|M.D./Ph.D. Program Activities|
All students in the M.D./Ph.D. program gather for lunch on the third Monday of each month to discuss program-related issues with the Program Director. These meetings provide a forum to address the needs and concerns of current students in the program. More specifically, the purpose of these meetings is to plan and schedule M.D./Ph.D. program events (including orientation, regular meetings, joing meetings with the M.D./Ph.D. committee, casual meetings, special events, the annual retreat, etc.), to maintain and update the M.D./Ph.D. website, to address the concerns of M.D./Ph.D. students, to coordinate M.D./Ph.D. student activities with other student activities on campus and to aid in recruiting talented new students.
