  1. 1. Daily Advising and the Internet: How to incorporate internet and advising software into our daily routine
  2. 2. Case Studies <ul><li>MEDICINE </li></ul><ul><li>MBA </li></ul>
  3. 3. MEDICINE A medical doctor, especialized in intensive care, comes by your office to inquiry about fellowship programs in the US. She needs to find out intensive care programs specialized in “neurointensivism.” She states that she is not interested in having any contact with patients: she only intends to conduct observation and research in american hospitals.
  4. 4. Medicine - Fellowship <ul><li>Section III - Critical Care p.420 </li></ul>- Lists hospitals and medical schools with residency programs in critical care medicine - My advice for the medical doctor was to use this publication as a reference to contact institutions in the specialization and ask for the possibility of a fellow
  5. 5. Medicine <ul><li>The other thing I could have done was to introduce the advisee to the new 2000 CDROM of the “Graduate Medical Education Directory” </li></ul><ul><li>We also had folders donated by former advisees on residency and fellowship programs in the US, which served as a model to show the difference on programs </li></ul><ul><li>Had it not been for internet aid, my session with the advisee would have ended here </li></ul><ul><li>However,.... </li></ul>
  6. 6. Freida: www.ama-assn.org/cgi-bin/freida/freida.cgi Click on “Projects and Opportunities” Click on “Resident and Fellow Section”
  7. 7. Fellowships There is a link to emergency medicine fellows Click on “Residency and Fellowship Vacancies”
  8. 8. I continued talking to the advisee and found out that she was also interested in emergency care. Also, she explained to me that critical care medicine has recently been divided into critical care general, critical care cardiology, and “neurointensivism.” I found out through a search engine that “neurointensivism” is neurointensive care
  9. 9. Search engine: www.metacrawler.com Search: “neurointensive”
  10. 10. <ul><li>Both the search engine and Freida on line complemented the information requested and our medical doctor was very pleased with the findings. Hurahhh! </li></ul>

Advisees can borrow both presentations to find out the path taken by these students to get accepted into an MBA program. </li></ul>
