Summer is just around the corner.
It is a busy time for medical students and graduates, from research and clinical fellowship opportunities to planning for upcoming residencies. While I hope you are able to squeeze in some fun in the sun, don’t forget to take some time to think about your financial future after graduation. Now’s the perfect time to use your voice to speak out on the public policy decisions that impact medical students like you.
Here are a few ways you can stay involved in ED to MED over the summer:
