Dr. Novak called meeting to order at 7:30 am.
Motion made to approve January minutes, motion seconded, and approved.
- Phase 1: Aris reported that things are going well. 1st year student Michel Michelot reported that he has adjusted well to the 1st year round of exams.
- Zumberg reported that 2nd years are doing well. Things he’s looking into are a handful of lectures this year to see if students notice any difference the other thing are the labs are done every year some students do most of the work on their own and others with assistance. The required attendance was dropped from 90 to 75% and Dr. Zumberg is considering dropping it to zero attendance. Dr. Gulig suggested coordinating with Dr. Zumberg since he has more labs in FMI and are always concerned about the purpose of required attendance in the labs.
- Phase 2: Hatch reported that in lieu of the annual retreat instead opted to go to Jacksonville to discuss the Regional Medical Campus proposal. Students are adjusting well he has no major changes to report.
- Grade Submissions: Novak was pleased to report that the students are doing much better than anticipated. The clerkship directors have agreed to now go from the six weeks which are the LCME requirements to 5 weeks with the hope that directors will submit grades within 4 weeks.
- Matriculating Student Questionnaire: Lynch provided a detailed summary of the student survey information on the 2019 Matriculation questionnaire sent out yearly by the AAMC. The information collected pertains to student’s demographical data, MCAT, stress levels, MD school acceptance/choice/financing, parent income, and secondary application/interview. In conclusion, UF matriculating classes are similar to the national average with a few distinctions UF have more multiple acceptances, younger students, less perceived stress, and Faculty mentorship to mention a few differences.
- CSE update: Stalvey presented updates to the CSE. Dr. Stalvey reviewed the exams and developed an individualized remediation lesson plan for each student including review of exam expectations, peer reviews, reflections work sheets, and students then meet with Dr. Stalvey or Clerkship Director to discuss lessons plans. If the student passes with concern (PWC) then an individualized remediation plan is recommended for students to include clinical skills refresher courses, three 4-station mini-CSE, development of individual learning plans, and meeting individually with Dr. Stalvey after each CSE exam. The future goals are for continued collaboration with ICM 1-4 directors, increased collaborations with clerkship directors, end of medical school assessment, and 100% Step 2 CS pass rate.
- Geriatrics Clerkship proposal: Bensadon discussed how the Family Medicine clerkship will integrate Geriatrics content into their clerkship. This proposal is for one year for the class of 2021 only. This is a pass/fail course that’s required in the 4th year and is proposed to be a 2 week course (decreased from 4) and will allow the 4th year students two more weeks of electives. Dr. Novak requested a syllabus on the Geriatric Clerkship from Dr. Bensadon outlining the course objectives. Motion made to move forward with the 2 week Geriatrics Clerkship proposal, motion seconded, and approved.
