Community Health Project
Program Description: The UTCOM-Waite Brand Foundation Community Health Project (CHP) provides medical students with a deeper and broader understanding of the socioeconomic, cultural and environmental factors that contribute to an individual’s health status. This project seeks to provide valuable benefits to participating social service agencies and the people they serve. The principal component of the CHP is the Summer Internship Program which places students in a variety of social service agencies. Intern services range from preparing and presenting educational material, to providing basic health screening.
The 2012 CHP Director is James Tudor, MS1.
Family Practice Preceptorship
Program Description: This elective is an introduction to Family Medicine and to office-based family practice in a rural/underserved area. Students will learn about the basics of the medical history and physical examination, physician-patient relationships, as well as receive an orientation to private office procedures. In addition, students will be exposed to aspects of family medicine in rural areas that extend beyond the office experience. This experience provides an opportunity for students to work with the family physician in the office, hospital, and on call, as well as in other capacities depending on the physician’s role in the community.
Medical Education Preceptorship
Program Description: The overall goal of this experience is to aid the Gross Anatomy faculty in the preparation of prosected (i.e., pre-dissected) material to be used to enhance learning of human anatomy. For some areas of anatomy the combination of limited time and intrinsic complexity of the anatomy may reduce the effectiveness of dissection for the majority of the students. The gross anatomy faculty at The University of Toledo College of Medicine are in the process of building a library of prosected plastinated specimens for use by all students in the human dissections laboratories.
Summer Research Preceptorships
Program Description: This experience is an introduction to the research aspects of a medical career and the ways in which modern research is conducted. The student will work side by side with a faculty member, performing a variety of lab or clinical techniques and experiments.
