- Clinical Connections. The Clinical Connection Program is
currently being piloted in 4 sessions under the directorship of Reid
Adams. Dr. Adams, Director of the pilot program, is willing to assume
the responsibilities of the course director for 2001-02. The program
will be expanded to seven or eight sessions for the 2001-2002 year.
Faculty will be polled via e-mail for topic suggestions. One goal will
be to include topics that do not currently have a niche in the
curriculum or that are incompletely covered. Possible 2001-02 dates
that work well with the clerkship schedule have been identified.
