Students asked many questions at the Town Hall held Monday, Oct. 22 – so many that there wasn’t time to answer all of them. So, NEOMED leaders will answer the remaining questions from that event here and in future issues of The Pulse.
Q. As a COGS student, I feel that there are not as many opportunities for us to interact with our dean as compared to medicine or pharmacy. Could we get more opportunities?
A. My office door is always open and I would be pleased to meet with students individually or collectively for discussions. Appointments can be scheduled through my assistant, Nona Hose. The College of Graduate Studies has also organized and scheduled COGS Forums for COGS students to attend – similar to College of Medicine and College of Pharmacy class and/or College gatherings – but unfortunately, they have been cancelled due to low attendance. It is my intent to be present for those Forums to listen and answer/address any concerns that may be brought forward.
--Steven P. Schmidt, Ph.D., dean of the College of Graduate Studies; professor, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences; vice president for Research.
