Although we have just begun our 3rd year, your class officers are already hard at work. Thus far, we have had a luncheon with Dean Scandalis where we discussed some of our comments and suggestions with regard to the pre-clinical years’ curriculum. In addition, we discussed some of our plans for our last two years at NYCOM with him.
The four of us have also met to expand our skeleton agenda for the upcoming year. In addition to social events, such as breakfast before Shelf Exams, we are interested in enhancing educational equality among rotations to ensure we all have similar opportunities and experiences. Along the same lines, we hope to provide more cohesive orientations with regard to 4th year clerkships and applying for residency. This is just some of the material we are currently working on for this upcoming year. Any suggestions, concerns or questions you may have are always welcomed!
Best of luck in all of your endeavors this year, Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions, suggestions or comments!
