UACOM's First APSA Local Chapter Event

In this blog post, Dr. Yael Kusne discusses the first APSA LC Event at the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix...

We had our first APSA event at the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix in February 2015 and it was a success! The meeting was planned as an introduction to APSA at our school, and we invited Dr. Nabil Dib, a physician scientist, to speak. Although a world renowned cardiologist, Dr. Dib has also been very successful with navigating the world of research and running a successful research program. He spoke to the students about his process – from medical student to physician to scientist -- the hurdles, the breakthroughs and the fallbacks. The meeting was excellent! We had over 25 students in attendance, all of whom were excited to hear about what types of events APSA at UACOM would be holding next! For our next event, we plan to bring in another physician scientist for a discussion regarding funding procurement. After the meeting, multiple students commented that the APSA chapter was an excellent addition to our school, as it allows them more exposure to research in medicine.
