CLASS INFORMATION

Class of 2017

  • Seeking Male Volunteers at Muscular Dystrophy Association's Summer Camp Program: Erin Morin, the Camp Director for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's summer camp program that takes place in Poland, Maine, is currently seeking some additional male volunteer counselors who may be interested in joining their team at their annual week of camp. This camp is an overnight camp from August 14th-August 20th, Agassiz Village in Poland, Maine, and is for children ages 6-17 who are living with a muscle disease. Camp counselors play a vital role in the success of our camp; they are a friend for the week and assist the campers with any tasks that are needed as well as participate in all the camp fun! Counselors need to be 16 years old or older. There is no cost to apply or volunteer; food and lodging are provided. For more information, you can view the camp video from this past summer and the volunteer solicitation flyer. At the summer camps, they have a strict 1:1 ratio rule and they are approximately 5 male counselors shy of meeting this goal. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Erin Morin, Camp Director and Family Support and Clinical Care Coordinator for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

  • Survey on Professionalism and Peer Feedback: You are invited to participate in a study I am conducting on Perceptions of Professionalism and Peer Feedback among Medical Students. Please take time to complete this anonymous survey, which should take approximately 20 minutes.

We are also studying how training and experience with providing feedback to peers may contribute to the development of a professional identity. Your perspectives on this topic are vital! If you filled out this survey last summer, please do it again (it's even shorter than it was last year!). If this is your first time completing this survey, that's great, too. To thank you for your time and input, you will be given an opportunity at the end of the survey to submit your name into a random drawing to win one of three $25 gift cards to City Market. If your name is selected as a winner, you will be notified by email. The survey will remain open until midnight on Thursday, August 18th.

Here at the Dana Medical Library, we see a fascinating intersection of literature, medicine and science. In the new exhibit, Medicine, Science and Literature: Reading for the Summer Months, we highlight a special collection of books that are most definitely not clinical. Instead, these literary works – fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, poetry, essays - can inspire and encourage health care professionals to take a deeper look into life and to explore topics that are both age old and cutting edge.

This summer, the Library will be showcasing only the most current and bestselling books, and we encourage you to stop by and pick one up! Look for this new exhibit in our display cases in early July.

Legacy Teachers Collaborative Workshop

The highly successful Legacy Teachers program at the University of Missouri-Columbia was developed to contribute to an institutional climate that promotes patient-centered care and to provide our third year medical students the opportunity to recognize and say thank you to a patient who has taught them lessons they feel will make them a better physician. This program has become a celebrated tradition at the University of Missouri School of Medicine and now has a role in the first three years of our curriculum.

The Legacy Teachers Invitational Workshop will include a day of sharing and education as well as attendance at the 12th Annual Legacy Teachers Luncheon where students get to express their personal gratitude to their Legacy Teachers. In the past two years we have had eight schools participate in our workshop and rated the experience very highly. These schools included: Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine, Texas Tech University El Paso , Tufts University School of Medicine, University of Kansas-Wichita School of Medicine, University of North Carolina School of Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine and University of South Dakota.

We are limiting this workshop attendance, so please RSVP by January 15, 2017 if you would like to attend. A tentative schedule is attached. More information about our Legacy Teachers program, including a video, can be found at the Legacy Teachers Invitational Workshop webpage.

Room to rent!

Medical students preferred! Room with loft available in my spacious, light & airy 2500 square-feet, 2nd floor Artist Salon/Studio on Officer's Row in Fort Ethan Allen. The building is Victorian Queen Anne brick built in 1900 & on the National Historic Register, with 7-foot windows, 12-foot ceilings & hardwood floors.

Views of the Parade Ground out front, perfect for jogging, there is also a tennis court & a Wildlife Refuge across the street. This is a quiet, friendly, professional neighborhood close to Burlington & Essex. I have a Scottie dog! Your room is off the kitchen, with a bathroom that is for your use.

This just posted to Craigslist as a 1-year lease, but I would happily consider the right student/visiting medical staff for a smaller term arrangement.
