communication student s view
Communication-Student’s View
  • Communication In St. Vincent’s5th and 6th term
  • Information about academics flows from Orientation and Dean of Students
  • Student Government Announcements
  • Office of DES has a list of upper classmen and email lists of the previous classes clinical placements. 5th and 6th term students can email clinical students and get information on clinical placement and hospitals. The office is consistent and available. It is critical that the clinical list + email of students new placements be up dated or information can be disrupted. Correspondence varies
  • Ideally reps from one or two hospitals should come down and give a presentation on the clinical years (this is what would be needed most) + a question and answer session
  • CHANGES:This has been done: John Madden, MD, OCG, brings Clinical Student(s) to St. Vincent

Communication - Student’s View
  • 7th Term and on “The Clinical Years”
  • Before leaving St. Vincent class reps made a master contact list which includes email & phone numbers.

The class is divided by alphabet and each representative was assigned 15-20 students.

  • The class reps are directly responsible for disseminating information that is sent to us by either John Madden (Clinical Dean) or anyone else.

  • STUDENT CALLERS ( RECRUITERS)
  • Prior to enrollment as a medical student, the potential student has telephone communication with clinical students who provide information re: SGUSOM and answer the candidate’s questions.
  • ADMISSIONS INTERVIEWS are conducted by SGUOM Graduates, so that the prospective candidate can ask questions and interact with someone who has experienced life as a St. George’s student.

OPEN HOUSES for incoming students are attended by current SGUSOM students and graduates who interact with the new students

The STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION (SGA) provides a forum for formal communication between students in the same semester, as well as between semesters. Fifth semester students visit the fourth semester students on Grenada to discuss life in St. Vincent.

CHANGES :Clinical SGA representative visits the Kingstown Medical College students each semester with Dr. Madden to discuss the Clinical Year

Hospital representatives delegated from SGA to communicate with peers and younger students.

SGA welcomes new students to clinical sites

SGA ( Bonnie Dellinger and colleagues ) posted Clinical information on Angel web site for all to access ; this needs to be moved to the new Mentor site .

SGUSOM MENTOR MESSAGE BOARD

Communication from Tony Schmidt ,Director, IT
  • The categories you developed were a good start, but were much to voluminous.
  • I realized recently that SGU Talk is really a mentoring system in its own right. That's why I joined the two together. If we continued to have two discussion forums, it would just confuse everyone.

Communication from Tony Schmidt Director, IT
  • The better way to handle this is to have students create their own threads instead. As they are posted we can make some "sticky" so that they always stay on the top of a category.
  • That's why I have asked you to have your student volunteers "seed" some threads with common questions in the current set of categories.
