INITIATIVES

With numerous current and prospective initiatives, supplementing our ventures in developing an inclusive medical community, increase accessibility of resources, etc. - ultimately, the aim of all our initiatives is to continue furthering students' affinity for medicine! In addition, we believe that having various mediums for these initiatives support one common mission.
