Skill Session Volunteers Needed

The School of Medicine is seeking volunteer instructors to facilitate a technique-focused, procedural skills training day for our incoming 3rd year medical students. The objective is to educate all 340+ incoming 3rd year students about common procedural skills before they are encountered during various clinical experiences throughout the state.

This year’s event will happen June 9th, at the Simulation Center at Fairbanks Hall (Suite 4100). Volunteer instructors are needed to teach peripheral IV access, airway management, arterial puncture, and Foley catheter insertion. We are looking for faculty, resident and inter-professional instructors from various departments within the School of Medicine and other units on campus to assist with this training effort.

Please consider assisting us in this once-a-year endeavor. The preferred time commitment is at least a four hour block either in the morning (8a-12n) or the afternoon (1p-5p). Educational materials, structure of the sessions, materials, etc. will be provided. Your involvement will make this effort that much more successful for both teachers and learners.

We are happy to address your questions. If you are interested in participating in this event please email Rhonda Kelly at Please, indicate the skills station(s) that you would be willing to help with as well as the preferred time (am or pm). Thank you for your support of undergraduate medical education at IUSM.

Best Regards,
