MS3 Class Information – June 2, 2022

Update on the Patient Care Phase Survey (only for students completing OSCE, Objective Structured Clinical Examinations): Fill it out and enter to win

This is a message from Sara Kim, Associate Dean for Educational Quality Improvement: Thank you for raising the survey response rate to 45.8 percent from 29.7 percent in a week! It’s really inspiring to see the level of your engagement with the survey. I thank you.

Looking at the regional campus level, Montana students are already at 73.3 percent (up 30 percentage points), recording the highest survey response rate within two weeks of a survey launch in the school’s history that I have been tracking! Simply amazing.

And the story continues. Both Wyoming and Spokane students doubled the response rate over one week: Wyoming at 50 percent vs. 25 percent, Spokane at 33.3 percent vs. 16.7 percent. Idaho students, you are doing great at the rate of 47.5 percent (up from 30 percent by 17.5 percentage points), followed by Seattle (43.7 percent vs. 32 percent, an increase of 11.7 percentage points) and Alaska (45 percent vs. 40 percent, up five percentage points). All in all, very admirable progress.
