Congratulations to Dr. Sheila Jalalat, our former DIG President and 2014 SOM graduate for the recent publication of her dermatology research honors thesis. Her paper is entitled, “Utility of a Dermatology Interest Group Blog: The Impact of Medical Student Interest Groups and Web 2.0 Tools as Educational Resources.” It was published this month in the open access, peer-reviewed journal, Advances in Medical Education and Practice 2014,5:331-337.
The abstract and pdf for this article is available at: http://www.dovepress.com/utility-of-a-dermatology-interest-group-blog-the-impact-of-medical-stu-peer-reviewed-article-AMEP

This research may be of special interest to UTMB DIG members since the article is about our UTMB dermatology blog (digutmb.blogspot.com)!
Her co-author and faculty mentor on this research was Dr. Richard Wagner, the Program Director for the UTMB dermatology residency program and UTMB DIG faculty advisor. Dr. Jalalat will begin her dermatology residency at the University of South Florida College of Medicine in Tampa, Florida following her current PGY1 year in Chicago.
