4th Annual Medical and Bioscience Education Day / SIMEC V
Lydia and Jonathan presented on FAMMED280: Student Community Outreach and Physician Support (S-CORPS) at this year's SIMEC conference. The course started at the beginning of the pandemic, with goals of leveraging the talents of preclinical medical students to provide emotional support for vulnerable patients via telehealth. The course is still ongoing, and we are continually trying to improve, please send us any and all feedback!" For more details please email me at email@example.com.
You can watch the video of our presentation at the SIMEC V conference here.
Vinita Shivakumar, Medical Student presented her work done with Tracy Rydel, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, PCPH, on how last fall, they developed a pre-clerkship elective on Primary Care Defined: Perspectives and Procedures" to increase the 'primary care' visibility and desirability at our institution. We found that there was widespread interest in this course and that enrollees got significantly interested in a primary care career than non-enrollees after the course. We believe that our course design of experiential learning through procedure workshops and early student-faculty engagement offers a framework for other institutions to promote the value of primary care specialties. Here’s a picture of the poster presented at the conference.

Cureus, the open access medical science journal platform published “Making It Work”: A Preliminary Mixed Methods Study of Rural Trauma Care Access and Resources in New Mexico”, a research paper submitted by Anna Carroll, our fourth-year medical student. The bulk of the data collection for this research project took place in the summer of 2018. After many rounds of analysis, writing, editing, reviewing, and revising, the write-up of this project finally found its publication “home” in this journal.
