in-Training is the online peer-reviewed publication 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-reviewed 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 is the agora of the medical student community, the collaborative center for discourse and the free expression of our voices.

in-Training seeks to:

1. Promote students’ self-reflection that is both authentic and empowering.

2. Cultivate a diverse, inclusive and interconnected community.

3. Shape the medical student experience, and in doing so, the future of medicine.
