Doctors Give Medical Care in Isolated Haitian Villages
Wayne Smith, MD, Anesthesiology Resident, hiked for more than an hour to the remote mountain village of Medor, Haiti, to provide medical care following the cholera outbreak in Haiti. Dr. Smith was on a mission trip with Remote Area Medical (RAM), a non-profit, volunteer, airborne relief corps that serves throughout the world providing free health, dental and eye care and more.
Supplies for the medical clinic included fluids, IVs, and medications such as pain relievers. The medical team was prepared to treat cholera but only treated two confirmed cases of the intestinal infection.
However, there were hundreds of people in Medor seeking medical care. One case that made an impact on Dr. Smith involved a boy who had burned his hand. He had been keeping his hand wrapped in a towel for the past year after it was burned during the earthquake.
"Saint Luke, his case was really the most impacting both here and at home," Dr. Smith said. "I scraped the scab and it looked like healthy tissue underneath. Bone infection was not apparent, but we didn't have the means to check for infection. We wondered what else to do.
"We are continuing to try to get Saint Luke to the U.S. We are having passport and visa issues. Neither he nor his mother has a birth certificate. We think we have the doctor and hospital side of things worked out. We have been raising money, and we hope to save his hand."
Ann Curry with Dateline on NBC followed the mission trip to Medor, featuring the medical clinic in "Rescue in the Mountains."
At approximately the same time Dr. Wayne Smith was serving in Medor, Lou Smith, MD, Associate Professor, Surgery, was also doing mission work in a remote area of Haiti. Originally destined for Boucan Carre on a Partners in Health mission trip, Dr. Lou Smith ended up hiking four hours over mountainous terrain to provide medical care with a small team in Bouly.
"Our clinic in Bouly was held in a church. It was actually a roof held up by poles with a couple of chairs," Dr. Lou Smith said. "People sat on logs waiting in line to be seen. We saw two to three hundred people. We would give interviews, check vitals, give out the medications that we had. It's neat what they are doing in Bouly, but there's not a lot they can do and the Partners in Health hospital is four hours away."
One case that stood out for Dr. Lou Smith involved a man who was carried to Bouly by a group of 16 people on a homemade stretcher. The man had severe abdominal pain, his blood pressure was low, and he was dehydrated. Dr. Lou Smith said they gave him some hydration solution and told him he needed to go to Boucan Carre for help.
"We left the following day and saw him in Boucan Carre. It turns out he had cirrhosis. It was amazing to me that his family and friends walked about 50 miles carrying him," she said.
Dr. Lou Smith regularly participates in missions in third-world areas and blogs about her experiences.

He joined the UT Graduate School of Medicine April 1 and is also an Associate Professor of Radiology.
Dr. Bradley said, "My role here encompasses two parts. One is the clinical aspect in which I will read images for nuclear medicine and radiology. Then there is the research portion in which I will oversee human clinical trials, working with physicians to apply what is learned through preclinical trials. Getting to work in both the clinical and research domains is the perfect fit for me. We have to answer questions we can't answer today."
The Molecular Imaging and Translational Research Program combines efforts with the Preclinical and Diagnostic Molecular Imaging Laboratory, directed by Jonathan Wall, PhD, and the Biomedical Imaging Center, directed by George Kabalka, PhD. The Program is comprised of three components: imaging methodologies, radiopharmaceutical development, and applications for both humans and animals. The Translational Research Program component is directed by Amy LeBlanc, DVM.

Eric Heidel Receives Yates Dissertation Fellowship
Eric Heidel, MS NCC, Statistical and Research Design Consultant, Office of Medical Education, Research and Development, was recently awarded one of three Yates Dissertation Fellowship awards, a $15,000 non-service award available to UT Knoxville PhD candidates. Heidel said he thinks his work at the Graduate School of Medicine designing studies and performing statistical analyses set him apart as a recipient for the prestigious award.
Heidel said the award money will fund his dissertation project in which he is building and testing an instrument designed to measure for levels of isomorphism in clinical supervisory dyads, a novel area of study. For the scope of his dissertation, isomorphism is the systematic similarities between counseling and supervision in regards to philosophy, theory, behaviors, processes, content and structure. His primary research goal is to operationalize the construct of isomorphism using valid and reliable psychometric and empirical reasoning. The award money will give Heidel the opportunity to visit numerous CACREP (Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs) accredited counseling programs in the U.S. to administer the survey he designed to faculty and PhD students.

Grateful Patients Send Thanks for Exceptional Care
Samer Hodroge, MD, Internal Medicine Resident, received a letter of thanks from a patient not only for his medical care to her and the care she received on 5 East, but also for the encouragement he gave to her. In her letter, the patient says, "Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so thankful you were the doctor assigned to my case. Not only were you an asset to my recovery, but you went above and beyond to make sure I was doing well. You really lifted my spirits one evening when, I guess on your personal time, you stopped in to check on me. It was the perfect time, I was very sad I was still in the hospital. You lifted my sadness, encouraged me, and it was really sweet of you to offer a book that you would bring back that same evening.
"I feel so fortunate to have met you … Other patients will be lucky to have you as their doctor!"
Eddie Moore, MD, Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education, also received a note of gratitude for the care and service Missy Maples, Student Affairs Coordinator, provided to a patient and his mother. The mother writes that she was taking her son outside in a wheel chair on a beautiful morning after he had been in the hospital for several weeks. The mother said she was uncomfortable taking him outside alone, and when Maples noticed them, she offered her assistance. The mother wrote, "I was so relieved to have this support and concern … someone who did not know us, an angel in our path."
The mother continues saying, "Missy Maples must be valued as an extraordinary lady to have in your department. … Just know that I so appreciate her concern and thoughtfulness."
Office Changes Name, Expands Vision; Laura Maples Named Director
The office of Communications and Outreach has changed its name to Continuing Education and Professional Development (CEPD), and Laura H. Maples, MS, has been named director.
The change in name is a result of the office of CEPD branching beyond its current accreditation with the ACCME to include ANCC and ACPE accreditation. This joint accreditation will enable CEPD to become an integral component of the joint strategic plan of the UT Graduate School of Medicine and University Health System, Inc. Continuing education, as a whole, is the foundation of professional development for healthcare providers to ensure quality healthcare and patient safety.
Maples joined the Graduate School of Medicine in 2005 as continuing education coordinator. She was promoted to the position of director in early 2011, a position formerly held by Lea Anne Law. Law moved to the UT College of Business Administration in late 2010.
Maples earned a bachelor of science degree from the University of Tennessee in 1987 and a master of communications degree from UT in 2000.
"This is a pivotal time for our office, as we transition from single to joint accreditation to provide professional development training for the physicians, nurses, pharmacists and allied healthcare providers of the region," Maples said. "We know increased and diverse professional educational opportunities can lead to improved quality of healthcare and patient safety, and we will work to ensure our office anticipates and responds to these educational needs."
Questions regarding Continuing Education and Professional Development can be addressed to Maples at 305-9190.
