English, M.D., addresses Congress on behalf of veterans New York Medical College A Health Sciences University in the Catholic Tradition As the Class of 2007 s days at New York Medical College draw to a close and the 148th Commencement exercises draw near, Jo Ivey Boufford, M.D., president of The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), is preparing to deliver this year s Commencement keynote address. The traditional pomp and ceremony of graduation will take place at Carnegie Hall on Thursday, May 24 at 5:00 p.m. Dr. Boufford, who will be awarded an honorary doctorate of science degree at Commencement, took office as president of NYAM on February 1. Her extensive background and experience in health care, public policy and academia make her a natural fit to lead the 159-year-old institution, which works to enhance the health of the people living in cities worldwide through research, education, advocacy and prevention. A board certified pediatrician, Dr. Boufford is clinical professor of pediatrics at New York University School of Medicine and professor of public service, health policy and management at the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University, where she was dean from 1997 to Prior to that, she served under President Bill Clinton, first as principal deputy assistant secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and then as acting assistant secretary, taking part in the administration s effort continued on page 6

2 President shares his vision with the College community The audience that filled Nevins Hindsight shows that medical schools that join Auditorium almost to capacity on the with hospitals face major financial problems when morning of February 28 to hear Karl P. the medical center gets into trouble, dragging Adler, M.D., president and chief executive officer, the school down. Right now there isn t a robust share his vision for the future of New York health system with which we could affiliate, Medical College was noisy and restless at the so we ve turned to the university partnership outset. But when the new university leader option. Our goal is to find a healthy, appropriate took the lectern to deliver his talk entitled, A Perspective on New York Medical College We need a true vision of what Now and Into the Future (From an Old Dean New York Medical College is, and a New President), a hush descended. and we need to set goals based Faculty, administration and a number of on that vision. students who assembled for the early start time Karl P. Adler, M.D. were prepared to listen intently, and to ask probing questions when the time came. university partner to join with so that all parties They didn t have long to wait to hear from the can benefit, he said. And that s what we ve set man and the plan about whom everyone s out to do in the very near future. been talking for weeks. Central to Dr. Adler s vision to restore New York Medical College to Citing an exchange of strengths as the most a more robust state is his plan to align the practical reason for such a move, Dr. Adler College with another university. We have a lot elaborated on how students and faculty can of tough challenges that are not going away, benefit from what he termed a full-service he said. If we want to continue to grow, we need university... We can offer them our prestige as a to seek a relationship with another university, quality health sciences institution that turns out and we need to do this without delay. Three excellent graduates, and our world-renowned Catholic universities are under consideration, research strength. They can offer us exposure to a he said: Fordham University in New York City, broad range of academic disciplines. Affiliating Seton Hall University in New Jersey and St. with a university that offers M.B.A.s, law degrees John s University in Queens. and graduate degrees in the humanities, for example, would add value and incentive to students seeking a graduate program in the health sciences. He added that in the 21st century, it s not enough to offer a finite range of health sciences degrees, however strong they may be. Adding more choices to our academic offerings to attract more prospective students has to be one of the driving forces in our considerations. Karl P. Adler, M.D., president and chief executive officer, responded to some difficult questions and frank opinions that the audience offered to him at the February 28 town meeting. Additional advantages to having an academic partner include reducing He elaborated on how his plan emerged: When I administrative costs and improving philanthropy was here during the late 1980s and early 1990s, by centralizing efforts in both areas. there were 16 free-standing, independent medical Dr. Adler ticked off the challenges currently facing schools in the country. Today there are only two: the College as it continues its efforts to ease Chicago Medical College and New York Medical ongoing financial strains. A lack of space needed College. One by one, the others have aligned with to increase research and improve student quality health systems or universities. Many of those of life, a financially troubled hospital affiliation schools had a systemic deficit, and found it difficult to increase their fundraising, he said. They network, and a student debt burden that ranks the College at number 6 out of 125 medical schools found they needed a partnership to achieve full are three of the most challenging obstacles that, financial health. if left untended, will make it difficult for the institution to thrive in the future, he said. Yet Dr. Adler asserted that competing for students is not his only priority. Financial concerns play a major role as well. While the College is making some progress in reducing its $3.5 million deficit, that figure is small compared to the cash the university needs to perform at its best, he said. Bringing the School of Public Health to its full potential, redeveloping the former American Health Foundation building to expand research and clinical space, building a gym to improve student life, and offering scholarships to reduce the burgeoning student debt burden all will require a much larger investment, he explained. During the question and answer period following his 30-minute presentation, Dr. Adler addressed issues that were uppermost in the minds of his audience, reiterating his four major criteria for choosing a university partner: they must be financially stable, must have a law school and other schools in the humanities, must be interested in expanding health sciences offerings, and must be successful in fundraising. Dr. Adler also touched on the subject of the College s Catholic tradition. The Archdiocese of New York originally became involved with New York Medical College to improve the quality of care and support graduate education programs in Catholic hospitals, he explained. Yet very soon, there will remain only one Catholic hospital in the entire city of New York. We need to reexamine the priorities. The Archdiocese could be extremely helpful in aiding us to gain new resources. I m going to try very hard to get that support. Dr. Adler was adamant that any agreement with a university must preserve the prestigious name and identity of New York Medical College and would not result in any loss of independence of the 147-year-old institution. I don t want any doctors out there practicing with a degree from a medical college that no longer exists, he stated frankly, noting that the College is nationally recognized for its world-class faculty and scientific research. He added that the College s identity must be clear and strong. We need a true vision of what New York Medical College is, and we need to set goals based on that vision, he said in closing. We have to ask ourselves questions such as, What kind of graduates do we want to produce in the future? What kinds of healthcare professionals will be needed as systems and methods of healthcare are redefined? That s how you build a new vision and that s why I m excited about the future. It s a golden opportunity for New York Medical College. Copies of Dr. Adler s presentation are available in VHS format at the Health Sciences Library. 2

3 Class of 2007 meets its match Nervous anticipation quickly turned to elation and shrieks of delight as the clock struck noon on March 15. That s when members of the Class of 2007 tore open the envelopes containing letters from the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) telling them where they will be spending their residencies. No doubt the scene in the lobby of the Medical Education Center was similar to those taking place at every medical school in the nation as more than 15,000 graduating seniors found out where they will continue their medical education after graduation. A few minutes before noon, Ralph A. O Connell, M.D., provost and dean of the School of Medicine, and Gladys M. Ayala, M.D., associate dean for student and minority affairs, offered advance congratulations to the students for being accepted into positions in very competitive and wellrespected residency programs. I can t tell you exactly where you ll be going but I can tell you that you ll be at some very prestigious institutions spread across the country from Maine to Hawaii, Joshua Kornbluth checked the board to see if any of his classmates would be joining him at Lenox Hill Hospital, where he landed a PGY-1 appointment in internal medicine followed by neurology at New England Medical Center. Alissa Johnston couldn t wait to tell her family and friends that she matched in obstetrics and gynecology at University of Chicago Hospital. Stephanie Lovinsky, center, was happy to share the news that she will be doing her pediatrics residency at Montefiore/Einstein. She was flanked by her mother, Lilienne, left, and Marva Richards, STEP coordinator in the Office of Minority Affairs. Ms. Lovinsky first met Ms. Richards in 1996 when she was a participant in the Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP), a state-funded college preparatory program for area teens interested in pursuing careers in medicine, science and technology. Sandor Szilagyi, right, didn t miss a beat as he simultaneously smiled for the camera, offered a congratulatory handshake to a classmate and hugged Anna Ahn to celebrate their matches. Mr. Szilagyi will do a residency in internal medicine at Good Samaritan Medical Center in Tucson, Ariz., before he goes on to radiology at Beth Israel Medical. Ms. Ahn will go to Long Island Jewish Medical Center for her residency in internal medicine. Dr. Ayala told the anxious group. It really was a very successful match. You should be as proud of yourselves as we are of you. The NRMP was established in 1952, at the request of medical students, to provide a fair and impartial way to pair applicants with U.S. residency programs. The system uses a computer algorithm to align top choices of the applicants with preferences of the residency programs. The number of applicants nationwide increased by nearly 200 from last year. Although match results are available online, most students preferred to find out about their residencies the old-fashioned way by opening an envelope in the company of their classmates and How the Class of 2007 matched up Total students matched: 177 Career choices: Internal Medicine Pediatrics Radiology Diagnostic.. 21 Ob/Gyn Surgery - General Emergency Medicine Anesthesiology Neurology Family Practice Ophthalmology Psychiatry Orthopaedic Surgery Otorhinolaryngology Neurosurgery Pathology Dermatology Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Urology Radiation Oncology Medicine-Pediatrics Child Neurology Matches at College affiliates: St. Vincent s Hospital Manhattan Westchester Medical Center Danbury Hospital The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary St. Vincent s Hospital Staten Island East coast vs. West coast: Matches in New York: 42% Matches in California: 20% friends. After cheers, hugs and congratulations were exchanged among the future physicians, many stepped outside for some quiet to call their families and friends to tell them where the next phase of their careers in medicine will begin. The exhilarating event earned a front page spread in The Journal News. For more photos and results of Match Day, please visit Center for Disaster Medicine reaches out to hospital community The Center for Disaster Medicine and the Hudson Valley Regional Resource Center at Westchester Medical Center co-hosted a New York State Department of Health videoconference at the School of Public Health on March 16. The videoconference introduced a draft of the Allocation of Ventilators in an Influenza Pandemic: Planning Document to an audience of chief medical officers, emergency department directors, directors of nursing, critical care directors, emergency preparedness managers and other healthcare workers from acute care hospitals in the Hudson Valley. The proposed policy was developed by a panel of experts convened by the New York State Task Force in Life and the Law. It seeks to guide hospitals in setting up systems to allocate ventilators in a pandemic crisis, possibly providing some legal protections to hospitals that follow its recommendations in good faith. It also spells out the ethical issues and provides a clinical algorithm and suggested procedures for hospitals to allocate ventilators in a pandemic crisis. The 90-minute videoconference was followed by a 30-minute discussion. 3

4 Graduate Student Research Forum manifests a multitude of investigative works Ph.D. candidate Shreekrishna Maharjan, expounded his research at the poster gallery in the Willner Atrium and Lobby of the Medical Education Center to Norman Levine, Ph.D., professor of physiology. Later in the day Dr. Levine was presented with the Graduate Student Association s Outstanding Faculty Award. Winners of the 19th Annual Graduate Student Research Forum joined Francis L. Belloni, Ph.D., far right, dean of the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences, for a celebratory photo. From left were: Yester Skayian; Min Hong; Yue Fu; Nicolas Kummer; Qun Gao; Alexander Leedom; Elvira Liclican; Jennifer Cheng; Robert Suriano; and Sini Skariah. Qiong Qin is not pictured. Dr. Belloni, left, and Carl I. Thompson, Ph.D., associate professor and graduate program director in the Department of Physiology and faculty advisor for the forum, reviewed some last-minute notes from judges before the winners were announced. While waiting for the scores to be tabulated, Christopher Pappas, M.S. 06, left, a Ph.D. candidate and president of the Graduate Student Association, and Sowmya Tewari, second from right, research forum vice president, took a moment with the mistress of ceremonies, Joan L. Sagurton, Ph.D. 90, and keynote speaker Alan M. Fogelman, M.D. The 19th Annual Graduate Student Research Forum (GSRF) held on March 22 was a day with a markedly full agenda as 9 students presented their research orally and 21 students displayed their work in poster format. Alan M. Fogelman, M.D., the Castera Professor of Cardiology and executive chairman of the Department of Medicine at David Geffen School of Medicine at University of California at Los Angeles and director of the Atherosclerosis Research Unit in the UCLA Division of Cardiology, presented the keynote speech. This portion of the day s events is quite unique to our forum and really provides students with a better understanding of who the speaker is outside the lecture hall. Sowmya Tewari To keep the busy day moving along, Joan L. Sagurton, Ph.D. 90, was welcomed as the alumna mistress of ceremonies. Dr. Sagurton, an adjunct assistant professor of microbiology and immunology who teaches medical students about infectious diseases and malaria, also runs her own laboratory and is the supervisor of the microbiology department at the Orange Regional Medical Center, Horton Campus, in Middletown, N.Y. Dr. Fogelman s speech, When the Good Cholesterol Goes Bad Can We Make It Better? which focused on high density lipoprotein (HDL), generally considered good cholesterol, caught the attention of faculty researchers and clinicians alike, who filled the seats in Nevins Auditorium along with students. The forum schedule also set aside some time for students to participate in interactive sessions with Drs. Fogelman and Sagurton no faculty allowed. The candid Q&A discussions covered a range of topics from research and science to personal lives and career paths. This portion of the day s events is quite unique to our forum and really provides students with a better understanding of who the speaker is outside the lecture hall, said Sowmya Tewari, research forum vice president in the Graduate Student Association. This year s Graduate Student Association Outstanding Faculty Award was presented to Norman Levine, Ph.D., professor of physiology, at the end of the forum.

5 Joseph T. English, M.D., addresses Congress on behalf of veterans Appointments & Promotions After the hearing Joseph T. English, M.D., right, professor and chairman of the Department of Psychiatry, caught up with U.S. Representative Michael Michaud (D-Maine), chairman of the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs. When Joseph T. English, M.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Psychiatry, testified before the U.S. Congress in support of the Department of Veterans Affairs budget request last month, he was officially speaking as a past president of the American Psychiatric Association. But he was also speaking as the father of a former marine captain of combat infantry who has served in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Dr. English s son, Patrick, just recently finished seven years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps. His last assignment was to serve as aide de camp of the Commanding General of the Fourth Marine Division, where he addressed the problems of wounded Marines and their families cared for by the Veteran s Administration. So when Dr. English talked about veterans with head injuries, posttraumatic stress disorders and problems with substance abuse, he was remembering the two emotional visits he made to Pearl Harbor to meet Patrick and his infantry, each time returning from a war zone. He was also thinking about the wounded and traumatized soldiers at the College-affiliated VA Hudson Valley Health Care System. Those personal connections gave Dr. English s testimony greater impact as he stood before the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs in support of President Bush s fiscal year 2008 funding request for the Department of Veteran s Affairs (VA). The Bush administration has asked for a six percent increase over the VA s current budget of $36.6 billion. The American Psychiatric Association pressed for an additional $500 million in every fiscal year until About 16 percent of vets returning from Iraq have posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depression and other mental health problems, Dr. English told the committee, citing a study published in a 2006 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. He said it was difficult to get veterans to fill out forms indicating whether or not they might suffer from mental health issues, because returning soldiers believe that certain responses may prevent them from returning home immediately. Dr. English also cited his experience as the first psychiatrist for the Peace Corps four decades ago, when he instituted completion-of-service conferences to help volunteers get through reverse culture shock when they came back to the United States. Those group sessions helped volunteers understand their overseas experiences, but interviewers also raised questions about psychological difficulties and how they can be overcome. He suggested that an expanded version of those exit interviews might be adapted for use with returning troops today. Another concern for veterans is the prolonged effects of closed head injuries suffered during explosions. Soldiers with even mild cases of the closed head injuries commonly occurring in Iraq and Afghanistan should be identified now and followed to observe later onset of psychiatric symptoms or early development of Alzheimer s or Parkinson s disease, said Dr. English. He explained that while the armor worn in the military today is very effective in preventing visible injuries, it may mask head injuries that can lead to serious problems in later years. We don t want to have people arguing 10 years from now that these illnesses are not service connected when there is great concern that these injuries may have such an effect on earlier onset, Dr. English pronounced. He suggested that the VA coordinate with the Department of Defense to develop standardized follow-up protocols with appropriate clinical assessment methods to identify neurological or behavioral consequences of traumatic brain injury. He said the VA and the Defense Department should improve collaboration on a seamless transition for providing care as soldier families become veteran families. For instance, stronger mental health parity laws covering private health insurers are needed to improve access to care for members of the National Guard and Reserves, who often live in rural areas far from VA hospitals. Only an informal network of support groups are available now to help families develop the skills to cope when a soldier has PTSD, Dr. English told the committee. He gave one example of a young man who was admitted to Walter Reed Army Medical Center with a life-threatening head injury. The returning soldier made good progress and was discharged to return home to California. That s when bureaucratic red tape prevented him from receiving after care at a facility equipped to handle his injuries, and the young man started to regress, explained Dr. English. We need to make sure that follow-up care is appropriate and that our veterans are assigned to the right hospitals when they leave Walter Reed. SCHOOL OF MEDICINE Appointments: Mitchell S.

We are also concerned about disparities in care due to the remaining stigma about mental illness among some in the VA bureaucracy, and concern about psychiatric care and patient safety, Dr. English said. Many families need help in understanding what financial aid and other benefits are available to them and how to receive them in a timely way. The description of the benefits and eligibility for them can vary from one VA region to another, confronting families with difficult problems. He said locating VA mental health services in primary care facilities would improve access to mental health services. We are hopeful that with continued education on organic brain changes that occur with combat stress, the stigma against mental illness will be greatly diminished, said Dr. English. 5

6 C AMPUS ROUNDS Student groups band together to raise awareness about violence against women and children Domestic violence awareness got a lift with the aid of several student organizations on campus who helped bring the Clothesline Project to Valhalla. From left: first-year medical student Noorjahan Ali, chapter president-elect of AMA-MSS; and second-years Alexis Rothenberg, AMWA chapter president, Ariadne Avellino, AMA-MSS chapter president, Jesse Levin, P.E.O.P.L.E. in Medicine club president; and Esther Kaoi, chair human rights subcommittee, AMA-MSS chapter. Tee shirts hanging on a clothesline are not what one would expect to see upon entering the Medical Education Center lobby. But on February 22 and 23, that is precisely what had people stopping and gazing and sometimes even gasping. Several student groups, including the AMA-MSS human rights sub-committee, AMWA, AMSA, P.E.O.P.L.E. in Medicine, the Student Senate and the staff of the student newspaper The Goose, joined together to bring the Clothesline Project to the Valhalla campus to raise awareness about violence against women and children. The Clothesline Project is a display of tee shirts designed by abused women and children. Not merely a tool to raise awareness, the shirts offer victims a way to express their painful experiences and help them achieve healing and closure. It is estimated that there currently 500 projects around the world displaying an estimated 50,000 to 60,000 shirts. Students also invited Laura Bagnarol, coordinator of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program at Victims Assistance Services (VAS), a not-for-profit agency in Westchester County, to speak at the College. Ms. Bagnarol is responsible for recruiting medical professionals who are interested in becoming specially trained to perform the forensic medical exam needed for victims of sexual assault.

Dean of the School of Public Health addresses Franklin Delano Roosevelt Student Convocation College announces retention policy enforcement Effective May 1, 2007, messages older than 90 days will be automatically purged from the College s system. Nearly 5,000 active mailboxes in the College s system, storing more than 13 million unique messages, are beginning to overburden the server, making it vulnerable to reliability problems, according to John C. Hammond, chief information officer. The directive will eliminate approximately 8 million messages from the system that are more than 90 days old. users will be required to properly archive any messages they wish to keep that are older than 90 days. Archived messages are stored on a PC s local hard drive, or in a user-controlled area on a shared server and therefore, do not take up space on the mail server. Robert W. Amler, M.D., dean of the School of Public Health, second from right, was joined by, from left: John Desibia, executive director, March of Dimes Hudson Valley and Northeastern Divisions; Jeffrey S. Urbin, education specialist at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library; and Michael C. Caldwell, M.D., M.P.H., Commissioner of Health, Dutchess County Department of Health, and distinguished lecturer in the School of Public Health. Agroup of 275 high school students from the Hudson Valley had the chance to participate in a student convocation held on February 27 at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, N.Y. They left armed with valuable information after hearing the keynote address, How to Save Lives, Millions at a Time, given by Robert W. Amler, M.D., dean of the New York Medical College School of Public Health. Dr. Amler s presentation on vaccine preventable diseases and immunizations caught the attention of the teenagers and he received stellar reviews from the students. Their comments were candid and full of praise: outstanding speaker; personable and in tune with a younger audience, kept our attention, wasn t boring and to the point, and the doctor didn t talk over our heads. Presented by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum and the March of Dimes, the student convocation seeks to increase student awareness of the biomedical sciences, particularly as they relate to birth defects and to encourage students to pursue studies in related fields. The convocation also emphasizes the importance of leadership and volunteerism through familiarity with Franklin Delano Roosevelt s legacy. The March of Dimes, founded in 1938 by Franklin D. Roosevelt to stop polio epidemics, today funds research, community services and educational and advocacy programs to save babies lives. The usage and security policy, originally adopted in 1998, is in accordance with the College s record retention policy, currently in development. It has recently become crucial to adhere to this policy because of the increasing number of users, the frequency and criticality of use and the size and number of mail attachments that users have been accumulating. Today if goes down, it s a major issue. If is down for more than a few hours, it s a calamity, said Mr. Hammond. Purging messages that are not properly archived after 90 days will help us make the electronic mail system more reliable in that it will significantly improve the stability of the system. Be sure to check your announcements for more information on the retention policy and for suggestions regarding the archiving process. 7
