Summary of 10-12-00 CME Minutes
Newly elected Year I student representative Jim Lan suggested
investigating possibility of online listing of MAPs (Medical Apprenticeship Programs) at
the Registrars office with a search mechanism designating department, type of
clinical setting, and gender/race of the doctor.
Facility problems have been interfering with the educational
Lack of equipment/broken equipment with respect to slide projectors,
LCD projectors, and document cameras in the lecture halls as well as computer problems
impeding the release of Histology exam scores have been frustrating to faculty and
Student accountability for the three longitudinal committees: Gross Anatomy, Histology, and Pathology
Questions on integration of material remain.
The Committee on Students will receive from both chairs of the
Histology and Gross Anatomy longitudinal committees a midterm status report via student
numbers so that the Committee on Students will have an idea of Year I student performance
when several committees end in March.
Update on secure exam issue
After presentation of student concerns at the CME, Year II student
representative Scott Walker met with principals involved for an honest exchange of views. The faculty emphasized that secure exams are a
necessity. However, the faculty are always
looking at new ways to evaluate. Mr. Walker
will attend the upcoming Curriculum Leadership Council meeting.
In an effort not to violate the secure exam process currently under
discussion, faculty exercised extreme caution in reviewing exams. This resulted in students getting the runaround
when trying to find people to answer their questions.
The issue of post-exam review must be finalized so that a decision can be
made on what can and cannot be reviewed with students.
The medical education
retreat will take place Friday, February 23, 2001, at Landerhaven. The keynote speaker will be Jordan J. Cohen, M.D.,
President of the AAMC.
