NATIONAL HEALTH CARE TEAM CHALLENGE
On Friday March 11 our FHS Queen's Team of Jenn Bossio (Clinical Psychology), Nicole Leakey (OT) , Laura Lu (Nursing) , Lucinda Ling (PT) and Karim Mohamed (Medicine) participated in the National Health Care Team Challenge held at the University of Toronto. Teams representing UBC, McMaster, UWO, the Michnener Institute, U of T and Ottawa U as well as Queen's competed on presenting their collaborative approach to a patient's complex health situation. I am thrilled to report that our Queen's Team won! We were surprised and delighted to be chosen from an obviously well prepared and enthusiastic group of health care students. Thank you all for your support and best wishes. Jane Johnston, School of Nursing.

I am currently a senior (4th year) psychology concentrator at Harvard University. I am planning on moving to Kingston, Ontario next year to live with my girlfriend who will be attending graduate school at your university. I've studied developmental psychopathology under Dr.John Weisz and more recently Anxiety Disorders under Dr. Richard McNally. Assuming I will be able to obtain a work visa, my goal is to work in a variety of psychology environments over the next two years to better determine what field of psychology suits me. I am extremely interested in first hand experience -- whether that be working in a Psychiatric Ward, at a school as a guidance counselor or at a university as a research intern/assistant.
