Inception: Librarians’ Roles in the Establishment of a Medical Program

What happens when a traditionally business-oriented university expands to start a medical school? How do librarians switch gears from business plans to systematic reviews? What’s it like to work with an entirely new program? Bryant’s Allison Papini and Johnson and Wales’ Erika Gearing will be sharing their experiences from the first months of their respective programs. We will also be taking a tour of Bryant’s newly constructed PA facilities and will have an opportunity to speak with members of Bryant’s PA faculty.
