2014 Student Steps to Success Meeting

2014 Student Steps to Success Meeting

The Maryland, Virginia, DC, US Army, US Navy and US Air Force Chapter hosted the Student Steps to Success program on April 26th at USU. It was again an unqualified success with over 175 students registered for this event. The program included an Internal Medicine Panel on lifestyles, a breakout session on the match, Success in the Clerkship and a mentoring luncheon. Simulation labs as well as the Student Dilemma were offered during the afternoon session with 10 teams from several different programs participating in the dilemma. The abstract competition was once again very successful, and we send out congratulations to the following award winners. This year, a new event, the Ironman Competition, was included during the meeting, and provided the students the opportunity to test their skills in question review. We thank all of the judges, mentors, and residents who participated in ensuring that we had such a highly successful meeting. Special thanks to Dr. Todd Gleeson, the event manager, who spent countless hours to ensure that the meeting ran so efficiently.
