Feinberg M1 Finally Beats Oregon Trail

Feinberg M1 Finally Beats Oregon Trail

HUGHES AUDITORIUM – M1 Clayton Sowinski gives credit to recent bacteriology lectures for his success in finally beating Oregon Trail, the computer game made popular in the early 90s.

Sowinski recounted, “When I was a kid I would spend all my time hunting and all my people would eventually die of some infectious disease, usually somewhere around mid-Wyoming. I never actually made it to Oregon.”

He went on to explain the benefit of recent SM lectures. “The most useful part of med school so far has been the bacteria lectures. I can handle typhoid, diphtheria, and cholera, and finally get my family to Oregon. Gram positive, gram negative, aerobe, anaerobe? Bring it on.”

When asked what he will do with his time now that he’s triumphed the long trans-America trek, Sowinski reflected, “I’ll probably just spend more time hunting, everyone knows that’s the best part of the game anyway.”

Student, Like, Really Concerned About These Herpes Statistics

Student, Like, Really Concerned About These Herpes Statistics

HUGHES AUDITORIUM – M1 student Grant Laske was shocked last week during a Science in Medicine lecture on herpesviruses. “It was early in the morning, so I wasn’t paying 100% attention yet,” said Laske, “but, I’m pretty sure I heard the lecturer say something like 90% of people are infected with herpes.”

“That number is just, like, unacceptable,” Laske added.

Since the lecture, Laske has been trying to get to the bottom of this shocking statistic. He reports he spent most of the PBL session immediately following the lecture looking up the rates of herpesvirus infection on his phone. But Laske says he has been having difficulty interpreting the information he is finding.

“I just wish I’d been paying more attention in MDM, you know?” said Laske. “I can’t remember whether the lecturer was telling us prevalence of the disease or incidence. And frankly I don’t know the difference between those two things anyways.”

Laske’s friend Karen Wentley says she saw Laske in Galter Library this weekend reading Clinical Epidemiology by Fletcher and Fletcher and muttering to himself about alpha levels.
