HONORS OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.	ANNOUNCEMENT: Phi Beta Kappa Membership:
Tapped to join Phi Beta Kappa this semester? Don't toss the invitation into the trash, thinking this is one more solicitation for your hard-earned cash. Getting selected for this honorary society is a great accomplishment and recognized by grad schools, law and med schools as meaning you are among the best students academically at your institution. 

Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's oldest, most selective, and most prestigious liberal arts honor society. Dr. Knudson and Dr. Johnson are both proud members! Dr. K is also the UF chapter vice president. 

Phi Beta Kappa will be noted on your transcript and will make a very nice line on your resume. It also has some prestigious awards for graduate study, so if you are a member, take a look at the national website to see what is available. Also see below for an internship opportunity to write for their website next fall.

Standards for election into Phi Beta Kappa are extremely high, and membership is by invitation only. Outstanding GPA is only one consideration, and distribution and diversity of coursework in the liberal arts and sciences is another. For more information, visit http://www.honors.ufl.edu/PBK/Home.aspx or http://www.pbk.org

11.	ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Emergency and Wilderness Medicine Summer Program in Colorado:
The inaugural University of Colorado School of Medicine Pre-Med Emergency & Wilderness Medicine Program, designed specifically for undergraduate students (or recent grads) interested in medical, nursing, PA, PT, or dental school (or other related health professions) is now available for registration. Registration is now open for three offerings of the program this summer: June 1-13; August 8-20; and August 20-September 1.

The hospital-based first week will includes lectures from experts in international humanitarian relief, wilderness medicine and disaster response work; an ambulance ride-along with paramedic crews; shadowing residents and faculty physicians in a world-class emergency room; and hands-on skills labs including CPR, suturing, splinting and ultrasound workshops. 

The second week takes students to a basecamp located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains to focus on applying skills learned during the initial coursework. Learn or enhance outdoor skills such as map and compass, backpacking, canoeing, and rock climbing. Participate in authentic, scenario-based learning designed to teach the skills necessary to prevent, assess, and treat a variety of backcountry challenges and emergencies ranging from blisters to major trauma. 

In addition to learning about emergency and wilderness medicine, students will meet with members of medical school admissions committees and get the inside scoop on the medical school application process.  Students will also have time get to know successful emergency room physicians (as well as PAs, paramedics, and nurses), and learn what it takes to excel in a medical career. 

This unique program includes all instruction, labs and simulations, EMS ride-alongs, Emergency Department shadowing, lunches and snacks, a week at a local camp (all food and lodging included), recreational activities, transportation to and from camp, group camping gear, and a certificate of completion.  It does not include breakfasts, dinners, and lodging for the first week, nor personal camping equipment.

Five to six full scholarships are available for each of the three 2014 sections. To apply for a scholarship, potential students can contact Dr. Todd Miner at [log in to unmask]

At the completion of the two-week hands-on program, students will have gained invaluable exposures to emergency and wilderness medicine. Students will better understand the track to medical school and have obtained a valuable addition to their application to medical or other health professional schooling. They will benefit from getting to know medical school faculty and inside knowledge regarding a successful medical career, and perhaps most importantly, they will have gained the skills to treat and/or save the life of a friend or family member in the event of an emergency in the backcountry or just the backyard.
	
You can learn more about the program at http://www.coloradowm.org/undergraduate_courses.html, or directly register at https://www.regonline.com/UofColoEmergWildMed

12.	COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: MCB 4934 Exploring Career Opportunities/Development in (Micro)Biology:
MCB4934 is intended to benefit students making career decisions and organizing their academic credentials to support these decisions. The class will be taught as a lecture/presentation and discussion/activity hands-on course with emphasis on exploring a wide variety of career opportunities in professional schools, academia, industry and alternative professions for (micro)-biology majors and related fields. Throughout the semester a diversity of successful guest speakers will be available for the students to interact with the students and to share their experiences. The students will receive personalized career development feedback from a variety of successful scientists. This interaction with successful scientists in the various career domains will be beneficial to prepare students for successful and rewarding futures, both as balance to and for those not pursuing academic and medical career opportunities. 
 
This class is well suited for pre-professional students to gain insight to obtain internships, embark on post-graduate (bridge) options and to understand that many successful careers have a very non-linear and unconventional path.
 
We encourage you to take the in class session as the one-to-one interaction with the speakers can be extremely valuable.
