Student Affairs

February 2018

I hope everyone is doing well. Luckily it will not be long until we are all together again for Continuum Connections. In the meantime, the Student Affairs committee is continuing to work on solutions to several common problems we all share, namely Wellness and Applying Intelligently to Residency. Two project proposals that are currently in the workshopping stage are a guide to maximizing the use of VSAS for students as well as an online resource to catalog student wellness initiatives for easier access and better information sharing.

The Ad Board is currently developing content for this Fall’s Learn Serve Lead Conference. We are excited for the potential to try some new session ideas during our dedicated OSR time blocks. While we are still in the planning stages, I encourage any session ideas or questions about content to be sent to me via email.

An update on COSA: the new guidelines issued by the NRMP on the MSPE and have been met with several questions from the committee, because of the lack of specific examples given as to what “complete, timely, and accurate information” is. Conversations are ongoing to address this ambiguity. These conversations have also led to discussions on strategies to better standardize the MSPE.

If there are any concerns or feedback you would like to provide, please do not hesitate to contact me.
