AAMC Graduation Questionnaire
Each year in February, senior medical students are asked to participate in the AAMC Graduation Questionnaire. Participation in the Graduation Questionnaire is an important way to provide feedback to improve medical education and student support services at our medical school. The questionnaire is a primary source of data on clinical training effectiveness, specialty and career plans, financial aid and student wellness.
After the survey closes, the AAMC will provide reports that aggregate results at the school level. These results are compared to national aggregated responses to benchmark how our school is performing in certain critical areas. The AAMC also uses these responses to provide information to support advocacy efforts for medical education.
Important Upcoming Dates for the Class of 2016
Protecting our UTHSC Brand! It's a BIG deal
Student groups and organizations often do not realize all that they need to do before producing and selling an item such as a T-shirt. First, they must submit the design for their art to the UTHSC Communications and Marketing Department for review. After Communications and Marketing has reviewed, edited and approved the design, it then must be submitted to the UTHSC Office of Student Affairs. All student fund-raising projects, even when they don't include the UTHSC brand, must first be approved by the UTHSC Office of Student Affairs. The Office of Trademark Licensing will provide an updated list of approved vendors from which to choose at http://licensing.tennessee.edu/. Vendors who do not appear on the list are not approved to print items with the UTHSC brand.
Dr. Susan Brewer will be hosting an afternoon info-session on "Fundraising Hurdles & Campus Regulations" for COM student group and organization leaders. Class officers (presidents, vice-presidents, secretaries and treasurers) are also expected to attend. Group/organization leaders and class officers are asked to RSVP responding to your MeetingWizard invitation or by contacting Alysia Danley (email@example.com / 448-5684) directly. Time and location of meeting TBA.
