2.  The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (Memphis) offers a Master of Science in Laboratory Research and Management. 

I would like to bring to your attention the Master of Science Degree Program in Biomedical Sciences with a Concentration in Laboratory Research and Management (MSLRM) that is currently offered by The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis.   The mission of this 16-month 35-credit program is to train qualified individuals in the advanced technical, managerial, and administrative skills required to be a Senior Research Assistant, leading to Lab Manager in basic and translational biomedical research laboratories in the academic, government and private biotech sectors.  Candidates in this three-semester program will receive training in four integrated components:

 

Basic Science – Candidates will take graduate level courses in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, and Molecular Biology to advance their knowledge and understanding of biological disciplines that are critical for functioning in a basic or translational biological research laboratory.

 

Technical  – Candidates will be trained in both the theoretical and operational aspects of laboratory methodology and critical mathematical calculations.  This will include molecular biology methodologies, procedures in animal experimentation, statistical analysis, bioinformatics, scientific communication, scientific graphic design and basic laboratory equipment maintenance.

 

Administrative – Candidates will be trained and certified in radiation, biohazard, animal handling, human tissue handling, general safety compliance issues, the ethical conduct of scientific research, personnel management, conflict resolution, laboratory inventory management, and laboratory finance management.

 

Practical – Candidates will put their skills to practical use through a 6-month research laboratory internship.

 

Graduates of this program will help fulfill the local and national need for experienced, highly skilled technical staff that is essential to the success of biomedical research.  This program will be of significant benefit to the graduate by permitting entry into the workforce at a higher job level and higher salary, commensurate with the level of responsibility that these individuals would be qualified to assume.  This degree program is designed primarily for candidates who view laboratory management as a career goal rather than a transient position.   However, completion of this program would also be advantageous for individuals who might also choose to continue their graduate education in pursuit of a doctoral or professional degree at some later time in their career. 

 

If you are aware of any qualified students at your institution who would be interested in pursuing this career path, would you please direct them to the MSLRM homepage (http://cghs.uthsc.edu/Programs/BCLRMMO.php) or have them contact me directly with any questions. 

 

Thank you for your kind consideration.

 

 

Respectfully,

Student Knitting Group Aids Domestic Violence Survivors and Rehabilitation Patients

Lauren Andrews, a third-year medical student and long-time knitter, started the group Fein Yarns and Healing Threads during her first year of medical school after hearing from peers who wanted to learn to knit and crochet for stress relief.

 

"One of the things that Feinberg is good at is emphasizing that to be a good physician, you need to take care of yourself. You can't be burned out and have the empathy reserves to care for patients and have the energy to go the extra mile that a lot of situations need," Andrews said.

 

The group works with patients at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago on their fine motor skills through knitting, and makes baby hats for underserved patient populations.

 

 

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

 

 

 

Focus on the MD Curriculum

https://imgssl.constantcontact.com/letters/images/sys/S.gif

http://files.constantcontact.com/6e937abd001/ffd34a9f-e991-4edb-8a33-970e005a0528.png

Feinberg's curriculum incorporates simulation-based mastery learning beginning from the students' first year to their fourth.

 

During mastery learning, students have a predetermined mastery standard they must achieve to pass a curriculum. After taking a pretest, they perform deliberate practice where they complete multiple focused task repetitions while instructors provide immediate feedback and correct errors. Once learners feel they are performing at a high level of competency, they take a graded assessment. If they don't meet the benchmark, they continue training and retesting until they've acquired the skill. While practice time varies between individuals, the results are uniform -- eliminating performance variability.

 

Medical students have mastered everything from technical procedural skills to communication and interpersonal skills. David Salzman, '05 MD, '09 GME, MEd, director of Simulation for Undergraduate Medical Education and assistant professor of Emergency Medicine, has developed courses to closely align classroom instruction with relevant, hands-on clinical experiences called Synthesis and Application Modules.

 

At other times, students take courses such as "Breaking Bad News" and "Difficult Conversations," where they apply mastery learning techniques to simulations with standardized patients. "A focus on communication skills ensures that our graduates possess all of the clinical skills they need to competently care for patients starting on day one of their residency training," said Diane B. Wayne, '91 MD, vice dean for Education.

 

 

Why Did I Choose Feinberg?

Fourth-year medical student Karolina Kucybala

Karolina Kucybala, a fourth-year medical student, has enjoyed the opportunity during her clinical rotations to explore different hospitals, such as Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago.

 

"I've had the chance to work with experts, who have been the first to perform a specific type of surgery, which is amazing," she said.

 

Why did you choose Feinberg?

I was accepted early to Feinberg as part of the Northwestern Undergraduate Premedical Scholars Program. I found that the Education Centered Medical Home (ECMH) offered a unique environment for learning, and I valued the mentorship I received from third-and fourth-year medical students. I don't know of many schools that have an ECMH, but it's been the best part of Feinberg for me, especially my first two years of medical school.

 

What has been your most rewarding experience?

Working in the community clinics and connecting with patients from Chicago's Polish community. I came from Poland, and Chicago has a huge Polish population. I've had the chance to use my Polish and break down language barriers, which is one of the most gratifying things I've done.

 

 

Admissions Q&A

Do you have a student hosting program?

We do have a student hosting program at Feinberg. When you are invited to interview, you will receive additional information about requesting a student host for the evening before the interview day.

 

What if I have a last minute problem on the day of my Feinberg interview?

We kindly request you contact us as soon as you may anticipate a conflict in regards to your interview day (arrive late, travel issues, etc). Make sure you take the Office of Admissions phone number with you during your travels (312-503-8206). If it is after hours, please call anyway and leave a message so that we can start working through any problems as soon as possible.
