What a great method of introducing students to the environmental elements of an acute treatment setting!

Several years ago, Chad Wentzel survived a stroke. Willing to “do anything to get better,” Wentzel agreed to participate in a research study to see if the Portable Neuromodulation Stimulator, or PoNS, can stimulate areas of the brain to help stroke survivors maintain physical balance.

The PoNs device, proportional in size to that of a stick of gum, is one of several studies underway at MUSC to aid stroke survivors. To learn how you or someone you know can enroll in this trial, visit the link below.

Thanks to the Meyer family, Dr. Gretchen Seif, and MUSC patients, employees, students, and friends, 2023 was a success! Because of your support, MUSC programs like the Camden Scott Meyer Pediatric Fund and CARES Therapy Clinic can continue to change lives and change what’s possible.

11/28/2023

Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. experiences a stroke, and every three minutes and 14 seconds, a life is lost as a result of the medical emergency. With a long-term vision of faster, more effective stroke treatment, a team of MUSC researchers led by Donna Roberts, M.D., and evaluation expert Jillian Harvey, Ph.D., partnered with Charleston County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to evaluate the potential of an MRI-equipped ambulance.

In a recent trial run, the project, funded by MUSC’s Blue Sky Award program, obtained promising results as diagnostic-quality imaging of a healthy volunteer was captured and successfully transmitted to the hospital for review, despite the images being obtained in a moving emergency vehicle.

Visit the link below to read more about their findings.

On Monday, our first-year DPT students participated in a "Turkey Hunt" as part of Dr. Gretchen Seif's Musculoskeletal I Lab. After performing some physical therapy skills correctly, they were given clues to search for turkeys throughout the College of Health Professions!

We're thankful for our passionate faculty who are always looking for creative ways to keep our students engaged - especially before a long holiday weekend.

Focus on Faculty: CAHME’s Role in Program Enhancement and Academic Career Development is CAHME’s newest white paper which highlights faculty who broadened their network, learned new skills, and helped their own programs get better. But what they gained most is participating in a community of caring through CAHME. 

The profiles include faculty from long-time CAHME accredited programs to those beginning their accreditation journey.

- Christopher Johnson, PhD,
- Steven Szydlowski, MBA, MHA, DHA,
- Lesley Clack, ScD, CPH,
- Dale Sanders, DO, DHA, MBA,
- Dae Hyun (Daniel) Kim, PhD,
- Jami Jones, PhD, MHA,
