Academic counseling Tutoring         Test-taking

Our goal is to help all learners in the School of Medicine, Graduate School of Nursing, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and Graduate Medical Education achieve the most comprehensive and meaningful educational experience possible.  We encourage you to access the resources of the Center for Academic Achievement.

The CAA is made up of the Center for Academic Achievement, as well as Academic Enrichment Programs which work together in order to provide comprehensive services to students, residents, and fellows.  Students seen for academic enrichment may be encouraged to receive clinical enrichment services and vice versa.

Clinical

Clinical students, residents, and fellows should contact Scott Wellman, MD, Interim Director of the Center for Academic Achievement, or Madeline Johns, Project Coordinator, for the following concerns:

  • Clinical skills related to working on the wards
  • Clinical interviewing
  • Clinical problem solving and decision making
  • Patient communication
  • Patient oral presentation
  • Patient notes
  • Performance on OSCEs
  • CCE shelf exam performance
  • Step 2 CS, Step 2 CK, Step 3, COMLEX, NP, In-Training exams, or Board Certification exams- if concerns relate to clinical problem solving or fund of knowledge
  • Clinical Skills Electives
  • Independent Study Courses
  • Study skills as related to clinical work

Pre-Clinical

Pre-clinical students should contact Christine Woolf, PhD Director of Academic Enrichment Programs for the following concerns:

  • Performance in courses
  • Test taking skills
  • Study skills
  • Time management
  • Error analysis of exams
  • Memorization
  • Organization
  • Reading comprehension
  • Note taking
  • Step 1, NCLEX, and MCAT preparation
  • Step 2 CK, Step 2 CS, Step 3, COMLEX, NP exams, In-Service Training exams, and Board Certification exams- if concerns relate to developing a study schedule or developing more efficient and effective ways to study

How we operate

We generally begin by meeting with the client in order to develop a needs assessment which lays the groundwork for the collaborative development of an individualized educational plan. We decide together how often to meet and how to proceed. Sometimes a few sessions is all that is needed and at other times a one month Clinical Skills Elective is chosen.

Appropriate Treatment of Students

The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), in accordance with its mission statement and operating principles, and as required for accreditation by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME), has developed this policy to help ensure the appropriate treatment of students (ATS). This procedure is specifically required for the accreditation of the School of Medicine, and has also been approved by the deans of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Graduate School of Nursing, and Graduate Medical Education.

To the extent possible, it is the policy of UMMS to provide a learning environment that fosters mutual trust and understanding between teachers and students. When all participants in the educational process at UMMS understand and uphold the standards of appropriate treatment of students, the environment enhances teaching, learning and professional development, to the benefit of all.

The purpose of this complaint policy is to provide an avenue for prompt follow-up on allegations of inappropriate treatment, and to do so in a non-adversarial and respectful manner that satisfies all parties involved. Should investigation of a complaint be warranted, UMMS is committed to conducting it thoroughly, promptly, and impartially.

This policy is designed for any student who believes s/he has been subjected to inappropriate treatment under the standards defined for this campus. These standards, which adhere to AAMC guidelines and LCME accreditation requirements, apply to the School of Medicine, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Graduate School of Nursing, Graduate Medical Education, and to any UMMS school hereinafter established.

Title IX

It is the policy of the University of Massachusetts Worcester (“UMW”) [also referred to as the University of Massachusetts Medical School (“UMMS”)] to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681 et seq., and its implementing regulations, 34 C.F.R. Part 106, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment of students, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Sexual violence refers to physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent due to the victim’s use of drugs or alcohol or due to an intellectual or other disability. A number of acts may fall into the category of sexual violence, including rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, non-consensual video or audio taping of sexual activity, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking incidents and sexual coercion. All such acts of sexual violence are forms of sexual harassment covered under Title IX.

The  Diversity and Inclusion Office (DIO)  is available to students, faculty and staff with respect to any questions and concerns about sexual harassment, sexual violence or other forms of discrimination on the basis of sex.

Employment Opportunities

Teaching Assistants

We are seeking a few students in the fourth year of study or beyond to act as teaching assistants (TAs) for the new Career Pathways Communities launching this Spring. This paid opportunity involves a commitment of ~4 hours per week, mid-March through May.

Your major responsibility will be to act as a Community Leader for one or two communities, co-facilitating the community meetings along with an outside PhD-trained scientist who has experience in the career pathway. As a TA, you will gain experience important for teaching in active-learning classrooms: group facilitation, classroom management, analyzing formative assessments, using and refining lesson plans, working with a co-facilitator, and giving constructive feedback. A further description of the Community Leader role is provided below.

You will work closely with and receive training from Center for Biomedical Career Development (cBCD) staff. As a TA, you will provide feedback that will inform further development of the community experience. You will also gain experience collecting and interpreting evaluation data as part of the cBCD’s educational evaluation efforts funded by our NIH BEST grant.

We are looking for interested students who are willing to commit about 36 hours of work, distributed from mid-March through May. TAs will be paid $630 for this work at the end of the experience. Students on F1 visas are eligible.

If you are selected to be a TA, your research supervisor must provide a brief letter indicating support for your participation. We strongly recommend that you have a preliminary conversation with your supervisor now, so that you can rapidly secure their letter of support upon notification of selection.

If interested, please fill out the application at this link: https://GSBS.formstack.com/forms/career_pathways_community_ta 

Applications are due by Wednesday, March 1. Review of applications will begin on March 2. Please contact morgan.thompson@umassmed.edu with any questions.

Graduate Student Body Committee (GSBC) 

The Graduate Student Body Council (GSBC) is a group of elected students who serve as the voice of graduate students on campus. By serving on committees with faculty, we represent student interests and help in decision-making. An important goal of the GSBC is to keep graduate students informed about new policies regarding their thesis work.  We gain insight from students about changes they would like to see happen at UMass Medical School and work hard to implement these changes. One of our major goals is to further relationships between graduate students on campus, in addition to interprofessional relationships with both the medical and nursing students. The GSBC encourages fellow colleagues in their studies, hosting events for first-year students during their core coursework. We offer social events throughout the year to foster friendships and support groups and hold local volunteer activities such as Working for Worcester and Habitat for Humanity. We also partner with the Career and Professional Development group and host events for students that help prepare them for their career path of interest.
