10/17/2012 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss.  -- The Keesler Hospital isnow a teaching site for medical students from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, located in Bethesda, Md.

The 81st Medical Group has hosted some fourth-year students for rotations and Graduate Medical Education Program interviews in the past.

Under the new arrangement, third-year medical students will rotate through the hospital every six weeks on a permanent basis. The first group -- three Army and two Navy students -- arrived Sept. 17. Army 2nd Lts. Timothy Russell, Jason Zack and Darren Hyams and Navy Ensigns Michael Berge and Robert Blackmon are doing rotations in internal medicine outpatient and inpatient areas.

The next group arrives Oct. 29.

Maj. (Dr.) Matthew Hann, 81st Medical Operations Squadron and site director for the USUHS program, said, "We are very excited about this. It will surely benefit Keesler over the next few years. We are keeping them very busy. Three students are working on the inpatient services with our resident teams and two students are rotating around the ambulatory clinics. We are also getting them involved with the simulation lab, particularly with the Harvey (cardiopulmonary) simulator."
