Amy Bryant, MD, MSCR presented alongside fourth year medical students from the UNC School of Medicine at the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics Faculty Development Seminar in Amelia Island, FL.
Dr. Bryant serves as a faculty advisor for Brittany Cureton, MPH, Sophia McFarlane, MPH, and Madeline Thornton, MPH. The three students are currently in their fourth year of medical school and presented on the work they have done over the past year as medical student chiefs. One of their workshops, “Social Media Gems: Polishing Your Presence to Make your Clerkship #Sparkle,” focused on the power of social media and how it can be used as a supplement to medical educational materials for students in clinical years.
The workshop “Leading with Clarity: Cultivating Ob-Gyn Medical Student Chiefs as Leaders and Advocates” focused on the role of medical student chiefs in enhancing medical education, advocating for women’s health in medical education, and addressing women’s health disparities. “The two workshops highlighted the work these students have been doing over the last year in their roles as 4th year medical student chiefs who enhance the curriculum for 3rd year medical students doing their Ob/Gyn clerkship,” said Dr. Bryant. “These interactive, engaging sessions received positive feedback from the participants.”
