- 107 Medical Behavioral Science Building
2018 has been a very successful year. She managed to land two new Selected Clinical Experiences for the ICM course. They are especially pleased that both of these sites will expand the Department’s focus on substance misuse. One is the Addiction Medicine service for UK inpatients. This program focuses on addiction medicine in the context of both pregnancy and post-partum recovery. This experience will dovetail well with the other new one, Beyond Birth. This site provides the students the opportunity to sit in on groups as well as mother/baby exams, in an outpatient clinic treating new mothers with substance use disorders. Managing to acquire entrée to both these sites is a real coup. The Behavioral Science module for first-year dental students, CDE 814, was very successful this year. Among the 65 students, there was not a single absence -- really remarkable considering the course ran 8:00-10:00 AM Tuesday and Thursday. The College accreditation committee must have been satisfied with the course as she did not have a single inquiry from them. The Honors course went extremely well this year. The Rapid Appraisal projects were well done and submitted in a timely manner. None was late or incomplete. Related to this course is the fact that it will be modified to fit into the Department’s certificate program. This will require her to expand and tighten the epidemiology portion as the most pertinent to preparation for the MCATs.
