Dr. Audrey Paulman contributes to Physicians Bulletin

Physicians Bulletin, a bimonthly publication of the Metro Omaha Medical Society, celebrated 150 years by looking back on the history of MOMS and medicine in the metro.

Family Medicine Clinical Professor, Audrey Paulman, MD, MMM, contributed to the January/February 2016 issue with “A History of Omaha’s “Unrivalled Facilities”‘. Along with John Schleicher, MA, Associate Professor & Head of Special Collection at the McGoogan Library of Medicine, Dr. Paulman explores the hospitals of Omaha’s past including the Omaha Maternity Hospital and the Radium Hospital.

The article features several photos of the historic hospitals, and as the story states, “Omaha has been home to a number of hospitals over the decades, some of which lasted while others did not.”

Past issues of the Physicians Bulletin can be found on the Metro Omaha Medical Society website.

The 2016 Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Student Education Meeting featured several opportunities to learn new skills and gain new ideas while attending several education sessions and workshops.

Family Medicine Clinical Associate Professor, William Hay, M.D., presented at the conference in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, January 30. Dr. Hay, along with four other authors, held a seminar titled “The Interprofessional Preceptor“.

The session had a valuable takeaway for participants. Those attending learned to facilitate interprofessional small groups of learners, precept interprofessional teams of learners and convene an Interprofessional Preceptor faculty development workshop at their home institution utilizing the new resources upon their return home to advance and champion the work.
