Amelia Bartholomew, MD, MPH, FACS
Department of Surgery, UIC College of Medicine Amelia Bartholomew, MD, MPH, FACS, serves as Chief of Translational Research in the Department of Surgery at the University of Illinois, with adjunct appointments in bioengineering, anatomy, and the cancer center. She also serves as an educator, directing medical student surgical education and curriculum for the University of Illinois College of Medicine, teaching 184-195 medical students the topic of surgery each year. She completed her MD at Northwestern University, surgical residency at the University of Illinois, a multi-organ transplant fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and a masters of public health with an emphasis on nutrition at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. For this project, the goal is to expand student capacity for learning and retention of surgery. Metrics of success will include the end of course exam at 8 weeks and the end of year national board exam at 9 months.
App Goal: To send daily short-read content to student phones which students may read in 5-10 minutes while in between cases or waiting for rounds or in other short down times. This content will have the format of a 700-850 word document with figures and or tables which encapsulate a critical tenant of surgery. The content ends with 2-3 multiple choice questions. Questions would be provided repetitively to maximize retention.
