Being an accomplished photographer may not necessarily help you get into medical school, but it may help you get through it. For many students in the School of Medicine at UMMC, their own camera work provides a kind of mental health haven from the textbook grind. You can see evidence of their creative side in an exhibition called “Color Our Walls.”
Chief Mary Eileen Paradis launched her distinguished law enforcement career in Chicago as one of a few female police officers working in the Windy City. Her career trajectory took her from street patrols to a college campus in Arlington, VA, and now she’s bringing her more than 30 years of experience to UMMC where she plans to make officers an integral part of the Medical Center community.
Access to care, especially in the most rural of corners. That’s been a passion of Dr. Robert Brodell, professor and chair of the Department of Dermatology, as he works to expand the presence of dermatology across Mississippi. Brodell has a national stage to continue advocating for patients as the new president of the American Dermatological Association.
Accelerated BSN student Paul Sabbatini was settling in to study one night, but first he needed to write down thoughts that were running through his mind about his chosen profession. Volunteering earlier in the day at one of the COVID-19 field hospitals had inspired his poem, “This is Us.” The poem was voiced by UMMC nurses in a video that’s been viewed more than 22,000 times on the Medical Center’s Facebook page.
Dr. Felicitas Koller, associate professor of transplant surgery, is an excellent surgical educator and strong advocate for medical students. For her dedication to the profession, she’s being honored with an award from the Association of Women Surgeons Foundation.
