A plethora of UMMC caregivers serve the sickest, most complex patients on four ICU floors. Once silos in themselves, the units are experiencing a culture change: Attending physicians freely talk to each other, put front-line caregivers on their rounding teams and hold most sacred the best and safest outcomes for patients.
JoJo Dodd and Joe Pongetti now wear blue UMMC scrubs as M1s, but the two were among those donning the tan fur suit of Mississippi State University’s mascot, Bully, during their undergraduate days. As recently as July, Dodd portrayed the tenacious canine while visiting patients at Batson Children’s Hospital.
Long-held attitudes about women are making an about-face: UMMC's enrollment milestone for females in the incoming medical school class mirrors a national trend.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming weeks at the Medical Center.
Medical Center leadership is proud to announce the following additions to its faculty and leadership staff.
