Office of Student Life to Provide a Cohesive Experience for Students;
Streamlined Reporting for Faculty
What do you get when you combine a holistic admissions
process with an extensive student support program? A comprehensive network that
serves the School of Medicine and its students across the spectrum, providing
guidance, advice and administrative assistance to applicants and students.
Led by Associate Dean Maureen Garrity, PhD, the new Office
of Student Life combines the expertise of the admissions and student affairs
staff and faculty. Now students will work with a cohesive team—from the moment
they express interest in the MD program to graduation and beyond.
When the two departments were separate, students received
what Dean Garrity likens to “specialty” care.
“We’ve transitioned to more of a ‘family medicine’ approach,
caring for the whole student across the continuum of their involvement with the
School of Medicine,” said Garrity.
Dean Garrity believes faculty will benefit from this shared
approach as it relates to the gathering of student data. The Office of Student
Life will serve as a centralized resource for data requests and help guide best
practices for obtaining and ethically using student information.
Now Accepting Applications for the Rymer Endowment Innovation Small Grants
The Academy of Medical Educators is now accepting
applications for its annual small grants program. The grants, typically $3,500
or less, support efforts to create, implement and evaluate innovative medical
education programs and to develop scholarship in medical education (occasionally
grants of up to $5,000 will be considered).
Grant funds are provided through the generous support of The
Rymer Family Endowment, The Office of Faculty Affairs and The Academy of
Medical Educators. Proposals should be no more than five pages in length
and MUST include the following information:
- Brief background describing the importance of
the project and relevance to the University of Colorado School of Medicine
(less than one page)
- Goals or specific aims
- Description of project or study including
population, methods and evaluation strategy
- COMIRB status (if appropriate)
- Brief budget and budget justification
for sustainability after funding is complete (if appropriate)
Note that while all education projects will be considered,
special consideration will be given to projects that relate to School of
Medicine curricular priorities in the areas of longitudinal curriculum,
learning communities, lifelong learning, master educator development and
quality and safety education.
