In Episode 16, we continue our series of conversations with Gold Student Summer Fellows who each embarked on a summer research or service project to magnify humanism in healthcare and help address health inequities. These are fascinating projects created by medical students to make a difference and grow their skills as future compassionate, relationship-centered physicians.
In this next conversation in our Gold Student Summer Fellows series, Gold Assistant Director of Program Initiatives Michelle Sloane interviews Mollie Marr, PhD, who is a 2022 Gold Student Summer Fellow and a medical student in the Medical Scientist Training Program at the Oregon Health & Sciences University School of Medicine. Through her service project, titled “Creating a care pathway for children and adolescents presenting with self-harm or suicidality,” Mollie created and piloted a vast array of resources for youth in acute care settings. In collaboration with a team from social work, nursing, and child and adolescent psychiatry, along with input from patients themselves, Mollie developed psychoeducational materials, individualized trauma-informed plans, therapeutic interventions including motor breaks, and staff training materials, each geared to support adolescents, their families, and an interprofessional team of caregivers.
