American Osteopathic Association president visits Campbell Medicine AOA president encourages Campbell medical students to engage with their osteopathic medical family Campbell University’s Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine welcomed American Osteopathic Association (AOA) President, Ronald Burns, DO, FACOFP, and his wife, Janet, to Buies Creek on Oct. 11, for a campus visit with Interim Dean Powers, faculty, staff and students. One of the highlights of his visit was the opportunity for MS-I and MS-II students to learn more about the AOA and its support for the osteopathic physician and medical student community. “This is your professional family,” said Burns. “The American Osteopathic Association is here to assist and support you throughout your journey.” He encouraged students to eliminate self-doubt and self-imposed stress throughout medical school and, as they enter the profession, to always be present each step of the way. “[Medical school] goes really fast,” he said. “Enjoy where you are and the relationships you have because at the end of the day that’s what’s really important.” Burns also told students to always advocate for three things — the patient, the osteopathic family, and themselves — and to remember that they are never alone in the profession. “The thing that most stood out to me about Dr. Burns’ visit was his referral to a professional family,” said Jessica Simmons-Josilevich, MS-II, and vice president of the Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA), “and that’s what the AOA provides.” Simmons-Josilevich further shared that when choosing Campbell, and now having been here for two years, her Campbell Family has been very important. “It’s really nice and comforting to know that once I leave Campbell, I will still have a family looking out for me and all DOs!” - SHELLEY HOBBS

DAREN FOMIN, DO CPT, MC, USA Resident Dermatologist (PGY-3) WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MILITARY MEDICINE? My father was a career Army physician, so I grew up in a military family. With the exception of undergrad, the military lifestyle is all I knew. I enjoyed the sense of duty, the moving around the world, and the emphasis on supporting "the mission." My family is also extremely patriotic, as my father was born under communist Soviet rule and escaped to the freedom of the United States as a teenager. From my earliest days, I knew I wanted to be a soldier and in undergrad, I went on a few mission trips through my church which put a passion for medicine into me. Combining the two, military and medicine was the perfect option. Every vocation in all practice settings has its set-backs. My Christian faith and the Army have taught me to be content in all situations, change what you can, and, as we say in the Army, "adapt and overcome." (But, it was "difficult" to leave living in Hawai'i to move to Washington, DC to finish PGY2-4). WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST EXCITING/REWARDING ASPECT OF RESIDENCY? Training at two of the most renowned hospitals in the world. My internship was at Tripler Army Medical Center which is a Department of Defense catchment center for 52% of the world. You get to see advanced diseases and trauma of all sorts. Interestingly, I had the privilege of resuscitating a dying marine who suffered from a gunshot wound to the pelvis on my ICU rotation intern year. I was a part of a team to bring him out of the throes of

JONATHAN STORMER, DO CPT, MC, USA WRNMMC PM&R (PGY-3)

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MILITARY MEDICINE & WHEN/HOW DID YOU MAKE THAT CHOICE? I always wanted to serve in the military and I felt like this was my last chance. Having a family also made the HPSP scholarship even more appealing not only financially, but also for the health care benefits, especially having a child with cystic fibrosis. I mentally committed to pursuing military medicine early in the process so I called the local health care recruiter the day after I received the acceptance letter. WHAT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST CHALLENGE OF YOUR RESIDENCY EXPERIENCE SO FAR? By far the most challenging and stressful experience was matching into my residency program. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is consistently one of the most competitive residencies in military medicine due to the small size and number of applications. It is one of the smallest residencies in the military and only Walter Reed National Military Medical Center offers it. I did not match initially, but I was blessed to complete my intern year in Hawaii and was accepted after reapplying. WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST REWARDING ASPECT/EXPERIENCE OF YOUR RESIDENCY? Although living in Hawaii for a year with my family was an unbelievable experience for all of us, the people I work with and the patients I take care of are definitely the most reward aspect of my residency training. We take care of a lot of the special operations forces because they are frequently injured due to the inherent danger of their jobs. Hearing their stories and watching them gain function and independence after horrific injuries makes it easy to go to work. Our top notch staff make our program one of the best in the country and the caliber of my co-residents is humbling.

can get it and we don't have to fight with insurance companies. Our wounded warriors frequently receive multiple prosthetic limbs for various activities like running, biking, and golfing. The National Institute of Health is right across the street and my son's CF doctor was able to access a cutting edge triple combination CFTR modulator that treats the underlying cause of his mutation that will not be available to the general public in his age group for several more years. His medications are very costly worth well over $30k/mo and the pharmacy gives us a 90 day supply for free with no issues. This access to care is unfortunately not ubiquitously available in the civilian sector. WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR FOLKS CONSIDERING MILITARY MEDICINE? Don't just do it for a free ride through medical school. Do it because you want to lead in your field of medicine as a military officer, you want to take care of our unique patient population, and you are willing to accept everything that entails including grooming standards, fitness, deployments, and personal sacrifice. WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU IN YOUR CAREER? I have a little less than 2 more years of residency and then I begin a minimum

payback of 4 years. It is difficult to see beyond that and military medicine is currently in flux, but I am very happy where I am for now and I'm looking forward to the journey ahead. When I finish my residency I could stay where I am, or PCS to Washington, Texas, or even back to Hawaii. ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE? There are downsides to military medicine. You have to balance medical education with military requirements. Our software and hardware are often subpar. Attending pay can be significantly less than civilian pay depending on the specialty. Some struggle with height, weight, or fitness standards. You can't travel more than 250 miles without leave approval from your company commander. There is a lot of extra paperwork, and you have to move frequently. However, if you're up for the adventure and you focus on the positives, it can be an extremely rewarding and exciting experience.

MICHAEL SUMNER, DO LT, Navy, USA Flight Surgeon Carrier Air Wing Eight WHY DID YOU CHOOSE MILITARY MEDICINE AND WHEN/HOW DID YOU MAKE THAT CHOICE? Growing up on military bases my whole life (moved every ~4 years from Saudi, Hawaii, South Korea, Japan, Germany, New Jersey) and my experience with Navy JROTC in high school, I knew I wanted to serve at least a few years in the Navy. Also, my grandfather was an Air Force pilot in WWII, Vietnam, and the Korean War, so military service has always been an interest of mine. WHAT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST CHALLENGE OF YOUR RESIDENCY EXPERIENCE SO FAR? The greatest challenge for me is probably similar to most residents whether civilian or military, and that's living in the hospital 6 days a week for 12+ hour shifts. Thankfully, I'm now a Flight Surgeon (out of residency) and practicing medicine on my own with just an internship under my belt, which is the new great challenge.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST REWARDING ASPECT/EXPERIENCE OF YOUR RESIDENCY? The most rewarding aspect of my residency was being able to treat our men and women in uniform and their family, especially those wounded in combat. Their sacrifice and service cannot be thanked enough. IS THERE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE TO MILITARY MEDICINE VS TRADITIONAL? The biggest difference between military medicine and civilian medicine, in my opinion, is the healthcare system itself. It's great not having to deal with insurance companies, being able to provide any medication/care needed without jumping through pharmaceutical/insurance hoops. However, we are still using an electronic health record from the 1990s while my civilian counterparts are using state of the art EMRs which is frustrating. The wheels of government turn slowly, but pros and cons to everything. We plan to have a semi-new EMR up and running throughout our military facilities by 2023. WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR FOLKS CONSIDERING MILITARY MEDICINE? If you are considering military medicine, make sure you know exactly what you're getting into - i.e. possibility of being deployed, not getting the orders/ billet you want, not being able to complete residency straight through, some specialties (especially surgical specialties) have a low patient population and acuity than their counterparts, and more. However, also know the great opportunities (like myself being able to fly in F-18s experiencing a force 7x that of gravity, possibly being stationed in Greece/Spain/Italy/Hawaii, better pay than civilian residents, etc...). You need to make sure you understand and be ready for any and all possible outcomes that come with being in the military, and be able to adapt to whatever situation may occur whether good or bad. WHAT IS NEXT FOR YOU IN YOUR CAREER? My Navy commitment ends in June 2022, but I plan to extend as a Flight Surgeon for another two years until 2024 (because I'm having an absolute blast). Then I'll go back to Walter Reed to finish my last two years of Internal Medicine residency and maybe

Campbell Med Student Awarded 2019 AOA LEAD Scholarship

T

ony Li, MS-III, was awarded the 2019 Karen J. Nichols, DO, LEAD Scholarship from the American Osteopathic Foundation. This scholarship is presented to an osteopathic medical student whose Leadership, Excellence, Achievement, and Dedication are proven in the classroom and community. “This scholarship affirms that all the hard work I have put into medical school so far is paying off,” said Li. “I have really come out of my shell [and grown] as a leader by involving myself in the school and community, and I will continue my hard work [throughout] clinical rotations.” Over the course of his first two years of medical school, Li has served as president of the Family Medicine Club, a student leader for the PaLMS Seminar, an OMM TA, and is a frequent volunteer at the Campbell University Community Care Clinic. He also served as the Student Representative for the NCS-ACOFP Board of Governors from 2018-2019. This award recognizes, honors, and encourages osteopathic medical students who show promise and exhibit the foundational leadership skills that will serve them and their communities now and in the future. “I am very grateful to CUSOM for believing in me,” shared Li. “What I love about the school is that every faculty member is willing to help students. Many of my professors have been mentors to me and they certainly contributed to me earning this scholarship.” About the Karen J. Nichols, DO LEAD Scholar Award

This award was established to honor Karen J. Nichols, DO, former president of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and its first female president, an accomplished educator and someone who has served in multiple leadership positions for the osteopathic profession, including six years as a board member for the American Osteopathic Foundation (AOF) — Dr. Nichols leads by example and for this reason, it’s only fitting that this award was established and named after her. - SHELLEY HOBBS

Catching Up On Our Clubs Pediatric Medicine Club ABOUT THE PEDS CLUB? The Pediatric Medicine Club is a specialty club at CUSOM that focuses on informing and giving opportunities for medical students to explore the field of pediatrics. They host outside speakers to share their insight, knowledge, and experiences about their practice and pediatric residencies. Additionally, they organize events throughout the year that allow students to engage with kids in the community, such as their annual Field Day and Exceptional Camels Day.

HOW DOES THE PEDS CLUB SUPPORT THE STUDENT BODY? The Peds Club is a resource for students to explore any interest in Pediatric Medicine and make connections with physicians, faculty, staff, and other students involved in pediatrics. An example of this is the annual Peds Thanksgiving Dinner hosted at Dr. Mann's home. Dr. Mann, the Peds Club advisor, is a Med-Peds physician.

HOW IS CAMPBELL’S PEDS CLUB INVOLVED AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL? All club members join the national ACOP, American College of Osteopathic Pediatricians, and are encouraged to go to the annual conferences. They also receive weekly emails from the AAP, American Academy of Pediatrics, concerning national updates within the field.

WHAT ARE SOME PEDS CLUB EVENTS WE CAN LOOK FORWARD TO? Fall of 2019 was busy with their annual Field Day, Exceptional Camels Day, a speaking event with a Pediatric Neurologist from Duke, and Peds Thanksgiving Dinner. Field Day is an event for the local community consisting of bouncy houses, outdoor activities, healthy snacks, and health education information for kids and families in Harnett County. Exceptional Camels Day was founded this year for children with special needs and their families. Club members played games with the kids and had a discussion with the parents about both their positive and negative experiences with healthcare professionals caring for their children. With the start of the new year, the Peds Club is looking forward to more speaking events with doctors from a variety of pediatric sub-specialties and volunteer opportunities including one with the local Ronald McDonald house.

Common cold vs. influenza - what you need to know

MICHAEL RUDISILL, M.DIV, M.ED.

Admissions Counselor and Recruiter ZACHARY HUBENTHAL

THE COLD AND FLU SEASON IS UPON US. SO WHAT DOES A COLD AND THE FLU HAVE IN COMMON AND HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT? The common cold and an influenza infection are both caused by viruses. They both cause fever, cough, head congestion, sore throat and body aches.

Clinical Simulation Technician

PROMOTIONS

BONNIE BRENSEKE, DVM, PHD, DACVP

Associate Professor of Pathology KHALIL ELDEEB, MD, MSC, PHD

Associate Professor of Pharmacology TERENCE MITCHELL, PHD,

ONE OF THE MAIN DIFFERENCES IS IN THE SEVERITY OF THOSE SYMPTOMS. Fever is much higher with the flu, often 102 or above, and body aches are much worse. Headache is also common with the flu.

Associate Professor of Anatomy

UPCOMING EVENTS NOVEMBER 2, 2019 Class of 2023 White Coat Ceremony

TREATMENT AND PREVENTION Treatment for the common cold is focused on minimizing symptoms.

NOVEMBER 25, 2019

Influenza can be treated with an antiviral agent, but should be started within 48 hours of onset of symptoms.

Christmas Palooza

Neither a cold or the flu should be treated with antibiotics.

CUSOM Faculty/Staff/Student Potluck

NOVEMBER 26, 2019

While the flu may just seem like a bad cold, it is much more than that. Flu poses a special risk to the very young and the very old, however, everyone should get a flu shot.

NOVEMBER

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" applies to the flu as much as any other condition. No matter how far we are into the flu season, it is not too late to get a flu shot, so if you have not had one, do so as soon as possible.
