The UMHS LMS Roll Out Extends to Clinical Students
A big WELCOME
goes out to all UMHS Clinical Students
as they all now join the rest of our UMHS students in utilizing the new UMHS Learning Management System (LMS).
The standardized UMHS Clinical Sciences Curriculum
, developed by the UMHS Clinical Chiefs for the Six Core Clinical Clerkships, is now available to the clinical science students via the UMHS LMS
platform. While these students rotate through their core clerkships in any of the many UMHS affiliated American hospitals
, they will always have ready access to the key information they need to guide them in their learning.
The UMHS Clinical Chiefs
have prepared the learning modules to cover all the key topics the students will need to know. The topical modules contain a variety of learning activities; from Lecture PowerPoint Presentations (some with voice-over), to videos, to practice quizzes, to interactive case studies. Most of the modules also contain targeted readings, embedded right in the LMS. These are selected from the valuable AccessMedicine
database or one of the EBSCO databases
of medical journals and ebooks, all of which our faculty and students enjoy full subscription access too.
Thanks goes out to the UMHS Clinical Sciences Faculty
George Shade MD – Dean of Clinical Sciences; Clinical Chief Obstetrics/ Gynecology
Robert Levine MD – Clinical Chief for Family Medicine
Steven Caplan MD PA – Clinical Chief for Pediatrics
Charles Herrick MD – Clinical Chief for Psychiatry
Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS – Clinical Chief for Surgery
