Happy Birthday, Dr. Shields!!

That was beautiful

Zelma Bocanegra
47:00
happy birthday Dr. Shields!
(ಠ_ಠ)
47:35
what about away (not at utmb) preceptorships?
Stacy Shields
47:58

Is it possible that period 2 preceptorships may be completely cancelled, or are we "guaranteed" that a virtual activity will be available to us?
Andrew Merrill
48:19
Also, would you describe what a virtual experience might look like?
Tyler Nsekpong
50:03
If interested in the TRT Track how will we route into that without a full 8-week research rotation? will there be an exception?
Gabrielle Manno
51:05
Is there anyone here from global health who can talk about the potential global-loca; preceptorships
Gabrielle Manno
51:40
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?
Gabrielle Manno
54:20
We all have stuff in the anatomy lockers I think
Morgan Williams
54:31
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?
Dawnelle Schatte
55:21
Define "normal?"
Bryan Le
55:40
When can we expect POM objectives regarding the exam?
Morgan Williams
55:57
Normal: I’m just as stressed, but instead of being stressed alone, I can be stressed with 220+ of my closest friend on campus
Gabrielle Manno
56:30
I need to be stress in a non-home environment, I agree Morgan
Dawnelle Schatte
56:57
Morgan, join us Mondays at 5pm for informal wellness to have a chance to connect with each other https://zoom.us/j/162288209
Dawnelle Schatte
57:46
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
Dawnelle Schatte
58:32
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
Bryan Le
58:47
For the remainder of the school year do we need to be in Galveston or can we be home home?
Dawnelle Schatte
59:24
Dr. Self won the Dallas marathon - so lets all ask her the secret to success
Chandler Self
59:29
hahaha
era buck
01:01:35
Bless you, Dr. Self
Janice Thomas
01:01:58
How about out-of-state students?
Dawnelle Schatte
01:02:44
If you go somewhere that has toilet paper, will you offer to send some back?
vcarmich
01:03:23
LOL at Dr. Schatte.. :-)
haileyeckert
01:04:47
Oh we know how great they are!! They are wonderful!!
Dawnelle Schatte
01:07:53
Interpretive dance instead?
Janice Thomas
01:08:00
Dr. Self, you might be able to drop the PPT on here and have Ms. Zelma project the slides, if nothing else works!
Dawnelle Schatte
01:08:08
I am - I just have my camera off
Majka Woods
01:09:42
Success!
haileyeckert
01:10:49
Is there any way we could have one or two review sessions during the time from April 22nd until our final exam?
Dawnelle Schatte
01:11:19
POM1 is later
haileyeckert
01:11:26
Isn’t the POM final April 20th?
┌( ಠ‿ಠ)┘
01:11:45
ha
brittanyrich
01:11:53
Jokes are supposed to be funny! :P
Dawnelle Schatte
01:12:00
I thought it was funny!
┌( ಠ‿ಠ)┘
01:12:05
it was
Pooja Agrawal
01:12:06
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?
brittanyrich
01:12:10
It was :) haha
Golden
01:13:01
I'm confused now. Is POM on 4/13 or 4/20?
lexilakatta
01:13:16
^^ Yes, can someone clarify this please
Emma Mele
01:13:30
I am also confused, I believe in the last town hall we were told that it would be the 20th
Janice Thomas
01:14:16
And the open-response questions for the POM final are 2-4 questions, correct?
haileyeckert
01:14:29
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?
Julie McKee
01:14:47
POM1: We’ll get the format to you as soon as we’ve finalized them.
Andrew Merrill
01:15:21
Our POM exam is in the afternoon, correct?
lexilakatta
01:15:45
Just to clarify, will there be some kind of review for the POM exam?
haileyeckert
01:15:50
OHHHH okay thank you!! :)
haileyeckert
01:15:53
cruel
Andrew Merrill
01:15:56
100% MCQ
samgao
01:15:59
What time of day do we expect our exams?
Golden
01:16:02
Mostly?
Taylor Troutman
01:16:32
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
Andrew Ginsberg
01:16:47
So NHB tests will be multiple choice, and POM exams will consist of both multiple choice and free response?
Mario Zuniga
01:17:05
Do we have an idea on how the exams will be given? Ecampus or different testing software?
Julie McKee
01:17:41
POM exam: Mostly MC and MAYBE a couple open ended response.
Mario Zuniga
01:18:20
okay! Thank you! Appreciate the answer.
JaysonnVel
01:18:32
What is the format of the lab exam?
Julie McKee
01:19:36
POM: It’s all gonna be stuff y’all have seen before.
Tyler James
01:19:39
Will there be a prep materials uploaded to Blackboard for the POM final to help us prepare for it as well?
JaysonnVel
01:19:39
Thank you!
Dawnelle Schatte
01:19:59
Dr. Park is working on guidance of review materials
Tyler James
01:20:13
Great - thank you!
Andrew Merrill
01:20:13
*POM: It's all gonna be stuff y'all "should" have seen before.
Jenna Reisler
01:20:56
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
Gabrielle Manno
01:21:32
I just wanted to thank everyone for working so hard for us!
Jenna Reisler
01:21:42
thank you!
Andrew Merrill
01:21:44
Are these going to become more consistent, or should we expect that these townhalls can happen at any time?
Dawnelle Schatte
01:22:01
I think we should have April Fool's jokes at each session
lexilakatta
01:22:04
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?
Sam Postma
01:22:20
Thank you everyone!
Morgan Williams
01:22:29
Thank you guys for your help! I love these meetings and really benefit from the information we are given.
Andrew Ginsberg
01:23:26
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?
haileyeckert
01:23:49
I think we are concerned about the possibility of open ended POM questions when this is not a true NMBE style
Julie McKee
01:24:10
What type of jokes did CDC recommend for COVID-19? Inside Jokes!
Dawnelle Schatte
01:24:17
For the open ended questions - think more in the style of your post-encounter stations in the OSCE
Chandler Self
01:24:22
hahahaha
Chandler Self
01:24:57
Actually you do have NMBE open ended questions on Step 3, just FYI
haileyeckert
01:26:51
Okay, thank you guys!! That makes me feel much better.
Dawnelle Schatte
01:27:31
The vicissitudes are due to changes in technology and what is available
jerrichotipo
01:27:41
lolll
Dawnelle Schatte
01:27:44
We aren't trying to trick anyone or make it difficult
Dawnelle Schatte
01:28:20
Wear a sweater - it's a little chilly outside
Mario Zuniga
01:28:21
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?
Mario Zuniga
01:29:42
No problem! I'm glad to hear that there are talks looking into changing credit structure!
Mario Zuniga
01:29:51
Thank you!
Christina Onabajo
01:29:58
