We have restructured the group events to greater serve our mission statement and we now have 3 faculty advisors from distinct fields. We know that the general attitude in MSC seemed to be swaying away from having new interest groups and actually even consolidating some. That being said, we truly believe that this interest group would be greatly beneficial to incoming medical students and should be distinct from other interest groups. In fact, our classmates also agree that there is indeed a strong need for this interest group. In addition, our faculty advisors are enthusiastic and are willing to speak about the group, so feel free to contact them. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns prior to the meeting.”
