MS2s study principles of evidence based medicine

Class-Principles of Evidence-based Medicine

In July, second year medical students participated in a class on the principles of evidence based medicine and how to build a literature search.  The class, which was taught by librarians Angela Myatt, M.Sc., Katie Prentice, MSIS, AHIP, Chris Gaspard, MSLS and Dana Whitmire, MSLS, used hands-on instruction and interactive questions to illustrate advanced PubMed features.  Students also learned how to determine if a diagnosis article is appropriate to their needs. Koko Aung, M.D., M.P.H., Associate Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology, was also an instructor on Day 2.
 

 

MS3s learn about medical smartphone applications and mobile databases for clinical support

Eric Foundations 2013Over the course of one week in June, more than 200 rising third year medical students at the UT Health Science Center received instruction and demonstrations of  library resources and medical smartphone applications. With the goal of streamlining day-to-day life in their clerkship years, students learned about a number of mobile databases and smartphone applications that ranged across point of care applications, information organization and productivity applications.

As a way of sharpening their information-seeking skills, each class of about 20 students worked through a series of case-based scenarios.  Before beginning their 3rd year clinical rotations the students must complete the Information Mastery class, which is a part of their Clinical Foundations course.

Clinical Foundations (INTD 3030/Clinical Foundations) was presented by a team of instructors:  Glen Medellin, M.D., Associate Professor of Pediatrics, and Interim Division Chief of Pediatrics; Angela Myatt, Curriculum Liaison Librarian; and Eric Willman, Head of Library Technology.
