- Basic Science for Careers Co-Directors. Don Innes has
received approximately eight applications from faculty interesting in
these positions. Most are clinicians but there are a few from
Basic Science educators. The applications will be reviewed by a
search committee (Richard Pearson, Donald Innes, Jerry Short and
two members of the Curriculum Committee, Williams Wilson and Robert
Bloodgood) and followed by interviews with selected applicants in early
- University of Washington School of Medicine
Colleges – Back to the Bedside. Jerry Short presented a film
demonstrating an innovative technique used for teaching medical
students at the University of Washing School of Medicine
Colleges. A core group of faculty (~30) are responsible for
bedside teaching early in the second year and throughout the third
year. Students at the end of the second year in this
program are well-prepared for the clerkship year. The program
cements in the students a dedication to patient care and
- Mentorship Program. John Gazewood’s proposal for
pairing students with a consistent faculty mentor throughout the first
and second years of medical school was discussed briefly. The proposal
is to provide a patient encounter with a physician approximately one
afternoon a week for 1-1/2 hours. This physician could also serve
as a faculty mentor for the student. Currently, one-on-one “mentoring”
by a faculty member in the first two years of medical school is usually
student initiated and informal.
- Status of Medical Education Building
. Bob Bloodgood updated the Committee on the work of the
Medical Education Building Committee. The Committee recently met
with Shirley Dugdale – consultant, currently in town for 2nd
visit. The building will have about 36,000 square feet assignable
space in five floors (about 7,000 sq ft assignable space per
floor). The cost of the building is $25 million and is firm
(longer time, less value).
Atrium, admissions, financial aid, learning support services
Common Spaces (cafe, student lounge, lockers, Mulholland Offices)
Simulation Center – Marcus Martin
Clinical Skills Center
Two large teaching spaces (for 1st and 2nd year classes)
Small group teaching spaces (10 person rooms; 35 person rooms)
Due to limitations in space, at this point in the planning process,
Gross Anatomy labs; 2nd floor Jordan Hall teaching lab space will not
be housed the new building.
Various layouts for the two large teaching spaces for first and second
year were demonstrated and discussed.
Plans for the Simulation Center will discussed in more detail by Dr.
Martin at a Curriculum Committee meeting in January.
Plans for a Clinical Skills Center will discussed in more detail by
Drs. Short and Corbett at a Curriculum Committee meeting in
The next meeting of the Curriculum Committee will be Thursday,
December 9, at 4:00 in the Surgery Conference Room.
Agenda: 1) Dr. Claudette Dalton will discuss the second
year Preceptorship Program. 2) Drs. Eugene Corbett, Michael Rein,
and Brian Wispelwey will present their proposal for the Clinical
Skills Educator program.
