Paid summer research opportunity for TCOM students- Medical Student Training in Aging Research – MSTAR – Applications Open


UNTHSC- MSTAR program: Institute level program sponsored by IHA.

Deadline for application is March 1st, 2020 (midnight).

We are seeking applications from TCOM students for the Medical Student Training in Aging Research (MSTAR) program administered by the Institute for Healthy Aging (IHA) at UNTHSC. This is a paid summer research opportunity with a $1000 stipend. The MSTAR-IHA program will provide TCOM students (who will have completed Year-I by June 2020) an educational experience in geriatrics clinics and aging-related research, under the guidance of top experts in geriatrics and aging. The students will participate in Clinical shadowing in geriatrics that will be counted towards the TCOM Year-II preceptor requirement. The students will be introduced to research and academic experiences early in their training that they might not otherwise have during medical school. This is 6-week structured research, clinical preceptor in geriatrics, appropriate to their level of training and interests. Research projects are offered in clinical/basic/ translational or health services research relevant to older people. The scholars will do their training and research during the summer of 2020. The students will compete for a total of 6 awards.
Students will be notified on 15th March 2020 regarding selection.
Program dates June 8th  – July 17th, 2020. (Tentative dates depend on the TCOM schedule. Might vary by 1 week.)

If you have any further questions or need guidance with the application, please contact Dr. Kiran Chaudhari, MD Ph.D., Coordinator, MSTAR, at OR Dr. Janice Knebl, DO MBA, Director, Center for Geriatrics at

TCU/UNTHSC School of Medicine Grand Rounds–Dr. Leslie Fall


Grand Rounds: “Deepening Cognitive Integration of Basic Science and Clinical Medicine to Support Effective Decision-Making and Entrustment” with Dr. Leslie Fall

Tuesday, February 18, 2020
7:30 AM – 8:30 AM
LIB 110

Presentation Summary:
Innovative curricular models are needed to help learners thrive in 21st-century healthcare. One of the primary roles of medical training programs is to ensure learners develop medical decision-making skills, and to do so with graduated levels of independence. Effective cognitive integration of the basic and clinical science concepts plays an essential role in enhancing diagnostic accuracy and clinical decision-making for novice clinicians. Unfortunately, many students who have demonstrated adequate basic science understanding in the pre-clinical curriculum are often unable to apply this knowledge to clinical problem-solving. This problem often stems from systems-based preclinical teaching that does not adequately support the deeply integrated thinking required in everyday medical practice. Additionally, the basic science understanding of clinical preceptors is often encapsulated, challenging the ability of these faculty to advance learners’ integration of basic and clinical science understanding to justify their clinical decisions. Curricular methods for integrating basic science instruction and for “unpacking” preceptor knowledge and reinforcing its connections to clinical decisions would facilitate learner activation of basic science knowledge, improving both diagnostic accuracy and long-term retention. In return, learners who are able to apply basic science concepts and mechanistic understanding to defend their clinical decisions may improve the clinician preceptor entrustment decisions. In these sessions we will explore new evidence-based teaching methods and learning tools to deepen cognitive integration of basic science into clinical practice to entrust better decision-making. These methods have the power to re-engineer the teaching relationship between basic science and clinical faculty towards the mutually held goal of improving the safety and efficacy of patient care provided by our students.

By the end of the sessions, participants will be able to:
1. Explain the concepts of knowledge organization, cognitive integration and encapsulation;
2. Identify curricular and environmental barriers limiting students’ ability to effectively transfer basic science understanding to clinical practice;
3. Use integrated illness scripts and mechanistic diagrams to unencapsulate and integrate faculty teaching and to assess and advance students’ clinical problem-solving skills:
4. Discuss the importance of cognitive integration to patient care entrustment decisions.
