thompson Society.

Beyond the academics of the medical degree program, our students are encouraged to engage and network with each other as well as faculty and the community. During Arrival Week, students are welcomed into the Feinberg community through two groups, colleges and societies.


Each medical school class is divided into four colleges, providing each student with a familiar social and academic community that lasts throughout medical school. Each college has a dedicated college mentor, an experienced clinician who teaches and advises the college throughout the four years of the MD curriculum.


Feinberg's four medical student societies link the colleges across medical school classes.

Each society includes one college from each medical school class year, therefore creating a learning community that connects students into a broad network of faculty and other students with varying interests and levels of experience.


Outside of the colleges and societies, our students also participate in a number of student groups based on social and academic interests, career goals and more.

Why did I Choose Feinberg?

 

http://files.ctctcdn.com/6e937abd001/1cf54a98-4378-4076-95b9-2ad738371aab.png

Sean Posada is a first-year medical student.  

After attending last year's Second Look, an event held for accepted students,first-year medical student Sean Posada knew he wanted to attend Feinberg. He is also enrolled in the Master of Arts in Medical Humanities and Bioethics program.

 

Why did you choose Feinberg?

I chose Feinberg because of the people. When I was here during Second Look, I liked the amount of diversity and charisma from the students.

 

All my classmates are gifted and bright individuals. They are so curious and always inquiring about things. It's that drive that makes you the best you can be. The faculty members here are really open to conversations and are very approachable.

 

What is your favorite part of the curriculum?

The clinical aspect of it. The fact that you get exposure to patients within the first week of being here, that meant a lot to me because I came into medicine to work with patients and help them feel better about their situation and treat them.

 

What has been your biggest challenge?

Adjusting to a new study method. I used to be a procrastinator. So I've adjusted my learning style and have several different strategies to work with the medical school curriculum since it is so fast paced and intense.

 

It also was very good to know that the Office of Diversity offers support if I need it.  They are open to listening to any concerns you have and they give the opportunity to interact with other students from diverse backgrounds. I can learn how other students cope with the stresses of medical school and how they transitioned from an undergraduate to graduate setting.

Admissions Q&A

 

When do Feinberg students begin working with patients and learning clinical skills?

From the beginning of Phase 1 - the first 20 months of Feinberg's medical school curriculum - all students spend one half day every other week learning and practicing clinical skills.
 

Why do Feinberg students spend less time in lecture than students at other schools?

The philosophy at Feinberg favors active and inquiry-driven learning over the more passive learning style typical of the large lecture-hall format. Students spend much of their contact hours in small group sessions, especially Problem-Based Learning, Health & Society and Professional Development.

10.  The University of Alabama – Birmingham offers two opportunities for Summer 2016.  

I would like to make you aware of two exciting opportunities for your undergraduate students – the Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program 2016, and the Preparation for Graduate and Medical Education (PARAdiGM) 2016. Both of these programs introduce outstanding undergraduates to the exciting career options of being a scientific investigator while also being a practicing physician. Eligible students may apply to both programs.

 

These two eight week programs are held concurrently from June 2-July 29, 2016. Students will receive stipends and free on-campus housing but will be responsible for their own meals, for travel to and from Birmingham, and other expenses. 

 

Students in both programs will be introduced to the concept of scientific research, principles of scientific experimentation, the proper methods of data analysis, the interpretation, presentation, and translational applications of research results, and to clinicians who practice at academic medical centers.

 

Students can learn more about SIBS at www.uab.edu/sibs, about PARAdiGM at http://www.uab.edu/medicine/paradigm/ or by contacting me at rlorenz@mcuab.edu

 

Applications must be submitted online and the deadline is February 15, 2016.

 

Sincerely,

Knowledge that will change your world

Summer in Biomedical Sciences (SIBS) Undergraduate Research Program http://www.uab.edu/medicine/sibs/

Our goal in offering this fellowship is to give talented undergraduate students the opportunity to experience the challenges and rewards of intensive, hypothesis-drive laboratory research. This experience should help students make well informed decisions about future career plans.  Previous research experience is not required. We especially welcome applications from students who are interested in research as a potential career, including students interested in PhD and MD/PhD programs. We accept fifteen students per summer into this program. We expect applicants to SIBS to have completed at least their sophomore year of undergraduate coursework. We anticipate that successful candidates will typically demonstrate grade point averages of 3.0 (“B”) or higher, especially in science, math, and related areas. 

 

Preparation for Graduate and Medical Education (PARAdiGM) http://www.uab.edu/medicine/paradigm/

The PARAdiGM program focuses on undergraduates from diverse and underrepresented minority backgrounds, and offers the opportunity to participate in the program for two summers. In addition to working in the laboratory of a faculty mentor with an actively funded biomedical research program, PARAdiGM participants will learn about careers in academic medical centers (AMCs) by shadowing clinician-investigators in their clinics, as well as on in-patient rounds. At the end of the first summer in the program, the students will write an abstract and participate in both a local and national poster presentation of their research results. The students will also receive instruction in essay writing, MCAT preparation, and critical career skills. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide undergraduate students with an understanding and appreciation of the biomedical research process so as to encourage them to pursue careers studying patients and their diseases after further postgraduate training in graduate and medical education. Previous research experience is not required in order to apply.  The PARAdiGM program is especially useful for students who do not have local access to biomedical research and/or academic physician-scientist role models.
