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 lydiatam@stanford.edu.

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.
