Students at Weill Cornell Medical College are active members and lead local chapters of national student organizations such as the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) and Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA). They participate in local and regional meetings, and are supported by Weill Cornell Medicine faculty.
In 2018, in addition to the “Preparation for Clerkships Workshop," faculty and housestaff from Pediatrics, Medicine, Obstetrics and Psychiatry met with members of the Weill Cornell chapter of SNMA. This was a session requested by our students to answer questions and offer strategies and tips for success.
During this dinner session, minority students had the opportunity to glean strategies and keys to successful clinical rotations from residents, chief residents and faculty. The students shared that they felt well supported and much more comfortable approaching their rotations.
