First-year medical students who are curious about research during medical school are invited to attend an informational meeting hosted by the Research Learning Community (RLC) on Tuesday, Oct. 16, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in 101 White Hall (Gandhi Auditorium). Lunch will be provided.
The Oct. 16 meeting will feature brief presentations by student leaders from the Medical Student Research Club and Journal Club as well as M2 students who will discuss their research experiences in the first year of medical school. Mark Willis, assistant clinical professor of community health, will answer questions about the first-year research elective (SMD 616) which begins in January 2013.
The Research Learning Community was developed by the Medical Student Research Club and the BSOM Office of Research Affairs to promote research experiences and research-related educational opportunities for WSU medical students. Programs supported by the RLC include the Medical Student Research Club, Medical Student Journal Club, RLC Lecture Series, and research-focused elective courses for M1s (Introduction to the Research Learning Community, SMD 616) and M2s (Research Learning Community 2, SMD 617).
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Adam Deardorff (firstname.lastname@example.org) by noon on Monday, Oct, 15.
