VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

1.  A personal note from Jennifer Farace, Director of Curricular and Student Affairs at UCSD School of Medicine:  There is a wonderful non-profit organization (Combine5) which has developed programs for the San Diego community that promote staying fit and living a healthy life. The ultimate goal of the organization is to support the community through enrichment-based programs that help youth in academics, athletics, mentorship, fitness, and nutrition. I have been truly impressed with what I have seen from them to date in terms of commitment and professionalism, which is why I have volunteered to work with them. (Further information about the organization in general can be found at: http://combine5.com/ )

One activity they are currently coordinating is a “Healthy Lifestyles Fitness & Nutrition Fair” on January 10, 2015.  As part of my role on the committee, I am looking for student volunteers to help out at the fair.  Flyer for the fair:  http://aepapps.ucsd.edu/hmp3/files/C5_Healthy_Lifestyles_Fitness_Nutrition_Fair.pdfNote:  the date of the fair is incorrect on this flyer.  The new date is Saturday, Jan. 10.

Note from Adele:  Keep an eye on this space!  When I receive the volunteer sign-up sheet I will let everyone know.

 

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

1.  My name is Amy Williams and I am a third year pediatric emergency medicine fellow at Rady Children’s Hospital.  I am looking to recruit someone (ideally a pre-medical or medical student) to help with my ongoing research study.  My study is assessing procedural anxiety in children during facial laceration repair.  I am looking to recruit someone to review video tapings of laceration repairs and to rate anxiety levels using a validated scale.  I would anticipate the work taking on average 2-3 hours every 1-2 weeks over the next 4-5 months (about 25 hours total).  Contact me (amywilliams@rchsd.org) if you're interested and we can set up a meeting soon to discuss more.

2.  GET PUBLISHED!  Saltman Quarterly, the premier undergraduate research journal of the Division of Biological Sciences, wants to publish your original biology research, scientific review papers, and brevias.  Flyer:  http://aepapps.ucsd.edu/hmp3/files/Saltman_Quarterly_Submission.2015.pdfNote from Adele:  It is never to early to begin prep for publication.


 

POST-BAC SPECIAL SECTION

***There was too much to write, so I just created a document containing the info I wanted share.  Here it is:  http://aepapps.ucsd.edu/hmp3/files/Postbac_Alternatives.2014.docx.  Hope it helps!

 

FOR FUTURE DOCTORS:

1.  Incredible opportunity to observe surgery in the UC Davis Pre-Medical Surgical Internship, Mentorship, and Research Program.  This incredible program is offered three times a year:  spring, summer and fall.  The upcoming spring deadline is Nov. 15Read all about it and apply at http://us1.campaign-archive1.com/?u=c601a314b955db590d73fbfa0&id=dd552154dc&e=622dc620f8

2.  Spotlight on Osteopathic Medicine:  learn what OMM is about right here:  http://aepapps.ucsd.edu/hmp3/files/AACOM-OMM_Visualized.pdf.  OMM is explained and visualized for you in this flyer.  Many premedical students across the nation are closely identifying with osteopathic medicines’ philosophical approach to whole-patient centered health care.  One of the many hallmarks of excellence is in Osteopathic Medicine’s approach through the use of OMM.

3.  More D.O. stuff:  Check out today’s AACOMAS Facebook post:  What is a DO? What makes osteopathic physicians unique? Learn more from a medical student, attending A.T. Still University in Kirksville, MO, and spread the word!

Here are the Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine which form the underlying philosophy of osteopathic medicine.

      Tenets of Osteopathic Medicine

*The body is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit.  *The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.  *Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.  *Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.

4.  HMP3 still has the old MCAT Practice Tests for sale for $20 each (regular price $35) through January of 2015.  The New 2015 MCAT Practice Test is also on sale now for $17.50!  Regular price is $25.00.  Write to let me know which tests you want, then come to my office during office hours to purchase yours.    *Note:  The Official MCAT2015 Sample Test and all of the preparation products for the new exam offered by the AAMC will be available free of charge to students that qualify for assistance under the Fee Assistance Program in 2015 and beyond.

 

FOR FUTURE P.A.’s

1.  Here is a link to the academic requirements tab on Explore Health Careers which outlines general requirements for PA programs. As indicated, requirements vary by school.  http://explorehealthcareers.org/en/Career/19/Physician_Assistant#Tab=Requirements

2.  A possible chance to shadow a P.A.?  I just heard about this avenue for finding a P.A. to shadow.  I’m hoping one or more of you will sign up for it, then let me know if it was useful.  Thanks!  http://pashadowonline.com/register/.

You can join the California Academy of Physician Assistants as a pre-P.A. for $75.  I’m not sure of the benefits of doing this, but perhaps you might find an avenue for locating a P.A. to shadow, if the above service doesn’t turn out to be useful.  http://www.capanet.org/Join.aspx

 

FOR FUTURE PHARMACISTS

1.  This site has a nice free review for the PCAT test.  http://www.mometrix.com/academy/pcat-test/

2.  One of the terrific mentors in our Health Professions Mentor Program sent me this message:  I have been doing a six part radio series on the profession of pharmacy.  We have had pharmacists from all walks of our profession discuss their roles in patient care.  It would probably be of great interest to your pre-pharmacy students to listen to those programs.  They would gain a great deal of insight as to what various pharmacists do in the various fields of health care.  http://wsradio.com/category/lifestyles/health-update-radio/.  Gerry Graf 

Note from Adele:  Dr. Graf is very dedicated to helping students get into pharmacy school.  I’m sure these are excellent programs!
