An Examination Of The Flipped Classroom's Efficacy On Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Students, Archita Chandra, Genevieve Schmitt, Rohini Ganjoo Apr 2019

An Examination Of The Flipped Classroom's Efficacy On Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Students, Archita Chandra, Genevieve Schmitt, Rohini Ganjoo

GW Research Days 2016 - Present

Existing flipped classroom (FC) research focuses on a typical, homogenous student population in terms of age. Research focuses on student satisfaction and perception of the FC to assess if student performance translates to actual perceived learning. Further, a growing number of studies show that outcomes of FC depend on student motivation. This study examines student performance, perception, and satisfaction in the FC in a novel demographic: Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical students. These students, who vary widely in age, experience, and prior knowledge of subject matter, are career changers who become full-time students to complete prerequisite coursework for medical school. Students enrolled in ...

Avoiding Predatory Publishing: The Role Of Librarians In Faculty Education, Ruth Bueter Feb 2019

Avoiding Predatory Publishing: The Role Of Librarians In Faculty Education, Ruth Bueter

Himmelfarb Library Faculty Posters and Presentations

Predatory publishing has become an increasing problem in recent years. Due to a lack of awareness about predatory publishers, faculty authors are at risk of harming their reputations by publishing their research in questionable journals. Librarians can play a vital role in educating faculty authors about this important topic. This session will review a variety of outreach and educational efforts that have been successful in educating faculty about the risks of predatory publishing at Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library including the creation of a comprehensive LibGuide, faculty consultation services, workshops, and social media posts. Future opportunities for outreach will also be ...

Design For Success: Identifying A Process For Transitioning To An Intensive Online Course Delivery Model In Health Professions Education., Paige L Mcdonald, Kenneth J Harwood, Joan T Butler, Karen S Schlumpf, Carson W Eschmann, Daniela Drago

Clinical Research and Leadership Faculty Publications

Intensive courses (ICs), or accelerated courses, are gaining popularity in medical and health professions education, particularly as programs adopt e-learning models to negotiate challenges of flexibility, space, cost, and time. In 2014, the Department of Clinical Research and Leadership (CRL) at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences began the process of transitioning two online 15-week graduate programs to an IC model. Within a year, a third program also transitioned to this model. A literature review yielded little guidance on the process of transitioning from 15-week, traditional models of delivery to IC models, particularly in online learning ...

Create And Teach An Elective? Me? Overcoming Fear Of New Roles, Alexandra Gomes, Laura Abate, Thomas Harrod Oct 2017

Create And Teach An Elective? Me? Overcoming Fear Of New Roles, Alexandra Gomes, Laura Abate, Thomas Harrod

Himmelfarb Library Faculty Posters and Presentations

: Inquiries about new informatics instructional opportunities in the curriculum led to a suggestion that the librarians submit an elective proposal. Despite knowing nothing about the approval process or the responsibilities of being a course director, several librarians accepted the challenge as a learning experience. Developing the proposal included writing the proposal, formally presenting it to two curriculum committees for approval, and then creating the specific lesson plans, identifying associated readings, creating a grading rubric and syllabus, and teaching the specific elective sessions. Librarians developed the elective Introduction to Systematic Reviews and are in the process of developing a second elective


Newborn Care Curriculum: Newborn Medications, Lauren Rechtman, Rebekah Conroy Apr 2017

Newborn Care Curriculum: Newborn Medications, Lauren Rechtman, Rebekah Conroy

E-Learning Modules

Introduction: Based on a 2014 newborn education needs assessment, 39.6% of surveyed pediatric hospitalists expressed interest in receiving more education on newborn medications, and 94% were interested in computer-based learning modules as the method of learning. Thus, this module was designed to serve as a self-study tool or as a tool for small-group teaching.

Methods: Initially designed for pediatric hospitalists, the module can be used for any learner interested in newborn care as it is meant to provide practical applications to the bedside clinician. This module was first implemented as part of the multimodule Newborn Care Curriculum within the ...


A Joint Quality Improvement And High-Value Care Curriculum In A Limited-Resource Setting, Anne Cioletti, Suzanne Sweidan Feb 2017

A Joint Quality Improvement And High-Value Care Curriculum In A Limited-Resource Setting, Anne Cioletti, Suzanne Sweidan

E-Learning Modules

Introduction: Since the release of the Institute of Medicine’s To Err Is Human, there has been an increased focus on quality improvement (QI). QI training is now a requirement monitored via ACGME’s clinical learning environment review committees. Given the significant cost of health care waste, teaching physicians to incorporate costs and value into medical decision making is crucial. Increasing information is available on methods to teach high-value care (HVC), but there is little information on combining HVC with QI. As these topics are intimately linked in efforts to provide effective, efficient care, a joint curriculum is a feasible ...

Developing A Business Plan For Sustaining School Mental Health Services: Three Success Storiess, Donna Behrens, Julia Graham Lear, Olga Acosta Price

Center for Health and Health Care in Schools

Imagine an America where children arrive at their school desks, ready to learn and succeed. They have coping skills to address their everyday worries, concerns and stressors, as well as the more difficult challenges life may present. They have social skills to establish positive relationships with their peers, teachers and parents. They make healthy choices that allow them to focus on their education and prepare for future success. And if a problem arises, they have access to early intervention and treatment. Now, imagine having sustainable funding to make all of this a reality.

Otolaryngology For Internal Medicine: Increasing Exposure To Otolaryngology Using Computer Assisted Instruction, Arielle Thal, Philip Zapanta Mar 2016

Otolaryngology For Internal Medicine: Increasing Exposure To Otolaryngology Using Computer Assisted Instruction, Arielle Thal, Philip Zapanta

GW Research Days 2016 - Present

It has been well identified in previous literature that there is a lack of otolaryngology teaching for general practitioners. There is not currently a standardized curriculum for otolaryngology in undergraduate medical education or during residency for those pursuing a general field such as Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics or Family Medicine. While the need for more exposure to otolaryngology within these fields has been well documented, as 25% of primary care complaints are otolaryngology related, little has been done to identify the best method for educational intervention. Important topics for inclusion in such a curriculum have been identified and methods ...

Medical Student Competency In Wound Care Guidelines, Sophia Akhiyat, Sean Mcnish, Kara S. Couch, Victoria K. Shanmugam

GW Research Days 2016 - Present

Chronic wounds that have failed to heal after 3 months of appropriate wound care affect approximately 6.5 million people in the US with a prevalence of 1% and costs estimated at $25 billion per year. Medical students currently receive limited wound care training, yet to effectively manage chronic wounds, providers must both understand the biology of healing, and also remain up-to-date with wound care guidelines published by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The purpose of this student-led project was to investigate medical students' knowledge and comfort with wound care guidelines.

E-Learning Modules

In an article published in 1993 by Shulman about higher education it was stated that, "Teaching takes practice. It takes feedback. It takes instruction." More and more we are becoming aware of that. There has been increasing recognition of the need to prepare medical students for their future teaching roles as intern/residents and physicians. There have been numerous publications addressing peer teaching in undergraduate education, but sparse literature addressing how medical students co-teach physical diagnosis to pre-clinical students in lieu of faculty. Traditionally in North America, full-time faculty members have assumed the major responsibility for teaching first- and second-year ...
