Spotlight on local APSA chapters: Tri-Institutional Chapter

Posted by the Public Relations Committee on 14 September, 2015

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. On September 2, 2015, around 50 members of the APSA Tri-Institute LC joined Dr. Craig Thompson, President and CEO of MSKCC, and Dr. Mark Souweidane, Director of Pediatric Neurological Surgery at WCMC and MSKCC, for discussion about choosing a career in academic medicine. 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!
