Aubri Gillespie, MS4

Dear University of Connecticut School of Medicine Students,
I am a 4th year medical student at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine doing research as part of a project required for graduation. The principal investigator of this study is Dr. Catherine Lewis (860-679-8395 ,

The title of the study is “Interactive Neuropsychiatric Educational Module to Better Understand Vascular Brain Injury”. In this study, an interactive case module is being created to help students better understand neuropsychiatric conditions caused by vascular brain injury. This module can be used by a multitude of students who are having difficulty grasping the concepts of brain dysfunction. This module is designed to not only help students understand neuropsychiatric dysfunction, but may also help them learn how to effectively communicate this material to their patients and the patients’ families. This module may also be helpful because it presents complex neurological problems in a visual context, making the concepts more understandable and less complex.

Unique Code:

Please create a unique code that includes the first 3 letters of your first pet's name plus the first 3 letters of your favorite colort to allow the pre-tutorial questionnaire to be linked to the post-tutorial questionnaire answers for statistical analysis. For example, if your pet's name is Garfield and your favorite color is blue, your login would be gar+blu=garblu. By creating this code, the tests will not be linked to you as an individual. Please do not type any identifiable information in the space below.
