We are more than just medical students.
The members of the medical student body are not scholars merely fixated on the long-sought title of “MD” or “DO.” We are distinct individuals with passions, curiosities and insurmountable complexity.
As future physicians, to share these complexities with each other is to engage with the broader medical community. in-Training, the online newspaper for medical students, will be a forum for this collaboration.
in-Training is the agora for medical students, the Grecian intellectual center for news, commentary, and the free expression of the medical student voice. It is of medical students, for medical students, and by medical students.
When in-Training was conceived, the publication was seen as an opportunity for medical students to share in their common experience. Today, it has the opportunity for much more: a community for medical students to contribute their unique perspectives and opinions on medicine, the health care system and the world at large.
Whether you have a inspiring experience or lesson to share with your peers, are interested in a career in physician-journalism, or simply want to have your voice heard, in-Training is for you. We look forward to working with you.
