Hi All,

Just wanted to pass on this info as I found it helpful. If you are looking for usmle exams prep course do check out the “survivors course”. 6 weeks robust review covering not only the high yield concepts but much more, test taking skills pointers, individual 1:1 tutoring all included in the package.

Hello everyone, thank you for coming to our meeting this evening. If you are interested in becoming a member, Ive attached a link for the email sign up. Thanks!
So, is there just NOT an AMSA this semester? There have been zero announcements since everyone left the island last April. It would be very sad to see one of, what was, the largest and most active students organizations on campus just go away. Hopefully SGU AMSA will one day get back to the esteemed position it used to hold! ❤️ I know the Association can still do a lot of good!
AMSA amazing job today! As HFAD, I couldn’t be more proud of all of you than I am right now! Because of all of your efforts, we saw 68 patients today! That’s 68 lives we made just a little bit better, 68 people who are going to bed a little healthier then they woke up this morning! Amazing work one and all, thank you!
Congratulations to all the outstanding new E-Board members and thank you so much to this semester's leadership for all they've done for us. This has been a great semester. Can't wait to see what we do next! #GOAMSA!
😎

For the past six weeks, Connor Berger, a third-year medical student at SGU and a former Marine, has been volunteering with the Medical Reserve Corps to care for homeless people who have contracted COVID-19.

“What we have been finding on the ground is that there are a very high number of homeless people who are positive for the virus. The majority are asymptomatic but are obviously high-risk carriers due to close-quarter contact at most shelters,” Mr. Berger said, who first volunteered with the organization in New York City and now is working with them in New Haven, CT.

For those who are sick, “we have come up with a solution by utilizing a high school gymnasium right near Yale New Haven Hospital. Turning this gym into an isolation unit provides an area that will not get in the way of normal functions of the hospital, but where we can monitor and mitigate any symptoms that could arise. This area also limits the disease spread to the general population,” he said.

Mr. Berger, who aspires to be a neurosurgeon, assists with giving medication, checking patients’ vitals, and helping to make sure patients are comfortable as they recover from the virus. Currently the quarantine area has about 25 patients.

Mr. Berger served in the Marine Corps as a machine gunner and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011, before heading to undergraduate college at the University of Miami. He said his experience in infantry field medical training while in the Marines and the medical knowledge he has so far gained during his first two years at SGU, inspired him during this unprecedented time.
“It is important to me to serve my community and my country during this crisis,” he said.

Mr. Berger is expected to graduate from SGU in 2022.
