Dean, MS4 Class President on TV this morning

You may have been surprised to see Dean Hedges and MS 4 Ken Ortiz "live from JABSOM" on Wake Up 2Day this morning. The shoot was only confirmed late yesterday, and the crew -- including Jai Cunningham -- appeared on the scene just minutes before going "live"... using a backpack-sized unit which transmits their video and audio via cellular telephone lines.

The Dean was asked about JABSOM moving UP in the US News & World Report rankings for "Best U.S. Medical Schools" (released yesterday) and he plugged both our external funding rankings and our MD students' outstanding (10 years in a row) USMLE Scores.
