SHPS Visits Vanderbilt
SHPS visited Vanderbilt University, where they met with faculty and staff from Vanderbilt's School of Medicine, Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, Medical Scientist Training Program, and Vanderbilt Summer Science Academy.
Last week, the SHPS pre-nursing subgroup gathered at Stirling’s to enjoy coffee and fellowship. Seniors shared their knowledge of the nursing application process and experiential learning opportunities.
Medical Board Games Night
The latest OMHP fellowship event featured medically-related board games. Hilarity ensued as students acted out disease states, answered questions about organ structure and function, and enjoyed pizza and dessert. Look for our next Medical Board Games Night before finals!
Student societies SHPS and SMHS write about current topics in health care. SHPS Event Coordinator Heather Pittman, C'18, reports on recent research into poultry flu vaccines with the potential for decreasing the risk of transmission into humans, while SMHS Executive Assistant Sue-Yun Kim, C’19, teaches us about kidney stones.
