Snellgrove John

So you got into med school! Congratulations! I’m sure you’ll be thankful you chose to pursue your MD here at UAB. I’m sure you’re excited to get started. It won’t be long before your life is going to change pretty drastically.  This will be a brand new season of life for you all, a start into a new profession.  You’re going to learn… a lot!  Most of your learning will come through lectures, small groups, labs, but some of your learning is much more difficult to streamline into a powerpoint or study guide.  Furthermore, it will be difficult to assess this learning with computerized or written exams. The type of learning I’m talking about is learning how to live in a healthy and responsible way as a medical student and future physician.  This is where Learning Communities come in.  The goal of the LC program is to equip medical students to be healthy physician leaders one day.  This goal is accomplished through a variety of different things. - John Snellgrove, MS3 LC Rep for Kirklin Community #wolfpack
