The AMSS recently asked all Year 3 students to fill out a survey regarding their experience of the Mental Health First Aid course they completed in Semester 1. We would like to say thank you to all the students who filled out the survey!
The AMSS' TeamEd has received multiple specific questions regarding the "new MD" from the general student body. TeamEd is aware of concerns raised by current students regarding the stress resulting from lack of information, and is advocating to reduce this.
At the recent grand round at the Royal Adelaide Hospital today (Tuesday 23/04/19) discussing the move to the "new MD program", it was mentioned that Emedici would be phased out from the Year 4 General Surgery program.
Congratulations to our newly elected Year 2 and 3 Representatives! 🎉
After two years of persistent feedback from students, a new quiet study space is coming to the AHMS! It is currently being constructed and is expected to be completed by Monday 4th March 2019. It will be located at the eastern end of Level 4 AHMS and can be reached by taking the stairs from the Student Lounge on Level 3 (wheelchair access - use the Goods Lift at the eastern end of the building). The new quiet study space is designed to be used as a short-term study space, which means desks cannot be reserved and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately, there are no long-term storage facilities. No swipe card access is required - the room will be open during regular AHMS hours (7.30am-6pm). We hope you enjoy it!
A big thank you to all who completed the 2018 AMSS Assessment Survey. The value of such submissions cannot be understated and puts TeamEd in a strong position to work with staff in 2019 to act on the feedback submitted. Keen to hear what everyone said about anatomy, learning objectives, and OSCEs? Check out the submission for the data, colourful graphs and insightful comments that highlight student opinion on assessment.
The sleep lab in the old RAH was decommissioned upon the move and a lab has not been re-created. This means that they are unable to perform the more sophisticated 'level 1' sleep studies that are required to assess complex sleep issues that arise in the subgroups of inpatients that the nRAH is designed to care for (stroke patients and spinal cord injury patients as two examples), and they are also unable to optimally care for a range of other patients including those with chronic respiratory failure requiring nocturnal non-invasive ventilation and narcolepsy. The AMA(SA) and SASMOA both support the reinstatement of the sleep lab on this basis.
