Cesar O. Freytes, MD, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio; Gale G. Hannigan, PhD, Texas A&M University, Margaret Vugrin, MSLS, Texas Tech University; and members of the CATCHUM Educational Task Force.
The CATCHUM Project is a consortium of the eight Texas Medical Schools dedicated to educating undergraduate medical students about cancer prevention and screening. The poster highlights the cancer screening and prevention educational products developed by the consortium and available through its website. These include: presentations that can be downloaded, online tests, objective structured clinical exam (OSCEs) and problem-based learning (PBL) case studies, competency objectives for preceptors, and a Curriculum on Pain Management for undergraduate medical students. All of these resources are available via the CATCHUM Project's web page at www.catchum.utmb.edu
The text of the poster will be in both Spanish and English.
Based at the University of Texas Medical Branch Educational Cancer Center, the CATCHUM Project is funded by the National Cancer Institute (Grant # 1 R25 CA65618)
