About 800 people with varying degrees of access to quality dental care lined up for Dental Mission Week at UMMC as event organizers regrew the event after two scaled-down years due to the pandemic. Veterans, those with special needs and area school students are among this year’s recipients of a wide range of dental services made possible by major sponsorships and other donations.

When someone with significant burns comes to the Medical Center’s Emergency Department, that’s not the only injury that gets sharp focus. Burn injuries are treated as traumatic injuries at UMMC, and a multidisciplinary team quickly assesses these patients for all care needs. Other traumatic injuries – for example, fractures or head trauma from an accident, or heart damage from electrocution – can be just as severe as their burns.
The test is known as Step 1 – and it is one giant step for medical students. Faculty members charged with better preparing them for the test, not least of all Dr. Kathleen Yee and Dr. Audra Schaefer, are being recognized for, in the words one administrator, “achieving the impossible.”
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming week at the Medical Center.
Medical Center leadership is proud to announce the following additions to its faculty and leadership staff.
