in-Training is the online magazine for medical students, founded in April 2012 by Aleena Paul and Ajay Major, medical students at Albany Medical College.

All content on in-Training is contributed by medical students worldwide. As a peer-edited publication, the in-Training Editorial Board consists entirely of volunteer medical students and is editorially independent, with all content reviewed solely by the medical student editors and the editors-in-chief prior to publication.

Mission Statement

in-Training seeks to:

1. enrich the medical education experience through self-reflection.

2. foster discourse among medical students.

3. cultivate collaborative relationships between medical students on the global stage.
