1. Editor's Corner

Carol Baffi-Dugan

I suspect that everyone who attended the 2010 NAAHP meeting in Atlanta, Georgia would agree that it was informative, interesting, affirming and fun.

2. Medical Competency and Premedical Curricular Dialogues in Atlanta

Gail S. Begley,Ph.D., Joseph DeMasi, Ph.D.,
Janet De Souza-Hart, Ph.D., Jan Reichard-Brown, Ph.D.,
David L. Thurlow, Ph.D.

At the 19th annual meeting of the NAAHP in Atlanta, GA, there were two plenary sessions focusing on different consequences of a report, sponsored by the AAMC and the HHMI, on SFFP.

3. Students Assisting Students: How to Have Exceptional Peer Advisors

David A. Kaiser, Ed.D., A.T.C., L.A.T.

Very commonly health professions advisors are asked to do more and more with less and less. This is especially true in the current economic situation that challenges each of us.

4. Committee Evaluations for Small Colleges

Diane R. Kiino, Ph.D.

This report summarizes a presentation on letter strategies for schools with lower volumes of applicants at the 2010 NAAHP meeting in Atlanta, GA.

5. Professionalism Takes Time: Strategies for Engaging Students

Candice Eisenhauer

The number one reason I hear for a student wanting to enter a health profession is “I want to help people.”

6. First Generation College Students

Charlie Scruggs, M.A.

At the NAAHP National Meeting in June in Atlanta, a panel composed of both prehealth advisors and admissions personnel shared varied experiences working with first generation students from a range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

7. Grade Progressions for Individual Students Through Introductory Biology and Chemistry Courses: What Your Grade Books May Not Be Telling You

Jim Shinkle, Ph.D.
John Orange
Diane Saphire, Ph.D.

Although it ended someplace very different, this study started from a desire to better advise students whose first semester did not go well.

8. Applying Helping Professions Skills to Health Professions Advising

Rachel Andrews, M.S.

Since my background and graduate training was in mental health counseling, I found the transition to advising a relatively simple one.

9. Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine: Now a Mainstream Career Choice

David Sale, J.D., LL.M.
Catherine Niemiec, J.D., L.Ac.

Although the history of acupuncture and Oriental medicine (AOM) extends over a period of 3,000 years, its practice in the U.S before the 1970s was first confined within Asian communities associated with work on the transcontinental railroad in the 1840s.

10. Book Review: On Call in Hell: A Doctor’s Iraq War Story

Karen de Olivares, Ph.D.

Against the muted colors in the hotel ballroom, the crisp, white dress uniform stood out as Commander Jadick strode to the podium.
