What is a colliculus?

Greetings classmates,

Welcome to week 2 of Brain and Behavior. Last organ system! We are so close.

1. Y2Q Survey – Only 37.4% of our class responded. We need at least 80% response rate so please search your email inbox for “Y2Q” and complete the survey. It really isn’t that long, and it’s a completely anonymous way to let the administration know how you think our school is doing.

2. Proof that surveys are useful – Thanks to those of you who filled out the Student Services Satisfaction Survey. The Deans had a meeting with representatives from Facilities yesterday, and the temperature in the D lecture halls and the TBL space is being addressed!

For the TBL space, things will be handled by the Office of Medical Education.

For the D lecture halls, please contact me if you attend lecture 100% of the time and are willing to be in charge of the thermostat. Given a consensus from class goers, the thermostat will be able to be adjusted between 70 and 74 (it was previously locked at 72).

3. Flu Shots – It is that time of the year. Until October 31st, you can get your flu shots at the Student Health Clinic in the Aston Building. My brother has the flu right now and (I imagine) he wishes he had listened to his big sister. Don’t be like my brother. Get your flu shot (plus in your case, it’s mandatory).

4. Anonymous feedback form – If there is anything you would like us to change or work on without us knowing who the suggestion came from, please fill out this anonymous feedback form.

5. Student of the Week – Learn more about Naomi Freeman of Cary College.

6. Carter Blood Drive – The PDA Outreach Committee and medical school is hosting Carter Blood Drive this October. It will be on South Campus, under the library stairwell from 10:00 AM to 4:00PM. They have two dates – October 18, 2017 and October 19, 2017.

They need some volunteers to sign-up donors and greet them. You can come whenever you have some free time and for any duration of time your schedule allows and help them.

What is Nexplanon?

Greetings classmates,

As we head into the final week of Endo/Repro, here is the news of the week.

WE NEED YOUR IDEAS/COMMENTS on proposed plans and future projects! Please note that there are multiple forms with this email; we ask that you please participate by filling out the forms. We appreciate your help and your ideas. Brace yourself, this might be extensive.

  1. UT Southwestern Six Year Plan (Next meeting October 12) – This is the year for the revision of the six-year plan of UT Southwestern. Many propositions are being brought up and discussed by the administration. This is definitely HUGE as many of the points actually prioritized on the six year plan will get administrative, financial, and faculty support moving forward for the next two to six years. Thus, we would like to take time to assess and come up with plans for agendas and initiatives that we believe would be great for the upcoming years.

Link for Six-Year Plan Ideas: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe6z0PxMQgVEhlkSGAcYIyWDiWUHDc_iZtLBScQQs562z4VGg/viewform

Your contributions are highly sought! Think boldly! See attached for the copy of the last report.

Student Trainee Six Year Plan Recommendations 2016-2022 Final

P.S. The Simulation Center building that we all see going up was part of the previous Six-Year Plan!

  1. Pavilion Renovation – Have you used the Pavilion before? for basketball? attended pumpkin carving or other activities hosted on the court? Please voice your opinions. We are working with the Student Center to see what we can do with the Pavilion as it is currently  undergoing a thorough review. We have a few ideas on board, please help us by sharing your thoughts.

Link for Pavilion Renovation: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScT5l2od7jDeup9cnCeakHLCS5OdwsGyKhySMOcXukqb2rm-w/viewform

Learn more about campus statistics by visiting their website at http://www.utsouthwestern.edu/about-us/administrative-offices/university-police/.
  1. Flu Shots –It is that time of the year. Starting today, Monday Oct 2nd until October 31st, you can get your flu shots at Student Health Clinic in Aston Building.
  1. Annual Student Services Survey – Complete the survey to provide feedback on the services at UT Southwestern focused on supporting students. You should have received an individual surveymonkey link from Dr. Mihalic. To encourage participation, Student Affairs will offer INCENTIVES to the medical school class who achieves the highest number of participants in the form of Amazon gift cards (1 for $100, and twenty for $20) via a random drawing. The AAMC Y2Q has also arrived in your inbox, and incentives are provided for that one too (see Dr. Mihalic’s second email).
  1. Tuition Increase – This year we will work with academic administration and financial aid in coming up with a proposal for tuition. 2 years ago, student leadership was able to decrease the tuition increase to 3% (change from proposed 4%). Your voice matters. If you have any comments/questions, please use the anonymous feedback form below. If you also want to know where your tuition is going towards, please do let us know as well.
  1. Anonymous feedback form– If there is anything you would like us to change or work on without us knowing who the suggestion came from, please fill out this anonymous feedback form.
  1. Student of the week– Learn more about Savannah Hampton of Sprague College.
  1. United for Puerto Rico – The recent hurricanes have left Puerto Ricans in dire need. Help us as we collect items for relief. See attached for the flyer. We will be using the boxes located on the carrels and student center.

What is pheochromocytoma?

Hey everyone,

Happy second week of endocrine!

1. Curriculum AOA Guides – Your curriculum reps need help! If you can find it in your heart to help write AOA guides for past courses (most urgent right now is Tissues since the course has already started), please email Christian Maxwell and Aakash Gandhi. O&H is already taken care of but they need help for all the other classes.

2. Tuition Increase and 6 Year Plan – Many important things are happening at the Student Leadership Council this semester.

We are updating the 6 Year Plan. See Dr Mihalic’s email about it, and particularly focus on the section regarding campus-wide changes as well as the section on medical school-specific changes. We will be sending a separate email about it once we are ready for formal feedback, but in the meantime, feel free to email us if you have ideas for items to add to the plan that aren’t already on there.

Tuition is going to increase (as mandated by the University of Texas, tuition increases every two years), and the SLC gets to give input on how much we are willing to let it increase by, as well as what the extra tuition will be put to use for. Our first meeting regarding tuition is this Thursday (9/21), and we will provide more information about the process once we know more (again, we will send a separate email with a form for feedback).

3. Picmonic Presentation (10/23) –  We have been working with Picmonic on setting up a chance to present to the 1st and 2nd-year medical students. In a nutshell, Picmonic provides an audio visual experience that takes high yield medical information and presents it in a research backed way to help students retain the information. Please RSVP as soon as you can for their October 23rd presentation here:  https://www.picmonic.com/presentations. The time is 6:30pm, not 12:00pm as advertised on the RSVP. Discounts, free access opportunities for the participants and dinner will be provided as well.

The presentation includes study strategies and tactics, the science behind their learning platform, a walkthrough/demonstration and usually lasts about 30 minutes depending on the Q&A section.

4. Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts – We are in dire need of volunteers especially for the credentialing volunteer section. Each task is truly crucial to the flow of the shelter, and the shelter managers and evacuees appreciate for your time and efforts. Please sign up through this form link and continue to donate to the relief drive.

UTSW Harvey Relief

5. Dr. Seldin Lecture on “Nazi Medicine and its Corruption of Medical Ethics.”   –  it will be taking place on October 2nd at 5:30PM in NB2 EEF – Simmons Auditorium, followed by a reception at 6:30 PM. Dr. Seldin, who in 1947 testified in a trial leading to the conviction of a Nazi gastroenterologist, needless to say has a unique perspective to share on this topic. This is a truly rare opportunity that you will not want to miss, and for those to whom it still applies (MS1s and MS2s) this will be counting for college points.

6. Mass emails – Thank you so much for participating in our efforts to minimize mass emails. We hope the listserve/email list option is working well for everyone.

7. Check out the Student Profile Tab to find out about Christy Hinz from Seldin College.

8. Anonymous feedback form – If there is anything you would like us to change or work on without us knowing who the suggestion came from, please fill out this anonymous feedback form.
As always please reach out to us with any questions or concerns,
Clementine and Umaru
