As we traveled back to Albany from our presentation at the American Association for Medical Colleges (AAMC) regional meeting in foggy Atlantic City, we reflected on our past year with in-Training in this update, the ceremonial 100th article on in-training.org.
Just two weeks ago, on April 5, we celebrated our first birthday. One year since our official founding and 99 articles, 7,500 unique visitors and 65,000 pageviews later, in-Training has grown leaps and bounds, from a skeleton website to a budding medical student community filled with the opinions, reflections and prose of over 57 medical students at 32 schools across the United States and Canada.
First and foremost, we would like to thank you, our readers and writers, for your support over this past year. This publication would not exist without your contributions and your passion for sharing your unique perspectives with your medical school peers.
We would also like to thank our editors, the dedicated medical students and budding physician-journalists who make in-Training possible. To our two fourth-year editors, Kimberly and Nikki: our best wishes for the next great chapters in your medical careers.
Thank you to the Scientific American Incubator blog and Stanford University’s Scope blog for sharing our story with the science journalism community. Your coverage has been an invaluable milestone in our journey to reach more of our colleagues in science and health communication.
Join us as we enter our second year as the agora of the medical student community by submitting your pieces to in-training.org and spreading the word about in-Training to your colleagues. We are always seeking new articles, columns and artistic works.
