Downstate's COM Integrative Curriculum Design Unique and Innovative:
Drs. Lee Eisner and Rikki Ovitsh presented a snapshot of our CS/MK integrative approach of Head and Neck at the NEGEA (Northeast regional meeting for the AAMC) titled: "A Multimodal Active Learning Approach to Integrating Biomedical Knowledge with Clinical Skills Development of the Head and Neck Region".
Not only did I have people coming over to me throughout the day impressed with how we actually accomplished the integration and wanted to speak with me about it to bring it back to their institution, we actually won for "Best Short Communication Presentation for Undergraduate Medical Education" out of all the other schools there, including our friends in the city. The real message here is that we are accomplishing novel things at SUNY Downstate and our new curriculum can be the platform to continue getting us some well-deserved national recognition.
Congratulations to Lee and Rikki!
