Introducing the New Editors-in-Chief: New Directions for 2018


Dear colleagues,

Since its inception in 2012, in-Training’s mission has remained the same: to serve the global medical student community. In 2017, we continued to see progress in this direction. From our release of a new project to enhance medical education, formation of a new Poetry Thursdays series, publication of widely-shared articles, adding amazing volunteer editors to our Editorial Board, another successful year of our Writers-in-Training program, and creation of a new in-Training book for family and friends (stay tuned — coming soon!), the in-Training team has worked hard to share the thoughtful reflections and new initiatives from medical students and allied health professionals worldwide.

As in-Training moves forward into 2018, we are pleased to announce a recent transition in executive leadership. Nihaal Mehta, an third-year medical student at Brown, and Amelia Mackeray, an second-year medical student at Geisinger Commonwealth.

Congratulations, Nihaal and Amelia! We are all looking forward to seeing how they shape in-Training, its Editorial Board and its readers and contributors as they tackle their new roles.

Top priorities for Nihaal and Amelia include: expanding in-Training‘s reach to additional medical schools and their writers and filling key vacancies in our editorial board as graduating members transition to residency positions.

If you have comments or would like to get involved, please email Nihaal and Amelia at editorinchief@in-training.org and sign up for our newsletter.

Yours-in-training,

Ria and Andy
