Monthly Student Meetings

The student-organized MSTP monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of each month. Meetings will cover a range of topics, including science/research presentations by students and faculty guest speakers, career development discussions and panels, networking opportunities with other physician scientists, and social activities. These meetings will also provide students with updates on the Program and the Medical School, and an opportunity to provide feedback to the Director and MSTP Student Advisory Committee on program activities. The monthly program meetings are an essential element of the MSTP and attendance by all MSTP students is mandatory.
