In addition to monthly meetings and lectures, multiple wet labs are scheduled during the year to provide hands on activities aimed at improving clinical skills. Weekly rounds on internal medicine topics are held in a problem based learning format, which helps integrate theoretical knowledge from class with practical applications from real hospital cases. All students are welcome to be members.
