To Students:
I am with the Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana. We are hoping to notify students about our 4th year sub-internship opportunities along with financial support we can provide for housing, travel, etc. We are currently accepting Sub-I applications for the 2021-2022 academic year. Our Sub-I rotations take place at Partnership Health Center in Missoula, MT and Flathead Community Health Center in Kalispell, MT.

 See below for more information. If you can please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested, we would very much appreciate it.
I hope this finds you well. Please reach out with any questions you might have!

I am happy to provide contact information for our faculty physician who oversees medical student rotations if you think that would be helpful.

Hello,

My name is Anand Narayan and I’m the current diversity officer of the MGH Radiology Department working with Dan Chonde, the chair of the ARRS Diversity Committee. We are organizing Radiology Boot Camp, a multi-institutional commitment of excellence between Massachusetts General Hospital, Emory, Vanderbilt, and the University of Wisconsin to provide sustained longitudinal guidance, mentorship, education and research opportunities for all years of medical students, regardless of prior experience. We are committed to building a diverse pipeline of learners that are well versed and equipped to serve ever-changing patient populations.

We will be holding our next session on Saturday, May 8 from 2 PM – 6 PM EST, focused on Life Skills. Our keynote speaker will be Gorick Ng, a career advisor at Harvard, author of the recent book on “The Unspoken Rules: Secrets to Starting Your Career Off Right”.  As a first generation college student, Gorick “found himself struggling, because he didn’t understand workplace norms in the way that his (mostly white, middle- to upper-class) peers did.  While they’d been taught how to network, angle for promotions, and “speak the language,” he was left to figure it out on his own. Now, Ng counsels young people on how to avoid those mistakes and take on their first job in a way that puts them on the fast-track to success.”

Our preliminary program also includes sessions from expert speakers on financial planning, communication skills, time management, and negotiating contracts, sponsored by MRI Online. We would love to invite students who are part of ANAMS to this bootcamp. 

Let us know this would be of interest to your membership and we would be happy to forward event details. The sessions are free, virtual, and open to all.

Thanks,

Anand and Dan
