<em>Feinberg Flipside</em> Creates New Review Panel to Review Review Panels Reviews of Student Reviews of New Curriculum

Feinberg Flipside Creates New Review Panel to Review Review Panels Reviews of Student Reviews of New Curriculum

FLIPSIDE HEADQUARTERS – During our latest meeting, The Flipside got to thinking (yes, we actually think). There’s so many layers of review at Feinberg. You have the new curriculum itself, which is the culmination of reviews from past students and faculty of FSM 2.0. Of course, you have the current M1s who review the new curriculum. Then, you’ve got Review Panels for certain aspects of the curriculum. But who reviews the review panels? Don’t they have to be in check?

The Flipside is proud to announce the creation of it’s own Review Panel. We call it the Review Review Panel. We hope to provide constructive feedback in a timely fashion regarding the reviews of the Review Panels reviews of student reviews of the new curriculum. Did we get that right? I think so.

Anyway, we’re going to start our Review Review Panel on the reviews from the Renal module (mainly because ‘renal’ sounds somewhat similar to ‘review’ as to only confuse you further). So, it should be another, oh I don’t know, three and a half months before those reviews are sent out to us by email. Once we have those reviews, we’ll begin composing our own reviews, which should take an additional three months time. Given that timeline, hopefully you’ll hear back from us by Halloween.

If there is someone out there who would like to review The Flipside’s Review Review Panel reviews of the Review Panel reviews of the students reviews of the curriculum which is basically a review of the old curriculum, please let us know.

We will send out an email when you can fill out this review, as it will take us a while to put it on the Student Evaluation System. Then, it won’t work, and we’ll have to repost it, but we’re still going to have it due like really soon after it’s up and running, even though we won’t share our thoughts on your feedback for roughly four months or so.

I think you get it by now. In all fairness, the review system is important, especially in a newly revamped curriculum. We do play an important role in how things play out. Hey, if you have a review of The Flipside in general, by all means, let us know. That’s why we have a comment function after all.

Students Excited for Apple Juice, Nap During H&S Lectures

Students Excited for Apple Juice, Nap During H&S Lectures

HUGHES AUDITORIUM – The Health and Society Review Panel released its findings to the M1 class via email about a month and a half or so ago. They decided that, in order to better encourage student participation during the weekly two hour lecture in lieu of small group sessions, it would be required best if we were to occupy only the first eight rows in Hughes. To the dismay of students who get anxious when sitting in the front of a lecture hall, this recommendation received little protest from the M1 class.

“We feel like students weren’t paying attention during Health and Society lectures,” one member of the Review Panel told Flipside reporters. “It’s all about generating a discussion.”

Although there might not have been much protest, there were certainly individuals who were critical of the Review Panel’s recommendation.

“We’re adults after all, you know,” Albert F. D. Superficialis pleaded to The Flipside. “Hey, if we want to participate, we’ll participate. We know how to appropriately handle ourselves and we are the ones that are ultimately responsible for our own education.”

While Albert makes a good point, what he forgets is that topics like health literacy, global health as it pertains to lungs, gallery walks, forcing us to participate in death panel kidney donations, and global health as it pertains to the renal unit are best internalized if we learn as a group. Best internalized only if our hands are held for us, instead of us trying to understand it on our own. No, being within sneezing distance of half of your medical school class is a far better way to learn. We should all realize that when it comes to motivating yourself to learn in medical school, having your hand held is the best method. We’re med students after all, who among us has an intrinsic desire and passion for knowledge and education?

To further solidify their holding hands approach (also being referred to as ‘The Kindergarten Method’), the H&S Review Panel has recently decided to institute a mandatory apple juice session after H&S lecture, followed by an hour nap. That is, only if you pick up all the toys first and put them back where they belong. Only then will you get your apple juice.

FSM Scraps IT Department to Focus Funds on Re-Animating Steve Jobs

FSM Scraps IT Department to Focus Funds on Re-Animating Steve Jobs

Hughes Auditorium – In light of recent numerous issues, the Feinberg School of Medicine is scrapping its dysfunctional IT department completely and focusing all funds on a project to re-animate Steve Jobs.

“It’ll simply be easier to bring Mr. Jobs back to life than to fix the problems we have,” explained IT Coordinator Karen Brown. “Students rely on recorded lectures and we don’t want to delay a solution any longer.” She went on to explain to Flipside reporters that she fully expects the quirky technology genius to have some fantastic ideas. “Mr. Jobs may pursue tasks as innovative as actually recording lectures, allowing view speed to be altered by students, and offering one simple downloadable file.” These concepts, now deemed science fiction, aren’t expected to be a barrier for Mr. Jobs.

The project, colloquially deemed iGiveUp, is expected to begin immediately on April 31st.

OPINION PIECE BY PAUL SWANSON: I’m really getting tired of you people

OPINION PIECE BY PAUL SWANSON: I’m really getting tired of you people

Another medical school class and another year in which my problems go unsolved and untreated. Mainly untreated. I guess they’re not unsolved, but you guys really do take your sweet time.

Oh, you don’t remember me? I’m not surprised. I’m Paul Swanson, you know, that patient you almost killed like 27 times during the SAM II module. For some reason, I always agree to let the medical students treat me. I came in here with a fever and a cough. A fever and cough! And what do I get? I get pneumonia! My lungs stop working! My kidneys stop working! You keep worrying about this ARDS thing and you stop caring about my infection! Ah, and on top of that, my buddy Paul Swansonson came to this hospital about the same time I did. He had bypass surgery, but everything kept going wrong and you guys just stood there! You stood there and watched some guy in a white coat bring up images on an iPad and draw some silly graphs on a dry erase board!

I mean, really, who cares what my A-a gradient is? Give me the darn medicine already so I can get this ventilator out and go home already. Seriously, I’m really getting tired of you people. I mean, the first day I’m here, I’m totally dehydrated. You tell me you’re going to give me fluids, but instead hold an IV bag in front of my face for an hour and a half before even doing anything, as if to tantalize me. Then, when you finally do hook everything up, you never actually released the valve! What is wrong with you people? Teasing me like that. I’m dying of thirst over here!

I don’t know what kind of medical care you guys are running here, but it ain’t working. That’s for sure. Maybe you guys should look into a different profession. I hear the IT department here needs help.

<em>Flipside</em> Returns From Lengthy Hiatus: We thought STEP 1 was after M1 year

Flipside Returns From Lengthy Hiatus: We thought STEP 1 was after M1 year

FLIPSIDE HEADQUARTERS – Well, this is embarrassing. It seems that there has been a bit of a mix up of sorts. We here at The Flipside have been, well, studying for boards. That’s kind of why we haven’t been generating much content lately. Oops.

You see, we took the whole STEP 1 thing a bit too literally. We thought it was the first step because it was after the first year. We see now that that does not make any sense. We apologize for letting a lot of rather strange Feinberg events pass through our all seeing and all knowing filter. I mean, think about it. This new media site stuff? Lectures in the law building without sending us an email? Lack of preparation for anatomy lab? The entire Head and Neck schedule? Crazy, right?

Again, that’s our bad folks. We’re on it now. To be honest though, it’s getting really easy to satirize what goes on around here. It’s as if it just falls into our lap or something.
