Title: What in the World does AACOM do with all of those AACOMAS Decisions and How Does this Help my COM?

Date/Time: Aug 25, 2020 at 2:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Description:

    Each year, AACOM requests admissions decisions from our 36 institutions. During this webinar, our goal is to explain how we use the data provided, and how it can help your institution make better, more informed decisions. What you’ll gain by joining this meeting:

    • An in depth review of when and how to input final admissions decisions into WebAdMIT
    • A demonstration of AACOM’s Admissions Dashboards. These dashboards allow you to access data on your application information and compare and evaluate your COM against your peer COMs. (*Note: All Deans currently have access to AACOM’s Admissions Dashboards and can provide an unlimited amount of users with access at each school)
    • An overview of AACOM’s Auxiliary Applicant and Matriculant Reports

Title: There’s an App for That! Improving Mental Health and Wellness in Medical Students

Date/Time: September 8, 2020 at 2pm in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Description:

  • The ongoing epidemic of burnout and self-harm among both osteopathic and allopathic medical students has long been known.
  • Rates of depression and suicide are much higher among medical student cohorts than the average population.
  • Research shows that wellness and self-care can combat mental health issues and are necessary for physicians to be effective in their clinical practice and community involvement.
  • There is a wealth of data on how to effectively use modern technology to address these issues, specifically the utilization of smart phones and tablets amongst the medical student population.
  • This presents the opportunity for a novel approach to help address the mental health issues faced by medical students and future physicians.
