MS1 Town Hall - Shared screen with speaker view
Has any new information come about regarding Perceptorships?
Happy birthday, Dr. Shields!!!
Happy Birthday, Dr. Shields!!
That was beautiful
do we have an update about the potential COVID research for SRPs discussed last week?
happy birthday Dr. Shields!
what about away (not at utmb) preceptorships?
Look out for an email from Student Health this morning, but below is the info for the first wellness session today: Topic: Anxiety Reduction and Emotional RegulationTime: Apr 1, 2020 12:00 PMJoin Zoom Meetinghttps://zoom.us/j/964591932Meeting ID: 964 591 932One tap mobile+13462487799,,964591932# US (Houston)877 853 5257 US Toll-free888 475 4499 US Toll-freeMeeting ID: 964 591 932Find your local number: https://zoom.us/u/abpKFjVoLo
Is it possible that period 2 preceptorships may be completely cancelled, or are we "guaranteed" that a virtual activity will be available to us?
Also, would you describe what a virtual experience might look like?
If interested in the TRT Track how will we route into that without a full 8-week research rotation? will there be an exception?
Is there anyone here from global health who can talk about the potential global-loca; preceptorships
Sorry if there’s a typo, my cat jumped on my laptop mid-type
A little side note—when will we be able to use our badge access to be back on campus again?
We all have stuff in the anatomy lockers I think
This may be too far in the future, but is it safe to assume/hope that we will be back to “normal” by the time 2nd year begins?
When can we expect POM objectives regarding the exam?
Normal: I’m just as stressed, but instead of being stressed alone, I can be stressed with 220+ of my closest friend on campus
I need to be stress in a non-home environment, I agree Morgan
Morgan, join us Mondays at 5pm for informal wellness to have a chance to connect with each other https://zoom.us/j/162288209
And I remind everyone that Warren G. Harding popularized "a return to normalcy" as his campaign slogan - please instead use "normality" since I hate the word normalcy
And that is what all the grief literature says - after a big shift and change, we don't return to normal but rather a new normal
For the remainder of the school year do we need to be in Galveston or can we be home home?
Dr. Self won the Dallas marathon - so lets all ask her the secret to success
Bless you, Dr. Self
How about out-of-state students?
If you go somewhere that has toilet paper, will you offer to send some back?
LOL at Dr. Schatte.. :-)
Oh we know how great they are!! They are wonderful!!
Interpretive dance instead?
Dr. Self, you might be able to drop the PPT on here and have Ms. Zelma project the slides, if nothing else works!
I am - I just have my camera off
Is there any way we could have one or two review sessions during the time from April 22nd until our final exam?
POM1 is later
Isn’t the POM final April 20th?
Jokes are supposed to be funny! :P
I thought it was funny!
Nice try haha! :) Dr. Self and Dr. Rastellini, are the questions that you are going to write/are in the process of writing going to mimic "NBME-style" questions?
It was :) haha
I'm confused now. Is POM on 4/13 or 4/20?
^^ Yes, can someone clarify this please
I am also confused, I believe in the last town hall we were told that it would be the 20th
And the open-response questions for the POM final are 2-4 questions, correct?
If our exam is supposed to be comparable to NBME, how is free response/open ended question going to compare? Also is the entire exam free response/open ended? Or is it mostly multiple choice with a few free response?
POM1: We’ll get the format to you as soon as we’ve finalized them.
Our POM exam is in the afternoon, correct?
Just to clarify, will there be some kind of review for the POM exam?
OHHHH okay thank you!! :)
What time of day do we expect our exams?
We know that is the case for NBME but I thought someone said that the POM exam would have 2-4 short answer questions when Dr. McKee spoke
So NHB tests will be multiple choice, and POM exams will consist of both multiple choice and free response?
Do we have an idea on how the exams will be given? Ecampus or different testing software?
POM exam: Mostly MC and MAYBE a couple open ended response.
okay! Thank you! Appreciate the answer.
What is the format of the lab exam?
POM: It’s all gonna be stuff y’all have seen before.
Will there be a prep materials uploaded to Blackboard for the POM final to help us prepare for it as well?
Dr. Park is working on guidance of review materials
Great - thank you!
*POM: It's all gonna be stuff y'all "should" have seen before.
sorry for all of these SRP questions - I asked Chris Rhodes about doing research for 4 weeks, and he said that if we applied to the 8 week one then we will be able to do the 4 week one. I know a lot depends on our mentor, but will it have to be remote or will we be able to go into the lab
I just wanted to thank everyone for working so hard for us!
Are these going to become more consistent, or should we expect that these townhalls can happen at any time?
I think we should have April Fool's jokes at each session
I may have missed this because I joined late, but Chris had mentioned that if our research is already mostly remote anyway, we can get the full 8 weeks of credit still. Will that change now that we have an exam a week after the official class end date?
Thank you everyone!
Thank you guys for your help! I love these meetings and really benefit from the information we are given.
When will we learn more about what 2nd half preceptorships will still be available, and if we find out ours it is not available, how do we go about finding out what options there are for those 2nd 4 weeks?
I think we are concerned about the possibility of open ended POM questions when this is not a true NMBE style
What type of jokes did CDC recommend for COVID-19? Inside Jokes!
For the open ended questions - think more in the style of your post-encounter stations in the OSCE
Actually you do have NMBE open ended questions on Step 3, just FYI
Okay, thank you guys!! That makes me feel much better.
The vicissitudes are due to changes in technology and what is available
We aren't trying to trick anyone or make it difficult
Wear a sweater - it's a little chilly outside
Sorry for looking really long term into the future, but because we are missing out on some opportunity to receive credit this summer, could we expect winter minimesters or other opportunities to accumulate credit?
No problem! I'm glad to hear that there are talks looking into changing credit structure!
You guys are the best thanks so so much for your efforts during this time 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Thank you very much! I am looking forward to the next one. These are so informative!
Thank you all so much!
Thank you so much!
Thank you so much!!!
Thank you very much!
