The art of medicine: Medical students learn to communicate from the masters

“As medical students, we learn to ask certain questions,” Badashova said. “As you grow as a physician, you learn to let the patient tell you about what is happening in their life. By letting them tell a story, you realize how much more information you can get out of it.” #PennState

Imagine trying to paint a copy of one of Vincent van Gogh’s or Claude Monet's works — without being able to look at it. Instead you can ask a partner short, close-ended questions and do your best. That was one of the challenges students faced as part of the class “Impressionism and the Art of Communication.” The monthlong class, which Dr. Michael Flanagan taught for the first time in January, gives Penn State College of Medicine students a chance...

"This first direct detection of gravitational waves is a breathtaking discovery that will stand out among the major achievements of the 21st-century science because it opens the door to many discoveries that I believe will be made in the coming decade," said Abhay Ashtekar, Director of the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos at Penn State University and Holder of the Eberly Family Chair in Physics at the University.

A Penn State physics professor, Chad Hannah, was part of the #LIGO team.

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime, called gravitational waves, arriving at Earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. This observation confirms a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, published in 1916, and opens an unprecedented new window onto the cosmos.

The spotted #lanternfly, which recently was discovered for the first time in the United States in Berks County, was one of several invasive insect pests discussed by experts during a forum sponsored by U.S. Rep. Glenn "GT" Thompson on Feb. 5. Richard Roush, dean of Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences, gave an overview of problems caused by invasive insects, diseases and weeds. http://ht.ly/Y7Dla
Invasive species, such as gypsy moth and emerald ash borer, have had devastating effects on Pennsylvania's forests, and the keys to combatting these threats are active management, collaboration and research, according to U.S. Rep. Glenn Thompson. Thompson made his remarks during a forum on invasive forest species that he sponsored Feb. 5 on Penn State's University Park campus.

“The class focuses on the discipline of play required for physical comedy, which is quite different than the free play we practice as children. We must learn how to have fun on cue in the most challenging circumstances in spite of our own fear of failure. My students will then take this new discipline and apply it to their respective fields of study, asking, ‘How would my work change if it was a requirement that I have fun doing it in order to succeed?’”
Penn Stater's research on 'play' leads to interactive comedy about saving the world http://ow.ly/Y5yzl
Arts and Design Research Incubator Research Fellow Sandi Carroll's study of the discipline of play led her to create an interactive comedy about saving the world. Her show — "Mission: Implausible!" — will be performed at 8 p.m. Feb. 11-13 at the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center.

Penn State athletes drawn to human service field in College of Education

I think that athletes are drawn to this major because it’s a major that prepares you to work in the human service field, and in sports you have to learn to work well in a group,’ -- Penn State field hockey player Carly Celkos, a junior from Berlin, New Jersey. http://ht.ly/YagiU

“Depending on your view, between 26,000 and 100,000 Americans will die of drug-resistant infections this year. Those infections would have easily been treated by drugs when I was doing my Ph.D. So, in 25 years the game has changed, and the problem is just getting worse."

-- Andrew Read, CIDD director and
Evan Pugh Professor of Biology and Entomology at Penn State http://ow.ly/Y5FIy
To help tackle the complexities of infectious disease dynamics, Penn State has developed an interdisciplinary approach to disease research, bringing together a diverse team of theoreticians and empirical scientists — representing such disparate fields as molecular biology, mathematics, plant pathology, entomology, genomics, statistics, physics, population dynamics and more — under a single umbrella. Now entering its 13th year in existence, Penn S...

As a grad student at the Food Science Department I could not be happier. I cannot talk for the maybe hundreds of other departments, but at lease in our dept and as far as I know in the College of Agriculture, most people are happy with their programs. And then we have State College... awesome city to live if you like small cities...

Penn State is the university for you if you enjoy feeling like a number, being taught by graduate assistants in enormous lecture halls then working as a barista after graduation.
