Martin J. Glassman ’79, assistant professor in the department of community and preventive medicine at New York Medical College in Valhalla, N.Y., will discuss “The Medical School Curriculum Database” noon Tuesday in Gagnon Lecture Hall, Hugel Science Center room 100.

The talk will be given for the monthly meeting of the health professions program. Pizza will be served; reservations for lunch should be made to June Thompson at thomsoj.

All students are welcome; health professions students considering medical school and who have an interest in dentistry are encouraged to attend.

Glassman will give an Internet demonstration of the medical school curriculum database web site showing the courses, schedule, course materials, and course content typical of medical school. He also will discuss the PDA pilot program used by third-year medical students at his college to record their patient encounters in some clerkships as well as the future medical school consortium that New York Medical College, Tufts, and other medical schools are developing. In addition, he will address student questions regarding medical and dental school and will distribute materials from the New York Medical College admissions office.

In addition to his faculty role at New York Medical College, Glassman is coordinator of instructional curricular technology, directing academic computing. He is course director for a fourth-year medical student elective in Computers in Health Sciences and spends a large portion of his time directing the on-line curriculum database (course web pages) that New York Medical College has adopted and customized based on a Tufts University Medical School model. He also is involved with the PDA pilot program.

An A.B. engineering graduate, Glassman earned a D.M.D. from University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1983. He practiced general dentistry in the Philadelphia area for several years before moving back to New York to pursue an academic career.
