Outcomes Database (SOMOD)
For faculty and administrators with responsibility to monitor medical student performance outcomes. Provides individual and aggregate data collected from a variety of different databases and resources. Access can be requested through Teddy Wiphatphumiprates (tepparit.wiphatphumiprates@Vanderbilt.Edu) in Medical Education Informatics.
Each year, course directors input their lecture schedules in the KM system. Course directors and course lecturers are also encouraged to upload lecture handouts and/or PowerPoint presentations used in their lectures. KnowledgeMap has become the central repository that our students use to locate course documents and to search for concepts or content within the entire curriculum.
OAK (Online Access to Knowledge / powered by Blackboard)
Vanderbilt University supports OAK, a course management system. Course directors wishing to use its features for their course, free of charge, should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 936-8524. Learn more about OAK.

MD Student Portal
The VMS Portal was created by medical students – for medical students. It is designed to be a central collection of online tools, links to offices and student life information that medical students find useful and need to access regularly. The Portal links to lecture schedules and course material in KnowledgeMap, contains a tool to buy and sell books and other items, a tool to conduct a survey of student peers, create online note cards, view information about classmates, view a photo gallery of school events, and find contact information for faculty, staff and students. Faculty and staff can enter the MD Student Portal here.
