Precision Healthcare Class Audit Opportunity

DGSOM Students have the opportunity to audit only Dr. Benjamin's Precision Healthcare course.

Course Description
The health care industry is undergoing a technology-driven transformation, with screening, treatment, and advice all becoming more tailored to an individual’s genes, behavior, and environment. This course will address the opportunities and challenges of this new landscape for those who will work in the health care industry, including entrepreneurs, managers, venture capitalists, health insurers, and healthcare administrators. Precision health care technologies discussed in the course will include genomic risk prediction, digital diagnosis, targeted therapeutics, remote monitoring, and fitness and dieting apps, among others. The course will also address consumers’ understanding of the technology, ethical issues in precision health care, and the behavioral economics of take-up and continued use of precision health interventions.
This course is based on cases and guest speakers, supplemented by relevant background reading. The cases draw on real issues faced by precision-health businesses. The guest speakers are experienced managers, founders, venture capitalists, investors, doctors, and scientists.
In this class, students will learn most by active participation in the class exercises and discussions.

ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program

The ASH Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) provides underrepresented minority medical students with an opportunity to conduct a research project under the supervision of an ASH member, receive guidance from a career-development mentor, gain valuable knowledge of hematology, and ultimately, advance their careers. As part of the ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative, the MMSAP aims to expand the program’s reach to the next generation of hematologists.
Applicants must have a research mentor who is an ASH member in good standing and may choose from one of three project options with varying program benefits. The summer project option requires an eight- to 12-week commitment; the flexible project requires a commitment of approximately 320 to 480 hours over the course of a year; and the yearlong project requires participants to take a year off from school to engage in research full-time.

MEMMYS Video Contest

The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia is pleased to announce that the MEMMYS video contest is back! Because of the COVID pandemic and concern for the safety of all involved, the Memmys had to be placed on hold. We are excited to announce that the Memmys contest is returning in 2023.

The life and times of health professions students have been captured on video by students themselves for many years. The videos have become a means of celebration, shared camaraderie, and artistic expression of these enormously talented and committed young professionals. By combining popular songs and student experiences, the videos give a glimpse into the often challenging but ultimately rewarding lives of students in the health professions.

Since 2013, the University of South Carolina School of Medicine has recognized schools whose students have created the very best videos. In each contest, three schools selected by a panel of judges receive a Memmys award for display and their health sciences library receives a monetary prize (1st place $1,500, 2nd place $1,000, and 3rd place $500). All health professions schools are eligible to participate.

Please see the Memmys website - memmys.org - for contest rules, important dates, and videos of previous winners.

The final date for video submission is March 15, 2023.
