The AAMC Seeks Your Feedback!

The AAMC is seeking feedback from STAT readers. Please click here to take a 5- to 10-minute survey that will allow us to explore readers' opinions about content and delivery methods they need to stay informed about issues facing the academic medicine community.

Preparing the Physician and Physician-Scientist for the 21st Century

Since the launch of the Optimizing Graduate Medical Education initiative in 2015, AAMC staff and constituents have been focusing on three areas: investing in future physicians; optimizing the environment for learning, care, and discovery; and preparing physicians and physician-scientists for the evolving demands of 21st-century health care. A webinar on Mar. 8 with John Prescott, MD, AAMC chief academic officer, and Janis Orlowski, MD, MACP, AAMC chief health care officer, will report on these efforts, with a focus on preparing the physician and physician-scientist for the 21st century.

New Global Health Education Opportunities for Medical Students

A new effort between the AAMC's Global Health Learning Opportunities (GHLO®) Collaborative and Child Family Health International (CFHI) will provide new learning opportunities for medical students. Consisting of a network of institutions, GHLO facilitates global mobility for medical and public health students pursuing electives outside their home countries. Through this program, GHLO has expanded its elective opportunities to include eight CFHI sites in sub-Saharan Africa, including Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, and Tanzania.

Webinar Highlights CDC Epidemic Intelligence Service Program for Physicians

On Mar. 9, the AAMC will host a free webinar that explores the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help students, residents, faculty, and practicing physicians understand the value of a hands-on public health experience and how it complements clinical skills. Presenters from EIS will talk about their roles in responding to disease outbreaks such as the Zika virus and historic public health threats such as smallpox. Registration is required.

AAMC Wins Awards for Advocacy Campaign, New Student and Resident Website

The AAMC and Blue State Digital received a Reed Award for "Best Use of Display Advertising" from Campaigns & Elections for the American Doctor Shortage campaign, part of the AAMC Action grassroots advocacy program. The Reed Awards recognize excellence in campaign management, political consulting, and political design. Additionally, the AAMC, with Celerity, has been named a Gold Winner in the "Associations" category of the 2016 AVA Digital Awards for the redesign of the student and resident section of AAMC.org. The international competition recognizes superior industry work across several facets of digital communication, including web, television, and social media.

Data Snapshot Examines Underrepresented Minority Women in Academic Medicine

Ensuring that institutions recognize multiple identities is pivotal to establishing a diverse and inclusive medical education community. A recent Diversity Data Snapshot uses AAMC data on medical school applicants, students, faculty, and leadership to provide an overview of the disparity women of color, particularly underrepresented minority women, experience in medical education and academic medicine.

On the Move

Patrice Delafontaine, MD, has been reappointed as dean of the University of Missouri School of Medicine, effective immediately. He was previously named dean in 2014 and stepped down last fall.

Laurie H. Glimcher, MD, has been named the next president and CEO of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. She is currently the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Dean of the Medical College at Weill Cornell Medicine, and will depart on Dec. 31, 2016, after five years of leading the institution. Edward J. Benz Jr., MD, current president of Dana-Farber, will remain in the role until Glimcher arrives in January 2017.

Do your students question conventional thinking? Are they ready to answer the call for change in healthcare?

 

At Thomas Jefferson University, we know that students don't only learn how to care for patients from textbooks. They learn by doing. By immersing themselves in their community and learning from the very patients they will one day treat.

 

We're training a new generation of healthcare professionals. A generation that collaborates with peers, embraces technology and always puts the patient first. One that looks for better ways to care, seeks innovative solutions, and succeeds through communication. We're teaching a new way of providing care, and health care will never be the same.

 

Your students can learn more about us at our Open House on March 19 at 9 a.m. at Thomas Jefferson University's campus in center city Philadelphia.

Get the details and register for this event at Jefferson.edu/SpringOpenHouse.

BECAUSE I DON'T JUST LOVE SCIENCE. 

I LOVE LIFE.

I AM THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE."

8.  Marshall University School of Pharmacy (Huntington, WV) announces its Spring Preview Day on Saturday, April 9, 2016.   

I wanted to e-mail quickly and invite you and your students to the Marshall University School of Pharmacy Spring Preview Day on Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration is required and attendees may bring up to two additional guests.

Click to Register
(If you’d like to provide the link to your students directly, it is: http://pharmacy.marshall.edu/springpreviewday)

Our Preview Day is set up “conference-style” where we allow our attendees to pick and choose which sessions they would like to attend to create a “build-your-own-adventure” type of experience. We also feature two Active Learning sessions for students to experience hands-on: a flipped classroom and a compound lab. As one of only three exclusively flipped classroom pharmacy schools in the U.S., it’s a highly recommended session!  

In addition to a student-led School of Pharmacy tour, sessions include:

  • Preparing for the new PCAT
  • Where Can I Go From Here? Career Options in Pharmacy
  • Experience Active Learning - What is "Active Learning"? Students will have the opportunity get a glimpse of what makes Marshall so special by experiencing the flipped classroom or a compounding laboratory.
  • The Admissions Process

Students also have the opportunity to visit our Pharmacy Fair, where they can meet and greet individuals from different departments such as Financial Aid, Experiential Learning, Student Organizations, and more.

Please feel free to share with your students. Space is limited and it fills quickly. And, if you would like to register as an academic advisor, please shoot me an email and I will happily provide you a separate registration form.

We hope to see you in April!

 

We Are…MARSHALL.
