i. First SG General Council Meeting Next Tuesday (Aug 23rd)- 1st of the year; many 1st years attend this one; we vote on any initiatives brought up last year

ii. Video project to showcase UMMSM- very new idea, nothing concrete has been done yet but reaching out for students with interest/experience in videography for a DOCS-umentary-esque video to show at Second Look and Orientation to get the Miller School out there. Reach out to School of Communications for videographers.

iii. Admissions committee medical student selections

ii. MS3 orientation to be revamped

iii. First year elections to take place after anatomy is over- working with Liza Plafsky for that

iv. Proposing amendment from last year about Minority Representatives for each class- SNMA position. Would open the position at first year election. Depending on what gets passed may have other position option. Want to create a minority rep position for each class and RMC classes, ends up being 8 positions new. How are they defining minority? There is no definition in the amendment. It is an appointed position as per the amendment. Who would appoint them? SG and OSR together is the proposed group to appoint them. Will attach initial amendment and proposals to classes to review prior to the general council meeting. Consider a venue for open dialog about the issue.

F. IT Webmaster– Benjamin Silver

i. Working on getting the DOCS/SG/AS websites back up and running- server was hacked at the end of last year- DOCS is back up, but SG and AS haven’t been brought back up yet. Spoke with Nick in IT to meet after meeting with SG/AS IT Reps. Tell your classes that everything is still accessible via secure gateway and on campus. Send out an instructional email about how to access secure gateway off campus.

VIII. Deans’ Announcements

-Need a centralized calendar for all events AS/DOCS/SG/Student Orgs. Make it so that we don’t have to reinvent the wheel each year, trouble is finding an administrator of it also.

– Gardner: New role; Dr. Goldschmidt’s reason for stepping down to pursue international affiliates for the school, China, Moracco, Bahamas, United Arab Emirates and elsewhere. Intends to develop a large network to UMMSM. As interim dean, limited in duration until permanent dean is chosen in about a year. Search committee will be announced next week by the President. A lot of input about credible candidates. Very balanced with regard to gender on search committee. Altschuler is a pediatrician by training, been given immense authority by Board of Trutees to reorganize UHealth as a healthcare delivery system. Looking at a new governance model now. Priority is the students, faculty, and physicians. We should have Altschuler also attend this meeting at some point. Consider using this 1.5 hours most usefully. Ask questions to Frenk/Altschuler, consider revised agenda. Don’t waste the opportunity to ask the hard questions. Looking to revise the IT effort that the school has and needs. Pleasure to be here, office is on the first floor across from Admissions, door is always open. LCME- student analysis thoughtful and deep. Approach- look at school what works well, what isn’t, look for ways to help and respond before LCME gets here. We are going to build a new building with a big update before next Dean’s meeting including a time frame.

* Alex Mechaber: Have begun analyzing LCME data and how to approach fixing things. Plan to have mock site visit by external faculty member to look at the database and put us through simulated meetings. Looking to do this in

October. This will give us time to tweak things. Goal is in Feb we have already identified all blemishes and have worked to improve them, no blemishes. Student meetings will also occur by LCME on Feb 5th and 8th.

* Campo- Mediafire myth clarification- ton of copyrighted material illegally uploaded, anyone without permission is liable. Admin is not liable and had no idea. Fortunately nothing happened but in the future if students wish to put up study guides, that is great. But anyone doing copyright infringement is liable. Be wise. Let your classmates know.

* Hilit Mechaber- Writing center students is available to medical students for advice on personal statements, etc. Offer hours here.

* Mendez- Jr.s and Sr.s try to communicate about cerner issues. Some access issues, make sure everyone has access before starting rotations.
