The latest issue of the CURRents newsletter is now available. The University of South Alabama College of Medicine’s Division of Medical Education created the newsletter, which is published two times a year.
Dr. Anthony Gard, assistant dean for medical education and professor of cell biology and neuroscience at the USA College of Medicine, said the newsletter was created to inform USA College of Medicine faculty, residents and students about ongoing developments in the medical education program.
The format of the CURRents newsletter parallels undergraduate medical education (UME) quality improvement efforts. In every issue, readers are updated on the progress toward completion of particular program initiatives as quality improvement cycles of planning, doing, studying and acting are worked through and described.
