Lectures have been as central to a medical student’s life as white coats, rotations and pizza. But for about three decades, medical schools have moved away from the traditional, lecture-based courses toward those focusing on problem-solving and team-based learning. How is that trend playing out at UMMC? Will this shift eventually topple the "sage from the stage?"
Where do UMMC’s inventors go for support for their new ideas? With recent changes in leadership and location, the Technology Transfer Office has the resources innovators need to succeed. The office is developing new strategies to advance innovation and spur economic development in Mississippi.
UMMC faculty and staff offered free breast, cervical and skin cancer screenings Jan. 27 to about 106 uninsured and underinsured women in the Jackson metro area. A College of American Pathologists Foundation grant covered some of the cost of the CAP See, Test and Treat Program.
Medical Center leadership is proud to acknowledge those employees who will celebrate service anniversaries during the week of Jan. 29-Feb. 4.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming weeks at the Medical Center.
