I want to call your attention to a class that is offered by Dr Kalev
Freeman, MD, Ph.D. This is another opportunity afforded to
undergraduates because we have the Academic Medical Center, Fletcher
Allen Health Care, on campus along with the UVM Medical school.
Students who want some Emergency Department exposure enjoy this class.
Dr. Freeman offers tremendous mentoring and the cohort of students
in the class are engaged and enthused with this work. see contact info
at the end of the description if you need more information.
Surgery 195 - EMS Research is being offered again and still has space
available for the spring 2010 semester. The course is 3 credits and
involves a didactic session on Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. (we also meet
sometimes on Tuesdays during the same time block)and one 6 hour
research session per week in the FAHC Emergency Department. Our
research associates (RAs) staff a station 24/7 in the ED to identify,
consent and enroll patients into several research studies, including
head injury and carbon monoxide poisoning studies. There are also
plenty of opportunities to shadow all types of providers and staff in
the ED, as well as to observe surgeries, cardiac catheterizations, and
the hospital. The didactic portion of the class explores subjects
including: how to design a research study, clinical and research
ethics, statistics, and includes the opportunity for more advanced
lectures in a small-group format with various providers from FAHC.
