APSA 10th Annual Meeting
Posted by the Public Relations Committee on 10 December, 2013
APSA and the American Heart Association (AHA) want to hear what advice you would give your fellow trainees. If you are a resident/fellow, what would you tell rising third- and fourth-year medical students about residency selection? If you are a dual-degree student in the graduate school phase, what would you tell first and second year medical students about lab selection? No matter your stage of training, APSA and AHA want to know what you would tell those following after you. Alternatively, please share any of your experiences showcasing your journey as a physician-scientist in training.
Share your experiences and/or advice, in 200 words or less, using APSA's submission form. With your permission, APSA will compile your advice and share it on AHA's Early Career Blog!
