The Rounds Initiative was created by Dr. Jasper to provide undergraduate students with exposure to clinical medicine early in their careers. During these presentations, students are presented with a simulated medical case, through which they are guided how to properly assess, diagnose, and manage a patient’s medical condition and “act like a physician”. These sessions provide students with opportunities to learn how the undergraduate classes they are enrolled in will apply to their clinical medicine practice as a future physician.
The Comprehensive Medical Mentoring Program Spring Curriculum provides students with guided learning and active mentorship through lectures, small group discussions, mock interviews, personal statement reviews, and volunteering. During this 2 month curriculum we utilize content that focuses on the introduction of a variety of healthcare topics and concepts as well as healthcare associated policies and guidelines.
The Comprehensive Medical Mentoring Program Clinical Research Internship (CRI) was created to provide undergraduate students with a comprehensive introduction into the breadth and application of clinical research. Our goal is to cultivate the next generation of research scholars and physicians to eliminate health disparities and increase health equity.
Comprehensive Medical Mentoring Program Week provides students with a crash course in pre-medical education. It features lectures and workshops created to prepare students as they begin and complete the medical school application process. Topics covered during the week include acquiring MCAT study skills, creating personal statements and curriculum vitaes, and conducting mock interviews. Representatives from local medical schools also provide presentations to students interested in applying to medical school. In addition, pre-medical students are also provided mentorship and networking opportunities throughout the week with both medical students and healthcare professionals during the workshops, social mixer, and community service project.
Comprehensive Medical Mentoring Program provides students with opportunities to tour various local college and medical school campuses, as well as clinical simulation labs in the Washington, DC and New Orleans, LA areas. Through these events, students are able to observe the various facilities, including classrooms, laboratories, study areas, libraries, and wellness centers at the academic institutions. They are also able to meet with current and former students and administrators who are able to provide them with information about how to apply to the respective schools.
The annual Dr. Jasper’s 5 Day Wear Pink Challenge for breast cancer awareness was created in 2012 to empower those that have been affected by breast cancer in any way.
