We are on the home stretch for wrapping up our 2015-2016 WMSHP year. A big thank you to Danielle Daunais, PharmD, BCACP for her wonderful March presentation, “Long Live the Liver: Updates on the Battle Against Hepatitis C.”
On April 14th we will be back at Uccello’s in Grand Rapids for our annual residency project presentations. The two residents and their project titles are:
- Corinne English – “Dexmedetomidine versus Usual Care for Treatment of Severe Alcohol Withdrawal in the Medical Intensive Care Unit” (Spectrum Health)
- Julie Schmidt – “Feasibility of an Early Discharge Protocol in Patients with New Venous Thromboembolism in an Emergency Department” (Bronson Methodist Hospital)
WMSHP is still accepting scholarship applications from eligible P3 students. The Board increased the scholarship to one $1,000 scholarship and one $500 this year. Applications must be submitted by April 8th, and the winners will be announced at the WMSHP Annual Spring Seminar. For more information, visit wmshp.net/scholarship.
