and accepted students of the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern
University, Chicago, May 2016 edition.
monthly newsletter for prospective and accepted students of the Feinberg
School of Medicine.
Prospective members of the Class of 2020 visited Feinberg
to tour campus and meet faculty and students before making their final
decision on where to attend medical school.
Focus on the MD Curriculum
As part of the curriculum renewal, more than 40 different
focused clinical experiences (FCE)
were created to expose students to clinical manifestations of disease
through a focused history, clinical exam and related investigations
(tests, procedures). These experiences, developed by faculty volunteers,
provide students with access to a variety of clinicians and patients with
An example includes spending an afternoon in the echocardiography
laboratory, observing and learning from the technicians and patients
undergoing imaging studies and taking part in the cardiologist's review
of those studies. FCEs help to identify students' knowledge gaps, clarify
confusing concepts and increase interest in clinical medicine.
These experiences correspond to one or more lectures about
organ systems in the Science in
Medicine curriculum, making the approach to basic science
topics more comprehensive. There are a number of experiences available
for each organ system, with students being expected to register and
attend a specific number, but not every available FCE.

Sai Folmsbee, an MD/PhD student,
aims to understand the role of the protein αT-catenin, found in
heart cells, in the development of asthma.
As a student in the Medical
Scientist Training Program, Folmsbee
will start clinical rotations in the next few months and looks forward to
how he will be able to apply the knowledge he has learned in the lab to
"What I like about this project is that it sits at a
clinical integration point where it uses deep knowledge of pulmonary,
allergy and cardiac physiology. It requires a cross disciplinary
approach, which I think is very challenging and interesting."
Why did you choose Feinberg?
The biggest advantage Feinberg has given me is the ability
to find collaborators very easily and between different departments. I
was able to walk down the hallway and find collaborators I could work and
consult with on projects.
What is the biggest challenge
you've faced so far?
I had no experience doing certain experiments, assays and
tests. This was all new to me. I had to learn about asthma models, lung
physiology and vein structure, in addition to what all these cell types
do. So it was hard, but also rewarding.

What is the purpose of a research
experience for medical students at Feinberg?
The Feinberg curriculum is designed to function best for
students who are inquisitive and inquiry-driven. Participating in
original research is one way of encouraging this quality. Many of our
students seek careers in academic medicine and will use their experience
as student researchers to clarify their career plans.
What is the success rate of
Feinberg medical students' performance on the national boards?
The USMLE pass rate for Feinberg medical students has
remained at 99 percent for a number of years, with our students scoring
well above the national mean score.

6. True, National
Occupational Therapy Month was last
month, but it is never too late to promote the profession.
What is occupational therapy?
therapists help people who have suffered from an injury or illness or have
been diagnosed with a disability recover or develop skills so that they can
live the most independent life possible.
Who can we help?
you know that Occupational therapists work with people of all walks of life, from
premature infants to students with test anxiety to older people recovering
you know that Occupational therapists promote wellness as well as
rehabilitation? They assist people with workplace ergonomics, insomnia
treatment, and much more.
What can we do?
Therapists take your passion and make it happen!
Therapy: skills for the job of living.
What is going on at UTHSC?
Therapy Department had over 700 applicants to apply for the next cohort of
students beginning in January 2018!
Occupational Therapy Department allows students to go out into the community
not only to advocate for OT, but also to hone our skills while practicing
with actual patients!
Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Clinic at UTHSC is the first student run pro-bono
clinic in the nation, and it was opened in memory of a MOT student. It offers occupational therapy services to
underinsured and uninsured children.

made every attempt to minimize the number of changes to the application service
this year. Having just implemented the upgrade to the new VMCAS 3.0
platform last year, letting the service stabilize will benefit applicants
and schools alike," says Tony Wynne, Director of the Veterinary
Medical College Application Service. However, there are a couple of
operational changes that will impact applicants in the VMCAS 2017 cycle:

Applicants this year are
strongly urged to make every attempt to submit their application by
August 15, 2016 to ensure there is proper time for their application to get
through the transcript verification process. While this is not a deadline,
we have found that giving this extra time significantly reduces applicant
anxiety and eases the systemic backlogs.

Fix The Debt Summit
(EAST LANSING, Michigan)
April 26, 2016 – Veterinary student debt is an increasingly critical issue
that can be alleviated by employing a number of different approaches, from
a streamlined curricula to increasing scholarship opportunities, higher
starting salaries, lobbying federal lawmakers for legislation to lower
interest rates on student loans, and creating a national plan for reducing
the debt-to-income ratio (DIR).
These were among the
recommendations offered by a group of committed participants in the FIX THE
DEBT…Our Future, Our Responsibility summit, as the profession works to find
ways to reduce the burden on students and veterinarians alike. The summit,
organized jointly by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA),
Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) and Michigan
State University (MSU) College of Veterinary Medicine, brought together
approximately 180 individuals, which included veterinary students and
recent graduates, representatives from veterinary medical colleges,
veterinary employers, and governmental agencies and veterinary
The participants tackled
student debt and other financial issues that impact young veterinary
professionals. The collective goal over the three-day summit was to agree
on specific strategies to address the many facets of this complex
challenge, with the goal of reducing the DIR, which is an indicator of the
financial health of the veterinarian entering the profession. The DIR
currently stands at about 2:1, representing a level of educational debt
approximately twice the level of starting income.
The Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges
(AAVMC) spends lots of time collecting, sorting and interpreting data that
we receive from numerous sources throughout the year. Tim Shanahan, AAVMC's
Data Analyst / Program Manager is the key to making sense of the data and
putting together the pieces that we use to tell our veterinary medical
education story. See the first installment of the AAVMC Data Corner Series,

11. Wolf River Conservancy April
A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE
Dear Wolf River Conservancy Partner:
The Memphis community has recently experienced three
sewage leaks during a three-week period with negative environmental
effects on the Loosahatchie River and Cypress
Creek, a tributary to the Wolf River. The leaks were caused by
flooding and erosion, and we understand that City of Memphis
personnel did an excellent job in containing these leaks as quickly
as possible. Fortunately there was no contamination of drinking water
in any of these incidents. They do serve as a reminder, however, of
the ongoing need to protect our clean water supply.
Other recent water contamination incidents in our
- A toxic algae bloom in Lake Erie impacting the city of
- The accidental spill of wastewater from abandoned
mines into the Animas River in Colorado;
- An oil spill in the Yellowstone River affecting
Glendive, Montana, and other surrounding areas;
- And, of course, the much publicized Flint, Michigan,
All these incidents impaired the drinking water in their
communities in addition to polluting surface water. Fortunately, our
community’s water supply is 100% groundwater pumped from the Memphis
Sand Aquifer. At our current usage level and with good stewardship,
this aquifer can provide us with clean drinking water for 300 or 400
We cannot take our plentiful supply of water for granted,
however, nor can we ignore the fact that our aquifer also has
potential sources of contamination. This is why the core mission of
the Wolf River Conservancy’s remains so important – protecting land
parcels in the floodplain that serve as recharge for our aquifer
If you are reading this, you probably understand the
importance of protecting our environment. Hopefully you are also a
member/donor of the Wolf River Conservancy and we thank you” for your
support. We remain committed to our mission of conserving and
enhancing the Wolf River Watershed. Please share our story and
mission with your friends. You can always visit wolfriver.org to
