A new initiative within APSA this year will feature the activities of outstanding local chapters each month. This month, we take a look at the Tri-Institutional Chapter of APSA at Weill Cornell Medical College, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Rockefeller University.

This is the second in a series of events "A career in academic medicine: where should I start?" Discussion focused around the reasons they chose their academic careers, mistakes they see often happening from medical students and residents and how to chose a career mentor. For more information about the Tri-Institute LC, check out their webpage!
