There will be a Triple I Project information session for UW medical students on January 26th, 2015 at 4:30 in the Institute at UWMC, Room SP1122.
The Independent Investigative Inquiry (Triple I) program provides 1st year medical students with the opportunity to engage in research through a variety of tracks across the UW School of Medicine. The Institute selective provides an opportunity to join ongoing projects with faculty and help develop simulation-based educational materials.
Projects from the 2014 summer varied widely. Saurabh Khandelwal, MD, and Marcelo Hinojosa, MD, both Assistant Professors of Surgery, worked with students to develop three video based skills modules for surgical residents. Heather Evans, MD, Associate Professor of Surgery, worked with a student on a project in which Google Glass was used during central line placement. Students also worked under the supervision of the Institute Executive Director Brian Ross, PhD, MD, on the development and analysis of the EventDoc application for Code Blue/Trauma response event recording.
Project opportunities for the 2015 Triple I program will be announced at the informational session. Interested students may contact Megan Sherman for an application, which is due February 13th, 2015. Please return applications to Megan via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), campus mail (Box 356410), or in person (UWMC, Room SP1124).
