Over more than a century,they have sustained a medical school that hasgraduated a Western United States record10,000 medical students. The next closest isStanford University, with 7,000 graduates.”In October 2009, the school began a five-yearcelebration of its 100th anniversary. In 1909,the first medical school class of five studentsbegan training at the College of Medical Evangelists, precursor to the LLU School of Medicine. That first class graduated in 1914,meaning that the 100th class will graduate in2014, when the school will conclude its centennial celebration.“During much of the school’s history, thesurrounding communities were largely orangegroves,” Dr. Hadley continues. “For a medicalschool to flourish in this setting is really quiteremarkable.”Reiker Schultz, MD (right), receives his diploma from a smiling Dean Hadleyamidst a fanfare and fireworks shown on the Jumbotron behind the stage.UNIVERSITY RELATIONS WINS EMMYSEmmy Awards name Loma Linda TVshow best in regionBy Patricia ThioHuman Interest – Single Story or Serieshe National Academy of Television Artsand Sciences named “Loma Linda 360”the best health/sciences program and the bestmagazine program in the region at the 37thannual Pacific Southwest Emmy Awards. “Crossing Out Fear,” Patricia Thio, CosminCosma, Loma Linda UniversityTThis past weekend, the LLU office of universityrelations won Emmys in four categories:Health/Science – Program or Special “Loma Linda 360,” episode 3—“Stephanie’sHeart: Part 2,” Michael Wolcott,Larry Kidder, Loma Linda UniversityMagazine Program “Loma Linda 360,” episode 5, Patricia Thio,Maranatha Hay, Cosmin Cosma, Loma LindaUniversityThe university property was purchased at theinsistence of Ellen G.

He also said thebakery now features two great chefs—one dedicated to traditional favorites and the otherconcentrating on European-style artisan bakedgoods and pastries.Ms. Lalas says the university decided to seek anoutside management partnership for the store“None of the employees lost their jobs becauseof the agreement,” she said. “The new management company offered jobs to all of theemployees, and all but two accepted. Those twoaccepted jobs elsewhere.”Loma Linda University School of Medicinegraduates record 10,000th medical student Continued from page 1than 10,000 graduates—has had on health carethroughout the world,” Dr. Hadley continues,“is staggering.’”Dr. Hadley adds, “The LLU School of Medicine is also the longest continuously accreditedmedical school in Southern California.”He attributes the sustained success of theschool in a major part to the community,which has provided a wide variety of educational and training venues for the medicalstudents and residents, as well as patientsthrough whom the students and residents gainexperience. “We could never graduate classeswith more than 150 students if it weren’t forthe other health care institutions in the InlandEmpire that provide critical training experiences for our students,” Dr. Hadley says.On Tuesday, May 31, Dr. Schultz and hisfamily started on a cross-country journey thatwill take them to Cincinnati, Ohio, where Dr.Schultz will begin an internal medicine resi-Calling the changes “exciting,” Mr. Englehartsays the store plans to expand the bakery,replace the produce bins, and enlarge the bulkfoods section.

The institution has also seen modest increases in both inpatient andoutpatient surgeries in the same period of time. An update was provided on the facility revitalizationproject that has impacted most of the inpatient units and some key common areas over the past fewyears. The rest of the units will be completed in the next few months. A report was also given on theDirect Hospitalist service, a program that will focus inpatient physician services and bring greatercontinuity of care for patients.An update was given on the progress of Loma Linda University Health System (LLUHS), a newcorporation that, once established, will more closely integrate the physicians with the hospitalsystem. In tandem, progress is also being made on bringing together the physician practices into onecorporation. This closer relationship is intended to enhance quality and accessibility and decreasecosts, all with a stronger focus on mission. Draft Bylaws for the new corporations will be presentedin August, with the scope of responsibilities and reserved powers outlined for Loma Linda University Adventist Health Sciences Center, Loma Linda University Medical Center, LLUHS, andthe new physician corporation.Approval was given to transition the current clinical and financial health care information infrastructure to software from Epic Systems Corporation. The rationale for the change is multi-factorial; thegoal is to better support LLU Health System clinicians and patients. The implementation willproceed over the next 18-24 months and will deploy an integrated platform supporting a comprehensive electronic medical record, computerized physician order entry, patient portals, and newscheduling, registration, and billing tools.The university continues to be strong financially, despite the U.S. economic climate. Combined netassets of the university have increased to the highest point since 2008. Standard & Poor’s (one of theBig Three credit agencies) has completed its review of the University’s rating on its bond obligationsand has affirmed an “A” rating with stable outlook.A new program was unveiled at the University to strengthen science education in Adventistsecondary schools. The Excellence in Science Experiential Education (EXSEED) program is scheduled for July 25-29 for academy science teachers, principals, and students.University administration announced that 1,347 degrees would be conferred this year, the secondhighest number of graduates in the past five years. On May 29, the School of Medicine graduated its10,000th graduate. In its 101-year history, the School of Medicine has graduated more studentsthan any other medical school in the West.A new academic program was announced—the doctor of audiology (AuD). The 4-year program isslated to begin in fall 2013 in the School of Allied Health Professions, making it only the secondprogram in the state.The Global Health Institute received approval to establish a field station in Malawi. This will allowfor faculty, resident, and student rotations, in addition to research, education, and other projects. It ishoped that model strategies for improving health care can be developed that can be replicated atother institutions.Junior and senior respiratory care students volunteered with the Cystic FibrosisFoundation’s Great Strides fundraising walk in Redlands on May 14. Helping outat the event in Sylvan Park were (from left) Lisa Todd, Jarred Tomita, Julie West,Jeffrey Wass, Joseph Diaz, Cecille Quidilla, Joshua Napod, and Edwin Ledezma.They are all working toward earning a bachelor’s degree in respiratory care fromthe School of Allied Health Professions.INNERWEAVE:The Wholeness StoryBy Wil Alexander, PhDProfessor of family medicine, School of MedicineThe brother of one of my closest friends at LLU is approaching retirement age. By careful andfrugal use of his money, he recently paid off the mortgage on his home, and paid off the rest ofwhat he owed on his truck, which is his business, for he is a self-employed trucker. Imaginewhat it was like when his home and his truck disappeared in a violent tornado that leveled allaround him.He sought help from his insurance company and was informed that the tornado was an “actof God,” and not covered! He and his have their lives and little else left to face an uncertainfuture.What picture of God would be the most helpful to this man and his family just now? There isa quote in the book Christ’s Object Lessons by Ellen White that I turn to in thinking of mypicture of God, which I share when I can:“Tell the sufferer of an almighty hand which will hold him up, of an infinite humanity inChrist that pities him. It is not enough for him to believe in law and force, things that haveno pity, and never hear the cry for help. He needs to clasp a hand that is warm, to trust in aheart full of tenderness. Keep his mind stayed upon the thought of a divine presence everbeside him, ever looking on him with pitying love. Bid him think of a Father’s heart that evergrieves over loss and brokenness, of a hand stretched out still, of a Father’s voice saying ‘takehold of my strength, and you will have peace.’” Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 388.In the face of great loss this may seem small comfort, yet the words are real and for sure. Wedo not grieve alone.

TODAY4Friday, June 24, 2011EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCEAssociation of American Medical Colleges report gives Loma Linda UniversitySchool of Medicine high marks among national medical schoolsBy James Ponder2011 report from the Association ofAmerican Medical Colleges paints anextremely favorable picture of Loma LindaUniversity School of Medicine (LLUSM) interms of educational quality, performance,and cost.ATitled “Medical School Missions ManagementTool,” the report measures each of the nation’s125 operational medical schools against six keyindicators: Quality of medical education as evaluated byrecent graduates Selection of medical specialty based onpriority health needs of the nation Diversity in the physician workforce Advancement of medical discovery Preparing physicians to fulfill the needs of thecommunity Graduating a medical school class withmanageable debt“I think it is very significant,” notes H. RogerHadley, MD, dean of the school, “that LLUSMscored among the top 15 percent of medicalschools in several areas. Needless to say, this is atestimony to the expertise and dedication of ourfaculty and students as well as a reflection of ourglobal mission.”In the first category, LLUSM scored in the 90thpercentile of American medical schools inproviding quality educational experiences ininternal medicine clinical clerkships.“This is a measurement of how our third-yearstudents feel about the quality of the trainingthey receive during this important three-monthclinical rotation,” Dr. Hadley observes. “Weespecially want to congratulate Dr. RaymondWong, of the department of internal medicine.We couldn’t be happier with the results!”Dr. Hadley points out that LLUSM scored inthe top 15 percent in four other areas includedin the first category: the communication of basicscience course objectives to students; the degreeto which basic science content offered relevantpreparation for clerkships; how students feelabout the importance of the clinical educationthey received during their fourth year of medicalschool; and the quality of educational experiences offered in other clinical clerkships.Marino and Daisy De Leon of the Center forHealth Disparities and Molecular Medicine—we have been reaching out to encourage giftedInland Empire high school students to considercareers in medicine and science. These highmarks from the Association of AmericanMedical Colleges indicate that others arestarting to take notice of what we’ve been doingin this area throughout the last decade.”“This is so, so important!” he beams. “Itmeans that our programs in these key areasscore higher than the vast majority of American medical schools. The faculty and staffhave put a lot of concentrated effort intomaking these programs the best that they canbe. This affirmation demonstrates that we’reachieving our goals!”In the fifth category, LLUSM scored in the 95thpercentile in the education of student physiciansin women’s health issues and in culturally appropriate care for diverse populations.TAs research by doctoral student Paula Cavalcanti reveals, physical therapists need to understand how other factors affect recovery,particularly in stroke patients.Ms. Calvacanti, who is working toward a doctorof science in physical therapy, School of AlliedHealth Professions, conducted a study ofchronic stroke patients correlating changes insleep-wake patterns to their quality of life. Alsocollaborating on the study were Lee Berk,DrPH, associate professor of physical therapy,and principal investigators Dr. John Araujo andDr. Tania F. Campos from Brazil’s FederalUniversity of Rio Grande do Norte, where Ms.Cavalcanti earned a master’s of science in physical therapy.“The sixth category is the cost of attendingmedical school,” he explains. “We are happy toreport that LLUSM came in at the 65thpercentile for in-state graduates and way downat the 15th percentile for out-of-state graduates.What that means is that while students atLLUSM are receiving an education that ranksamong the best in the nation, they’re paying lessfor it than their counterparts at many otherschools, including several with quality indicatorsfar below ours.”“Family medicine is one of two key areas identified as national priority health needs,” Dr.Hadley explains. “To think that we’re in the topfive percent of all American medical colleges isalmost mind-boggling! But we also scored in the85th percentile for placing graduates in primarycare medicine, which is the other identifiednational priority health need. I am pleased thatmany of our students are opting for the primarycare specialties.”In the third category, LLUSM placed in the85th percentile of American medical schools forgraduates who are Hispanic or Latino, and atthe same level for faculty members who areHispanic or Latino, American Indian or AlaskaNative, or Black or African-American.“We are very proud of our efforts to activelyrecruit both students and faculty from minorityand underserved segments of the population,”Dr. Hadley says. “Thanks to the efforts ofseveral members of our staff—chiefly Drs.Student research reveals poor-qualitysleep may interfere with stroke recoveryhe job of a physical therapist entails morethan just understanding the mechanics ofthe musculoskeletal system.In the sixth category, Dr. Hadley is very happyto report that LLUSM did not finish anywherenear the highest percentile.In the second category, LLUSM came in at the95th percentile of American medical schools forthe percent of graduates choosing family medicine as their specialty.STUDENT-LED RESEARCHBy Heather Reifsnyder“This is great,” Dr. Hadley beams. “Hereagain, Loma Linda’s global mission and faithbased imperative to train doctors to care forhuman need regardless of cultural contextcomes to the fore.”Sleep problems can ultimately affect patients’efforts to regain full physical and mentalfunctioning.“We wanted to wake up the profession and saythat we need to look at sleep, too,” says Ms.Cavalcanti. “We, as physical therapists, can dosomething about it. Without proper sleep, thebrain cannot form the motor memory necessaryfor recovery.”Brain injuries, such as those caused by astroke, can impact sleep by interfering withcircadian rhythm and the homeostatic regulation of sleep. The circadian system is like a 24hour clock, telling the body things such aswhen it’s time to eat, time to wake up, or timego to sleep. Homeostatic regulation is affectedby factors such as a child crying in the middleof the night, or whether a person has slept toomuch or too little.The two systems work together to control sleep.Although they’re required to pay considerably less than many of their peers atother institutions, Loma Linda University School of Medicine students receive aneducation that ranks well above average, according to a report issued by theAmerical Association of Medical Colleges. “I think it is very significant,” notes H.Roger Hadley, MD, dean of the school, “that LLUSM scored among the top 15percent of medical schools in several areas. Needless to say, this is a testimonyto the expertise and dedication of our faculty and students as well as a reflectionof our global mission.”Ms. Cavalcanti’s study is the first to analyzehow impairment of these two due to strokeaffects the patient. She compared 22 chronicstroke patients (defined as having had theirstroke injuries for more than six months) with24 healthy subjects.“The results suggest impairment of the sleepwake cycle in stroke patients is caused mainly bytheir decreased level of activity due to strokeinjury,” Ms. Cavalcanti says. “We suggest it alsodecreases quality of life.”To measure quality of life, the researchersused standardized questionnaires focused oneight indicators: physical functioning, physicallimitations, pain, general overall health,vitality, social life, emotional well-being, andmental health.In each category, the stroke patients scoredsignificantly lower than the healthy controlsubjects—as much as 81 percent lower insome cases.Ms. Cavalcanti presented these findings at theAmerican Heart Association’s 2011 International Stroke Conference, held in February inLos Angeles.According to a student-led researchstudy, sleep problems can affect apatient’s ability to regain full physicaland mental functioning. The study isthe first of its kind.
