Aultman Hospital – Undergraduate Medical Education Program (Ohio Medical Education)



the undergraduate program is alive and well it's a robust program every year we have between 200 and 300 students who walk through our doors the m1 neo med students come to Canton to learn a general adult physical exam which I help to teach them with a clinical nurse instructor the m2 students from neo med come down to Canton to learn several things including seminar which is interviewing physical exam techniques and clinical discussions where they learn how to write soap notes and formulate assessment and plans the clerkship program at Ullman is a six-week clerkship designed for third year medical students it is a comprehensive rotation that involves inpatient medicine outpatient medicine procedure workshop exposure to hospice and palliative care since I'm the site director for the collection my goal is to simply have my students being and the amends of what internal medicine is understand it enjoy it and maybe not know all of it within the nine weeks that they spend with us but enough to be able to use it for the rest of their lives our undergraduate program here that we have the clerkship for the third-year students what we try to do is give them a snapshot of Pediatrics now the students are here for weeks there's a lot to Pediatrics and students come at all different levels of experience and knowledge about pediatrics so on their first day we do a bit of an assessment to see what that knowledge base is just kind of informally and then we structure the next four weeks that based on them but their interests are with some things that basic things that need to learn and try to get them into that den of those four weeks feel like they can comfortably examine a pediatric patient think about pediatric issues and a little bit different way and and hopefully enjoy many actors doctor deals in my students rotate clinically they get time within our ob/gyn ambulatory clinic they also have time that they spend on the verse center labor delivery I also have part of the rotation of doing the gynecology portion of the rotation is spent in surgical alarms and following patients each week the students engage in what we call PPI cons which is basically difficult research paper and represent if it appears and to myself and the purpose of that is to teach the students how to look at primary source evidence I'm going to critique it as opposed to secondary source which is a textbook etc we saw a digestive information and synthesize there but kind of put them in touch with their or information to learn what we do here for the third-year clerks is provide them an active clinical rotation which means having to work on multiple at multiple sites inpatient outpatient partial hospitalization program and outpatient as well as consultation liaisons criteria so that is multiple areas of Psychiatry which they go through in a very active and challenging rotation so these students are supposed to not just follow us or shadow us all day they are actively involved in learning and taking care of patients directly my role as Berkshire director is to oversee the clerkship itself and its curriculum assign medical students in their third year to communications in the department surgery for undergrads I arranged for their usually it's a four-week rotation I have an associate Pat France and who assists in that she's helps with the scheduling aspect and we make sure that they are scheduled through into the emergency department and I get an experience that's broad and type things we want people to see an emergency department all right chose to go to Northeast Ohio Medical University because I was born and raised in Canton and it's a local medical school and they have an accelerated program where you can you know apply right out of high school and do your undergraduate degree and less amount of time so I thought that was an advantage too you know I knew medical schools that I wanted to do so why not go that route and be able to stay close to home and a great area you'll come in in the morning you just signed a few patients as far as how many you do is kind of up to you they give you the freedom to take as many or as much as or as little as you can handle and you go and see the patients and just kind of check up on them around and ask the appropriate questions write a note c.j on the computer sometimes written and a resident will follow you and kind of talk over what they thought and look over your note and at that time you just kind of learn what was the most appropriate thing to do what you should have done or what you did well and you just go from there
