Culinary Medicine Club

It is one thing to read about nutrition on paper and learn various dietary sources, but it is another thing to put it into practice. You can't just tell a patient "you need to be on a low cholesterol diet;" you have to tell them where to start. The goal of the Culinary Medicine Club is to integrate medical nutrition lectures with real life applications. We aim to give medical students the skills they need to effectively talk to patients about nutrition through hosting hands-on cooking workshops, as well as educational information sessions on how to create meal plans to accommodate the various dietary needs of patients such as those who are diabetic or are on Coumadin. Furthermore, we plan on partnering with other campus organizations to host community events to teach members of our local community basic cooking skills and give them resources on attaining appropriate nutrition.

This club will not only help medical students be healthier, but will help us as future physicians in guiding our patients towards better nutrition so that we can be proactive rather than reactive.

The purpose of this organization is to educate medical students about the effects of conflict on health care. This would help prepare students interested in domestic/global health for widely varying circumstances in their respective fields. The goal of this organization is to show that no situation is the same from country to country; it is widely variable, and physicians should be prepared to search for solutions once introduced to the new environment. Types of conflict discussed may include the following: war, civil war, political tensions, and corruption. These circumstances take a large toll on civilian health—educating the coming years' physicians (through case studies, journal club discussions, guest speakers, etc.) will play a role in satisfying the health needs of people living within the disorder in a non-political, humanitarian way.

Medical Device

The College of Medicine Medical Device Interest Group is a student organization that highlights current medical devices and emerging technologies. It is important for students, as future physicians and surgeons, to learn more about the advancements within the device sector and discover their utility within the operating room.

Our primary goal is to showcase various technologies including: implants, biomaterials, and other surgical tools at each meeting in addition to the physician's role in their development. Clinicians (who utilize these technologies) and industry leaders (who are on the forefront of device innovation) will present on these topics and teach College of Medicine students about the impact and design process of these technologies. Moreover, this exposure will foster interest in the subjects of bioengineering and device manufacturing, which physicians have an increasingly large role in. Our unique and explicit focus on medical devices and their development and use is meant to educate future physicians about the processes, foundations, and goals of such work.

This interest group does not intend to develop any clinical skills or focus on any particular subspecialty; rather, it intends to enable students to see the role a physician can play in developing new technologies in order to improve procedure efficiency, cost and patient outcomes.

Radiation Oncology

The purpose of the Radiation Oncology Interest Group is to educate medical students on the growing field and the scope of radiation oncology. Radiation oncology is a small, competitive field with limited exposure in the medical curriculum. Therefore, students are often not aware of what it entails or find it difficult to be involved. Unlike hematology-oncology, radiation oncology deals with the treatment of cancer specifically through the use of radiation. Radiation is a great tool, but one that must be used with precision and care. The goal of this group is to provide students with a better understanding of radiation oncology through shadowing experiences, faculty presentations, research opportunities and practical workshops and to develop a strong network of physicians and researchers within the field.

We will be bringing in various physicians in the field to come in and present their knowledge of the field. This is to give the students an idea of what the field is like and get more information on how to get started even as early as the first year of medical school. Additionally, we plan to arrange for interactive sessions with either the residents or senior surgeons under the Cardiothoracic Department to go through theoretical or real life cases with the students so that they might gain even more of an idea of what everyday life is like as a surgeon. We will work to ensure that the student population gets an informative and positive experience from this interest group. In short, the overall goal of this group will be to expose students to the field of cardiothoracic surgery.

Transplant Surgery Observation

Currently only two United States medical schools have well-established programs wherein which the medical students have the privilege to regularly shadow (and occasionally scrub alongside) physicians performing organ transplant surgeries. These two institutions are Harvard Medical School and the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University.

The College of Medicine Transplant Surgery Observation Program—the first of its kind at Drexel and apparently the third in the country—will allow first and second-year medical students to observe the actual transplant procedure, and even participate in the acquisition of the specimen. Not only will this send a powerful message about Drexel within the larger medical community, but also provide students early in their training with excellent supplementary experience that will undoubtedly shape future aspirations and career decisions.

Participation is randomized from a list of students registered for the program and a pager is given to the student at the top of that week's list. Temporal rotation of the student pager would ensure that as many students as possible have the opportunity to be ‘on-call' should a transplant occur. Paging the student pager notifies this student that their opportunity to observe the life-saving procedure has finally come.

Urology

The objective of the Urology Interest Group is to educate the medical school on the field of Urology. We would like to enlighten students about the specific work, lifestyle, and criteria for matching into the field of Urology. To do this, we plan on bringing in attending Urologic surgeons around the Philadelphia area to describe their work and day-to-day experiences as Urologic Surgeons. Furthermore, we would like to engage the students in the field of Urology by organizing shadowing experiences between students and attending surgeons in the area. Later in the year, we plan on inviting fourth year medical students that matched into the field to describe their experience with getting interested and subsequently matching into the field. We look forward to educating the medical school class on this wonderful specialty, and hope to increase interest in this competitive field.
