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.

M1 Interviews Santa for Winter Break H&S Assignment

M1 Interviews Santa for Winter Break H&S Assignment

NEWS IN BRIEF

The M1 students were asked to complete a Health and Society assignment over break in which they interviewed a family member about their diet, cardiovascular disease prevention, and possible treatment. One student, unable to find an at risk family member, decided to stay up late on Christmas Eve and talk to Santa.

“I had to stay up real late,” Albert Hancock told Flipside reporters. “It was way passed my bed time. But I saw him and boy was he fat. We only could talk for about five minutes, and most of that time his mouth was full of cookies and milk, but I learned a lot.”

Hancock recorded that Santa’s LDL-c was 165 … x 1017. What was really interesting is that his HDL was actually a negative value.

“I suggested that he start taking the stairs to get to and from the roof from now on. Going up and down that chimney all the time was really packing on the pounds.”
