Views of managed care--a survey of students, residents, faculty, and deans at medical schools in the United States. (1/1174)BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Views of managed care among academic physicians and medical students in the United States are not well known. In 1997, we conducted a telephone survey of a national sample of medical students (506 respondents), residents (494), faculty members (728), department chairs (186), directors of residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics (143), and deans (105) at U.S. medical schools to determine their experiences in and perspectives on managed care. The overall rate of response was 80.1 percent. RESULTS: Respondents rated their attitudes toward managed care on a 0-to-10 scale, with 0 defined as "as negative as possible" and 10 as "as positive as possible." The expressed attitudes toward managed care were negative, ranging from a low mean (+/-SD) score of 3.9+/-1.7 for residents to a high of 5.0+/-1.3 for deans. When asked about specific aspects of care, fee-for-service medicine was rated better than managed care in terms of access (by 80.2 percent of respondents), minimizing ethical conflicts (74.8 percent), and the quality of the doctor-patient relationship (70.6 percent). With respect to the continuity of care, 52.0 percent of respondents preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 29.3 percent preferred managed care. For care at the end of life, 49.1 percent preferred fee-for-service medicine, and 20.5 percent preferred managed care. With respect to care for patients with chronic illness, 41.8 percent preferred fee-for-service care, and 30.8 percent preferred managed care. Faculty members, residency-training directors, and department chairs responded that managed care had reduced the time they had available for research (63.1 percent agreed) and teaching (58.9 percent) and had reduced their income (55.8 percent). Overall, 46.6 percent of faculty members, 26.7 percent of residency-training directors, and 42.7 percent of department chairs reported that the message they delivered to students about managed care was negative. CONCLUSIONS: Negative views of managed care are widespread among medical students, residents, faculty members, and medical school deans. (+info)
The role of curriculum in influencing students to select generalist training: a 21-year longitudinal study. (2/1174)To determine if specific curricula or backgrounds influence selection of generalist careers, the curricular choices of graduates of Mount Sinai School of Medicine between 1970 and 1990 were reviewed based on admission category. Students were divided into three groups: Group 1, those who started their first year of training at the School of Medicine; Group 2, those accepted with advanced standing into their third year of training from the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, a five-year program developed to select and produce students likely to enter primary care fields; and Group 3, those accepted with advanced standing into the third year who spent the first two years at a foreign medical school. All three groups took the identical last two years of clinical training at the School of Medicine. These were no significant differences with respect to initial choice of generalist training programs among all three groups, with 46% of the total cohort selecting generalist training. Of those students who chose generalist programs, 58% in Group 1, 51% in Group 2, and 41% in Group 3 remained in these fields rather than progressing to fellowship training. This difference was significant only with respect to Group 3. However, when an analysis was performed among those students providing only primary care as compared to only specialty care, there were no significant differences. Analysis by gender revealed women to be more likely to select generalist fields and remain in these fields without taking specialty training (P < .0001). Differentiating characteristics with respect to choosing generalist fields were not related to either Part I or Part II scores on National Board Examinations or selection to AOA. However, with respect to those specific specialties considered quite competitive (general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and ophthalmology), total test scores on Part I and Part II were significantly higher than those of all other students. The analysis indicated that, despite the diverse characteristics of students entering the third year at the School of Medicine, no one group produced a statistically greater proportion of generalists positions than any other, and academic performance while in medical school did not have a significant influence on whether a student entered a generalist field.

Bridging the gap between managed care and academic medicine: an innovative fellowship. (3/1174)Numerous challenges face academic medicine in the era of managed care. This environment is stimulating the development of innovative educational programs that can adapt to changes in the healthcare system. The U.S. Quality Algorithms Managed Care Fellowship at Jefferson Medical College is one response to these challenges. Two postresidency physicians are chosen as fellows each year. The 1-year curriculum is organized into four 3-month modules covering such subjects as biostatistics and epidemiology, medical informatics, the theory and practice of managed care, managed care finance, integrated healthcare systems, quality assessment and improvement, clinical parameters and guidelines, utilization management, and risk management. The fellowship may serve as a possible prototype for future post-graduate education. (+info)
Impact factors: use and abuse in biomedical research. (4/1174)Impact factors are increasingly being used as measures in the process of academic evaluation; however, the pitfalls associated with such use of impact factors are not always appreciated. Impact factors have limited use as criteria in determining the quality of scientific research. Classical anatomists may be actively discriminated against if journal impact factors are used as measures of scientific merit in comparison with colleagues in more popular or faster-moving disciplines such as molecular biology. Research evaluation based on citation rates and journal impact factors is inappropriate, unfair, and an increasing source of frustration. (+info)
Establishing radiologic image transmission via a transmission control protocol/Internet protocol network between two teaching hospitals in Houston. (5/1174)The technical and management considerations necessary for the establishment of a network link between computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) networks of two geographically separated teaching hospitals are presented. The University of Texas Medical School at Houston Department of Radiology provides radiology residency training at its primary teaching hospital and at a second county-run hospital located approximately 12 miles away. A direct network link between the two hospitals was desired to permit timely consultative services to residents and professional colleagues. The network link was established by integrating the county hospital free-standing imaging network into the network infrastructure of the Medical School and the main teaching hospital. Technical issues involved in the integration were reassignment of internet protocol (IP) addresses, determination of data transmission protocol compatibilities, proof of connectivity and image transmission, transmission speeds and network loading, and management of the new network. These issues were resolved in a planned stepwise fashion and despite the fact that the system has a rate-limiting T1 segment between the county hospital and the teaching hospital the transmission speed was deemed suitable. The project has proven successful and can provide a guide for planning similar projects elsewhere. It has in fact made possible several new services for the teaching and research activities of the department's faculty and residents, which were not envisaged before the implementation of this connection.

Patterns of use and satisfaction with a university-based teleradiology system. (6/1174)The Radiology Department at the University of Arizona has been operating a teleradiology program for almost 2 years. The goal of this project was to characterize the types of cases reviewed, to assess radiologists' satisfaction with the program, and to examine case turnaround times. On average, about 50 teleradiology cases are interpreted each month. Computed tomography (CT) cases are the most common type of case, constituting 65% of the total case volume. Average turnaround time (to generate a "wet read" once a case is received) is about 1.3 hours. Image quality was rated as generally good to excellent, and the user interface as generally good. Radiologists' confidence in their diagnostic decisions is about the same as reading films in the clinical environment. The most common reason for not being able to read teleradiology images is poor image quality, followed by lack of clinical history and not enough images. (+info)
Chaos reigns at medical schools over hepatitis B testing. (7/1174)Health Canada guidelines require that all physicians be immunized against hepatitis B--a policy that the CMA opposes. Where does that leave medical students? (+info)
Computing for the next millennium. (8/1174)Computer technology has changed our lives, even that of physicians. In a few years time, a physician can expect to have a new tool by the bedside: a hand-held computer small enough to put into a pocket and powerful enough for all everyday activities, including highly specialized and sophisticated activities such as prevention of adverse drug reactions. The Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet) was crucial in bringing the benefits of the information technology to the Croatian scientists. At the Split University School of Medicine, we started the Virtual Medical School project, which now also includes the Mostar University School of Medicine in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina. Virtual Medical School aims to promote free dissemination of medical knowledge by creating medical education network as a gateway to the Internet for health care professionals. (+info)

Overall, the college received $167.5 million for research initiatives during its 1999 fiscal year that ended last June 30. The UI as a whole received $114.9 million in funding from the NIH in fiscal 1999.. Dean Robert Kelch and Dr. Allyn Mark, associate dean for research development, deserve congratulations for their extraordinary leadership of the colleges research enterprise, said UI President Mary Sue Coleman.

Medical school applicants from ethnic minority groups: identifying if and when they are disadvantaged | The BMJ
The study considered all subjects who applied through the Universities Central Council on Admissions in 1990 to study medicine in October 1991 at one of three medical schools of the University of London (St Marys Hospital Medical School, University College and Middlesex School of Medicine (now University College London Medical School), and the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guys and St Thomass Hospitals) or to the medical school of the University of Sheffield or University of Newcastle upon Tyne. These English medical schools were chosen because jointly they were geographically disparate and received a high proportion of all applications to British medical schools. Since each applicant makes five university applications, of which typically only one is to the five schools in our study, the other applications on the form allow the indirect study of selection at the remaining 23 medical schools in the United Kingdom. Final destinations of candidates, basic background information, and ...
Skeptical Scalpel: Suboptimal Outcomes for Medical School Matriculants
But the most interesting part of this paper is that 178 matriculants in the group who started medical school from 1994-1999 had to be excluded from the study because they were still in medical school. In case you dont get it, this means they had been in medical school for at least 10 years. [Medical school usually takes four years to complete.] I was apparently prescient in my blog post [rant] on medical education of August 10, 2010 in which I marveled that I once had received an application for a residency training position from a student who had been in medical school for 10 years, and I speculated that it must be very difficult to flunk out of medical school. This was confirmed by the prematriculation variables study which states that only 1049 (1.2%) of students withdrew or were dismissed from medical school for academic reasons ...
MSU American Medical Student Association: 1/20 Meeting-Dr. Peggy Davis and the Pathway to Medical School
Your first year of medical school consists of lots of science classes. Anatomy and Biochemistry are the two "big" classes your first year. If you can get through these, you can probably get through the rest of your first year of medical school. In your second year of medical school, you become more involved. You begin learning basic clinical practices. You begin clinical rotations in your third year of medical school. Everyone follows a schedule, but you are allowed an elective so you can try to find your passion. In your fourth year of medical school, you begin to look at residency programs so that you can get a match! This is your most flexible year of medical school, and it will likely be your most enjoyable one as well. ...
Gov. Dayton, blue-ribbon committee call for investment in U Medical School | Medical School - University of Minnesota
A blue-ribbon committee created by Gov. Mark Dayton in August has made budget and policy recommendations to the state Legislature aimed at strengthening the U of M Medical Schools position as a national leader in medical training, research, and care.The recommendations support two primary goals: improving the Medical Schools national standing by expanding health care research focused on the states health priorities, and strengthening its educational programs to ensure that medical students and residents are prepared to meet Minnesotas future physician workforce needs.To help achieve those goals, Gov. Daytons proposed FY2016-17 budget calls for a $30 million investment in the Medical School to expand the schools research, improve its National Institutes of Health (NIH) ranking from 30th to 20th in the next five to eight years, and expand physician training programs that benefit rural and underserved communities.That investment would enable the Medical School to hire up to 50 top researchers over

The attractions of medicine: the generic motivations of medical school applicants in relation to demography, personality and...
The motivational and other factors used by medical students in making their career choices for specific medical specialities have been looked at in a number of studies in the literature. There are however few studies that assess the generic factors which make medicine itself of interest to medical students and to potential medical students. This study describes a novel questionnaire that assesses the interests and attractions of different aspects of medical practice in a varied range of medical scenarios, and relates them to demographic, academic, personality and learning style measures in a large group of individuals considering applying to medical school. A questionnaire study was conducted among those attending Medlink, a two-day conference for individuals considering applying to medical school for a career in medicine. The main outcome measure was the Medical Situations Questionnaire, in which individuals ranked the attraction of three different aspects of medical practise in each of nine detailed,

Now that steel construction is complete, the buildings permanent roof will be added. More than 300 windows are being installed, and starting this summer, workers will install the buildings outer envelope, including its terra cotta skin, which was chosen for the way it complements the regions rich architectural heritage. The building design was produced by HOK, a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm that was selected for the project by UB in 2012 after winning an international competition to develop the best design concepts for the new medical school building.. Every day, roughly 300 workers are employed at the construction site, the largest construction project ever in the universitys 170-year history. That number is expected to grow in the coming months as workers in the trades are employed to finish the buildings interior..

Estimating the Impact of State Manpower Policy: A Case Study of Reducing Medical School Enrollments | Journal of Health...
Perceptions of an impending oversupply of physicians have prompted proposals to reduce medical school enrollments in a number of states. Most of these states are also concerned with improving the specialty and geographic distribution of their medical manpower. The present study provides estimates of the effects of reduced numbers of in-state medical school graduates upon the future supply of physicians in Texas, and examines the medical school origin, medical specialty, and practice location of selected groups of Texas physicians. The results suggest that in Texas enrollment reductions would have no significant impact on physician supply over the next 15 years, and might actually prove counterproductive in altering physician distribution. The analysis of Texas data illuminates the unintended consequences likely to accompany a policy option that has been widely embraced by state officials largely on the basis of its intuitive appeal. ...
Skeptical Scalpel: A medical student says to abandon the match
I think the real frustration expressed by the author stems from a lack of choices arbitrated by the match. There are about 40,000 medical school applicants each year for 19,000 MD spots (see AMCAS data, 2013). The DO data is separate. The difference here is that medical school applicants often have several schools to choose among after shelling out $$ for traveling and interviews, holding several offers and with a final date to decide on one school to attend. While this system arguably is less efficient, with some schools only filling in their last couple of spots within days of starting medical school, somehow (miraculously) those 19,000+ MD spots are always filled. Roths Match system isnt necessary to fill residency positions - we do it every year in a non-match system with medical school applicants. I think the author of the Forbes article laments the lack of choices among residency applicants - just as other professions often have many job offers (along with the free market opportunity ...

Are the 'U.S. News' medical school rankings for primary care education relevant?
The U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings inspire discussion and marketing, but do they actually reflect quality differences between schools when it comes to medical education in primary care? Researchers at the UC Davis School of Medicine are believed to be the first to take on that question by analyzing the primary care rankings from 2009 through 2012, reconstructing scores and proposing alternative measurements.

As a result of the medical school admissions course of has turn into so aggressive, it has by no means been more difficult getting accepted to medical college as it is as we speak. It stands to cause that medical colleges care - notably medical schools that depend on private donation to fund enlargement and training. The Caribbean faculties do not need a strong program like American faculties. Its essential choose a college on the basis of the program you wish to pursue and never on the idea of what theyve on offer.. Although their future patients will not be involved with the place the medical doctors learned their commerce, (however slightly, only that they know their stuff!), medical students know that when applying for residencies it does make a difference where youre coming from..

UC Davis launches new program to help students navigate medical school: UC Davis Health System
Andreea Seritan, pictured left, with a client.. Posted August 15, 2012.

A Patient's Tale - LIFE MATTERS FOR DISABLED AMERICANS
The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease." William Osler. An Educator: I have had the privilege of being a medical school educator since 1987 (28 years). The work includes lecturing (to a class of 180 students), small group facilitator (36 students), course management/administration, and curriculum development (our new Immunology and Hematology courses).. A Patient: An important aspect in many medical school courses is an interview/presentation of a patient, usually accompanied by the patients physician. Dr. McNeil embraced the idea about me being a patient during her Neurology-related Blocks. For the first time in my teaching career, I would be the patient. This presentation took place twice: first, in our current 2nd year medical school curriculum in the MS-2 "Brain and Behavior" course (January, 2015); and in our new 1st year medical school curriculum in the MS-1 "Neurology" block (May, 2015)..

Is Medicine the Field of Dreams? | IPR blog
David Harrison is a Research Fellow in the Research Department of Medical Education at UCL Medical School.. Recent announcements of five new medical schools in England, and the Government pledging to train 5,000 more doctors by 2020, comes in response to an NHS described as critically short of doctors, and recognition of the fact that the number of GPs has plummeted in recent years, particularly in many of the deprived areas of the country. These are drivers for new policies to deal with shortages in the NHS workforce.. The Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, pledged that 1,500 new training places would help make the UK "self-sufficient in doctors" by 2025. Given that medical school is demanding, and it takes at least ten years to become a GP, this is no quick fix. But is creating more places enough to make to real change and a UK "self-sufficient in doctors"?. Certainly there is belief that it is:. …allocating these new places has also allowed the expert panel to prioritise new ...

Mothers in Medicine: October 2015
We decided to start our family in my 3rd year of medical school. I should preface this by summarizing that I am the eldest of three and always dreamed of going to medical school, however, mostly beginning in college, my mom deeply disapproved of all my decisions, which in her eyes were obstacles to finishing medical school. First, she disapproved of my significant other (now husband), especially when I decided to move overseas with him to work in a start-up company straight out of college rather than go directly to medical school. During medical school, I did research for 2 years, which in my parents minds, was a distraction while my husband finished his PhD. When I told my parents we were expecting, I knew they wouldnt be happy, but I did not expect that they wouldnt speak to me for 2 months. When my mom finally called, there was extensive lecturing over mainly the financial aspect- how irresponsible were we to bring a child into the world on a post-doc salary while paying medical school ...
The Beginning Of The End Of The War On Medicine - FROT
A new breed of medical school emerged to teach future doctors how to utilize these new diagnostic tools, medicines, and operating procedures to defeat the external invaders of the body. Doctors became thoroughly convinced that most diseases were caused by germs, bacteria, viruses, or rogue cells that needed to be cut out, killed, or controlled by these new medical breakthroughs.. Natural medicine was dismissed as being outdated and unscientific. Medical schools stopped teaching this form of medicine and medical licenses were given only to those who graduated from the new medical schools that had been established across the world.. Naturopathic doctors were branded as quacks, as were chiropractors, nutritionists, acupuncturists, and all of the other so-called natural medical practitioners.. But in the late 1940s and early 1950s, proponents of natural medicine started to push back. Under the unofficial leadership of Linus Pauling, a small group of scientists and doctors began treating ...

Maintaining a Long Distance Relationship in Med School - Funny catchy headline for dating site
Monday, June 16, medical school and dating One of the most popular google searches that brings people to my blog is something along the lines of "dating in medical school" based on this post I wrote a year ago. I figured a year, and many many experiences later, that it was time to write an update to that post. So for a bit of my own background: I dated a guy for 5. We went through the whole process of applying, starting, doing the pre-clinical years, and all of his third year together.. At the beginning of his fourth year, I moved four states away so that I could start medical school. Three months in, we mutually agreed to end our relationship. While we had some great years together, ending that relationship needed to happen. I wont blame it on medical school itself, as we had our problems before my moving, but I would say that overall, medical school changed our relationship.. We werent on the same life path, didnt want the same things, and overall werent a good match anymore. Three ...
Widening access to UK medical education for under-represented socioeconomic groups: modelling the impact of the UKCAT in the...
After controlling for factors such as UKCAT and academic performance we estimated that non-white applicants were still around 40% less likely to receive a conditional offer from a medical school using UKCAT in borderline cases than a candidate reporting their ethnicity as white (table 5); an almost identical finding to that reported by a study of ethnic minority applicants to medical school in 1990.27 A subsequent study from candidates for admission from 1996 and 1997 also reported a relative disadvantage for applicants from ethnic minority groups, although the authors noted variation between individual medical schools unrelated to the overall number of non-white applicants to each institution. The present results from the separate models were largely echoed by the pooled analysis, which directly compared the three types of medical school. Some authors have cited such findings as evidence of institutional discrimination.28 Although UCAS does not pass on information of ethnicity to universities ...

Public medical schools graduated higher proportions of primary care physicians than their private counterparts did.. Schools with substantial National Institutes of Health research funding generally produced fewer primary care physicians and physicians practicing in underserved areas, and thus had lower social mission scores overall.. Several large research institutions (notably the University of Minnesota and University of Washington) defied this trend, ranking in the top quartile for overall social mission score.. Historically black schools had the highest social mission rankings.. Osteopathic schools produced more primary care physicians than allopathic schools but trained fewer minorities..

The reliance on unclaimed cadavers for anatomical teaching by medical schools in Africa - UEA Digital Repository
The study of gross Anatomy through the use of cadaveric dissections in medical schools is an essential part of the comprehensive learning of human Anatomy, and unsurprisingly, 90% of the surveyed medical schools in Africa used cadaveric dissections. Donated cadavers now make up 80% of the total cadavers in North American medical schools and all the cadavers used for dissection in the United Kingdom are donated. Because the sources of cadavers used in Africa are not clearly known, a questionnaire to gather information on cadavers used at medical schools was designed from the relevant literature and was sent by electronic mail to 123 Anatomy lecturers in 23 African countries (48 medical schools). Fourteen lecturers from 14 medical schools in ten countries responded to the questionnaires. The results indicate that, in most countries, the cadavers are unclaimed bodies from the hospitals and prisons, and the bodies of dead bandits. In South Africa and Zimbabwe, the donations are mostly from the white ...

An inventory of biostatistics teaching in American and Canadian Medical Schools. - Semantic Scholar
During the academic year 1969-70 a detailed inventory was conducted of biostatistics teaching in American and Canadian medical schools. Approximately two-thirds of schools required a separate, distinct biostatistics course. This report describes these courses, their content, and the characteristics of the individuals who taught the courses and their perception of the medical students reaction to biostatistics. A more recent survey covering the academic year 1973-74 revealed that the situation had not changed; slightly more than two-thirds of respondents indicated that exposure to biostatistics was required in their schools curricula.

Medical School Admissions: Striving for fairness despite "ill-designed" tools - Undergraduate School of Medicine Blog
February is, easily, the most difficult month of the year for many involved in undergraduate medical education, including Deans, admissions committees and administrative staff. This is not simply because of the long and dreary Canadian winter. Its during this month that letters go out to applicants for admission indicating whether theyve advanced to the next stage of the process: the on-site interview. All those involved in the selection process struggle with the knowledge that, for every letter that brings welcome relief and encouragement, several will result in bewildered disappointment. Two brief applicant profiles may serve to illustrate the issue.. Jessica is a bright, articulate and engaging young woman who, for as long as she or anyone can remember, has wanted to be a Doctor. She graduated from high school at the top of her class, with numerous awards recognizing not only her academic accomplishments, but also student leadership and community involvement.

Current teaching of paediatric musculoskeletal medicine within UK medical schools--a need for change. - Semantic Scholar
OBJECTIVES Doctors involved in the assessment of children have low confidence in their clinical skills within paediatric musculoskeletal (pMSK) medicine and demonstrate poor performance in clinical practice. Core paediatric clinical skills are taught within undergraduate child health teaching but the extent and content of pMSK clinical skills teaching within medical schools is currently unknown. The aim of this study was to describe current pMSK teaching content within child health teaching at UK medical schools. METHODS Structured questionnaires were sent to child health leads at all medical schools within the UK delivering clinical teaching (n = 30). RESULTS Child health teaching was delivered in all responding medical schools (n = 23/30) predominantly by paediatricians (consultants and senior trainees) and within secondary care. pMSK clinical skills teaching was included in 9/23, delivered predominantly within lectures and featured uncommonly in assessment (6/23, 26%). pMSK clinical skills were

Tackling Zika: how bacteria can be a Trojan horse in fight against disease-bearing insects - Electronic Journal of Medical...
Professor Paul Dyson of Swansea University Medical School and Dr Miranda Whitten of Swansea University College of Science are leading this work. Professor Dyson has just returned from a research visit to Brazil, where the Zika virus is most prevalent. He has also previously used this technology to develop a pesticide-free weapon against insects that cause sleeping sickness and damage crops, research which was funded by the Gates Foundation.. Professor Paul Dyson of Swansea University Medical School said:. New approaches are urgently needed to reduce the global burden of pest insects and to investigate insect biology and disease transmission.. This technology allows us to target insects much more effectively than conventional pesticides, and without their side-effects. Using bacteria as a Trojan horse gets round some of the problems in delivering RNAi to the insect.. It is a significant advance. It can help us to tackle some of the insects and crop pests that have such a devastating impact on ...

Age Distribution of NIH Principal Investigators and Medical School Faculty | NIH Extramural Nexus
First some background: I am faculty at a small, teaching-intensive state school with moderate to poor internal support of research (depending primarily upon fluctuating state funds). I started as an Assistant Professor at age 31 and got my first external grant from a private foundation in my second year as a faculty member. Though funded for most of my career, I didnt get my first NIH grant (an R21) until I was 38 and my first R01 was awarded last year at age 47. I have served as a grant reviewer for USDA, NIH and several private and European state funding organizations for the last 15 years.. As a reviewer I have not seen any evidence of age bias but a GREAT emphasis on issues related to grantsmanship. I have watched several young colleagues at my own and other institutions fail to secure extramural funding and, thus, fail to be awarded tenure. The MOST common mistake they made was not taking full advantage of help from more experienced, grant-funded senior colleagues. In some cases, the ...

Urbanization and physician maldistribution: a longitudinal study in Japan | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
A relative shortage of physicians in rural areas has been reported over the last few decades in Japan [1-5]. In the 1970s, the Japanese government introduced the policy of establishing at least one medical school per prefecture and increasing the total number of medical students. By the mid-1980s, the number of medical graduates, or newly certified physicians, per year had doubled from about 4000 to 8000. In 1984, the Ministry of Health and Welfare (now the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and hereafter MHLW) announced that the targeted ratio of physicians per population had been achieved. As a result, beginning in 1985, medical school admissions were reduced to prevent a future oversupply of physicians. In 1993, the numbers of those entering medical schools fell to 7725, or 7.7% fewer than in 1984. Since the target reduction was 10% from the number admitted in 1984, the cutback in entering medical students continued. In 1997, a cabinet meeting approved this further reduction. In 2007, ...
Article misrepresented medical schools
A letter to the editor: The Sept. 10 article by Janet Lorin on Caribbean medical schools contains many mischaracterizations about our institutions, but perhaps the most egregious is an outright omission of a critical academic outcome: The 96 percent first-time pass rate achieved by students at the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine and Ross University School of Medicine on Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Exam in 2012. This is the same rate posted by U.S. schools.
New Drug Combo Targets Multiple Cancers
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Kyushu University Medical School say a novel combination of a specific sugar molecule with a pair of cell-killing drugs prompts a wide variety of cancer cell types to kill themselves, a process called apoptosis or programmed cell death.. The findings are reported online in the journal Cancer Research.. "The goal of targeted therapy is to stop the growth of cancerous cells while doing little or no harm to healthy tissue," said Guy Perkins, PhD, associate project scientist at the Center for Research in Biological Systems at UC San Diego. "Cancer researchers are always looking for new therapies to target a variety of cancers and kill tumor cells in various stages of development.". Unfortunately, added co-author Ryuji Yamaguchi, PhD, senior researcher at Kyushu University Medical School in Fukuoka, Japan, "even the best new drugs seem to be limited to specific cancer types and too often tumor cells develop resistance to ...
Alumni Blog: Linc Sonenshein and Rich Losick - MIT Department of Biology
At Princeton, Rich had done thesis research in the lab of Charles Gilvarg, studying the synthesis of lysine oligopeptides in E. coli; Mike and Linc worked in the lab of Donald Helinski on the genetics of colicin synthesis. Our backgrounds in microbiology research served as inducements to continue studying microbes at MIT and throughout our careers. Indeed, Lincs PhD thesis research with Luria on the bacterium Bacillus subtilis and its ability to produce spores sparked a collaboration with Rich that greatly influenced both their subsequent careers. Yet another lifelong collaboration emerged when Linc married another member of our class, Gail Entner, who worked with Ned Holt and went on to become a professor at Boston University Medical School and Tufts Medical School. Mike Newlon also married a classmate, Carol Shaw, who was also in the Holt lab and has been a professor at the University of Iowa and Rutgers Medical School.. Linc and Rich are proud to have trained many students (six of whom went ...

Physician, Help Thyself: Management Positions Available | Managed Care magazine
As executive search consultants, we speak daily with physicians at every stage of their careers, from new medical school graduates to seasoned practitioners. Many are considering a change to management. Our experience includes hundreds of personal interviews each year with physician executives, and our firm recorded more than 60 successful searches in 1996 for senior executives who are physicians. From this, we know that the transition is not for everyone.. Based on our experience in the field, we offer important points that will affect the success of your career change:. Mobility increases marketability. Physicians often remain in a single locale throughout their careers because they like the familiarity and continuity. But executives must be willing to go where the best opportunities exist, accepting the inconvenience as necessary to success.. Thick skin is essential. Executives must make many tough calls - for example, closing services, downsizing, allocating limited resources - and be ...

Medicine and Social Justice: January 2010
The issue can be complicated for insiders. Deborah Powell MD, former dean of the medical school at the University of Minnesota and an advocate for policies that encourage restraint, herself accepted a paid position on the board of Pepsico. Many believe that her subsequent firing was due, in part, to negative publicity from this action. (U of M medical school reorganizes; dean out by summer, Tim Post, Minnesota Public Radio, January 29, 2009). The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has recently developed a "corporate partnership" with Coca-Cola that has received a great deal of criticism both within and outside the family medicine community - criticism that has not resulted in the AAFP ending the relationship. Which is a greater conflict of interest for physicians and medical school faculty members - alliances with companies, such as Coke and Pepsi, whose products are clearly detrimental to health, or sitting on the boards of corporations that make medical and pharmaceutical products? I ...
Medical School Advice
Acceptance to graduate or medical school is a competitive process that entails a careful and selective review of applicant qualities including GPA, scores on standardized admissions tests (GRE or MCAT) letters of reference and personal statement. Training for a PhD takes commitment and effort by both the trainer and the trainee. Evidence of such a commitment as well as ability is a must for any PhD candidate to be competitive in the eyes of the Admissions Committee of the Endocrinology & Reproductive Physiology Program. Some candidates choose instead to apply for an MS but it has been our general experience that applicants seeking an MS degree as a terminal degree are often difficult to place. One reason is many faculty feel the 1-2 years spent in training cannot be justified if the candidate then leaves in the end of the second year. Another reason is that some funding to the program can only be used for PhD candidates and the training goals of the ERP Program T32 from NICHD can also only ...
