#UofUMedStudentLife

What happens to people with chronic health problems that make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to qualify for subsidized insurance in the insurance marketplace?  Within the #healthyutah program, this gap is known as the “donut hole”.  We recently joined med students here at #UUSOM as they filmed a visual representation of those living within the “donut hole” using 5500 donut holes.  Each donut hole represents 10 people in Utah living in the Medicaid gap.  This visual piece will be part of a documentary that will be presented to tell their stories and ask representatives to cover the gap as the Utah Legislature meets to discuss implementing a gap coverage program.

Right now, newly graduated medical students across the country are moving to where their internships and residencies will be. There will be many orientations, meetings, and computer trainings.
Since most residency programs start on July 1, is it inherently more dangerous for patients in the hospital during this time? Are there more medical errors in the month of July? Is the "July Effect" real?
You’re a critically ill patient headed to the hospital on July 5. Do you really face a greater risk of serious medical error—or even mortality—than someone who entered the hospital only one month earlier?

A new podcast is available on iTunes!

“I know that I have a finite amount of time once I get out into practice and I really want it to matter.”

What makes former equities and bond trader on the ‪#‎NYSE‬ (New York Stock Exchange) and the owner of a finance company decide to pursue a career in medicine? For Kim, a third year medical student here at ‪#‎UUSOM‬, her mother’s cancer diagnosis became the premise for her transformation into a non-traditional medical student. We talk about the challenges older student’s face, the advantages in being one, and what her focus has been throughout her first three years of medical school.

So head on over to iTunes, look for "Talking Admissions and Med Student Life". It will be Episode 54!

New ‪#‎MCAT‬ scoring requirements:

After receiving the results from ‪#‎AMCAS‬ for the 13,000 applicants that took the new #MCAT in April, we have established the minimum scores we will accept for the new test. A score of 123 in each of the four sections must be achieved to meet our minimum #MCAT requirements.

The minimum acceptable score for each section of the 2013, 2014 and January, 2015 #MCAT is 7. The average overall score is 30. For tests taken in 2013, 2014 and January, 2015 only, the best score for each section will be considered. If the test is taken after April 1, 2015, only the scores from the latest test will be accepted.

#UofUMedStudentLife

Camp Neuro is a program run by local medical students in 18 cities nationwide.  The #UUSOM is a host to this program that introduces high school students interested in a career in medicine or psychology to real world experience.  Attendees of this 1-week summer day camp are given an opportunity to learn from experts in the field while focusing on care and maintenance of the mind and brain.  We recently joined our medical students in a session as they taught basic neuroanatomy and oversaw a pig brain dissection.
