Muhammad S.

What plan is being made for EM/neurology rotations for students enrolled in Period 11
Ali Smith
34:57
Same question for those taking EM/Neuro in period 10
Amanda Price
35:41
Can you address the rumors about early graduation?

36:39
Same question for those taking AIs in period 10
catherinehazen
39:30
If we are currently in an AI that was interrupted will we be switched into one of these new options once approved?
Muhammad S.
40:08
On the same question, will that virtual course be available for enrollment in our respective periods or would we be able to take it in Period 10 if we were originally enrolled in Period 11? Thank you
Celeste Zsembery
41:19
would an early graduation be virtual?
Tewfeek
41:36
What would be the reason for graduating us early?
Janani
42:03
what’s the status/ability of staff members to assist with our residency on boarding paperwork (sending transcripts, med school verification forms, etc)?
Nelson Holmes
42:12
In the event of early graduation would students be compelled to begin residency early?
Kara Jencks
42:43
would we be getting paid if graduated early? if so, where would money come from?
Robert Thompson
43:07
Dr. Farr -- If we have already created an alternate virtual AI curriculum which was approved by our AI's attending, could we get credit for this?
James Fu
44:26
What if we have classes where the grades have not been submitted yet? There were some classes I finished around 2 months ago but the grade field is still empty.
iPhone
44:34
Will there be any chance of placing contingencies on graduation, specifically that we be sent out to work in the current situation?
Kimberly Mendoza
45:59
For the requirements that have to be completed, is there a possibility to take the “virtual” courses concurrently or will they have to be taken one at a time?
Alyssa Shaffner
47:30
Or any help with relocation expenses if things are expedited?
Janani
48:35
can we correctly assume now that we will not be returning to galveston/utmb, so should we figure out when/how to properly move out when it’s safe to do so? can admin keep us in the loop about that logistical difficulty?
Muhammad S.
49:37
Would we be contacting our residency program with regards to early graduation? How do we get this process started on our end?
Amanda Price
49:49
Would early graduation affect our health insurance if on a UTMB employee or student plan?
Celeste Zsembery
50:20
any information about ACLS/BLS/ PALS sign-off since those have been cancelled?
catherinehazen
50:49
especially if programs require them to be done prior to starting
Megan White
51:23
So are we going to be immediately (NOW) enrolled in the course we would be taking in period 11?
iPhone2
52:05
If we had any missing classes/not on track for graduation, would we have been notified already?
Komal Nathani
53:05
Do you suspect UTMB residencies will follow?
Milena Lobaina
53:11
When should we be expecting the virtual courses for EM/Neurology to start? Especially since there is only 1 week left for period 10 to finish.
Brian Dawes
53:31
In the interim, pending early graduation, are there currently any discussions of MS4s being allowed to be voluntarily involved in clinical responses in any form?
Janani
54:05
if we were in a clinical elective that we needed for graduation when released recently, do we need to make up those 2 weeks as well or will everyone receive the elective credits they need?
Darcy
57:08
I heard a rumor that we had to have a Quantiferon test prior to graduation. Is this true, and how will we get tested if COVID continues?
Alyssa Shaffner
58:03
Q gold tests are still being done at student health as long as you don’t have symptoms. I got mine earlier this week.
Muhammad S.
58:06
When will you be able to give a final notification whether or not UTMB does early graduation?
Andrew Smith
01:00:04
If only an elective credit is needed for graduation (clinical or non-clinical) what options would be available?
Kimberly Mendoza
01:01:39
For the new virtual courses, do you anticipate these courses will be scheduled in which we all have to participate at a certain time or will they be pre-recorded? Keeping in mind many of us who have roommates in different career fields who are also doing online courses or we are caring for family it can be difficult to participate in “normal work hours”
Dawnelle Schatte
01:02:27
Will do - I will have some MS4s help me send out invites for folks who are interested in some wellness meetings.
Kara Jencks
01:02:33
yes, can we please have another if we have additional updates next week?
