Throughout this issue, we have focused on the importance of research and the role it can play in your training and foundational understanding of medicine. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the research that AUC conducts on its own programs and services through you, our students.
Twice a year, students are asked to participate in AUC’s anonymous Student Satisfaction Survey. This brief but important tool allows us to gather feedback about AUC’s current programs and services, and to identify areas where we can improve our many student offerings.
In the last survey, for example, you told us that you wanted more communication about clinicals and increased representation with the administration. We used that feedback to create this newsletter and to form a clinical segment of the Student Government Association. Many additional initiatives were developed from the survey—scroll to the bottom for a full list.
The Student Satisfaction Survey is once again open and will remain open through Sunday, November 20, 2016.
We are asking that as many students as possible complete the survey, which takes just five minutes. The more responses we receive, the more confident we will be in discerning feedback that is representative of a majority of students. We appreciate your participation as AUC continues to evolve, improve, and deliver on our mission.
To participate, follow the instructions provided to you in an email from Dean Heidi Chumley. If you did not receive that email or are having trouble finding it, you can contact us to receive a new link.
