Faculty Adviser:

MITBS will provide first and second year medical students of any scientific background level the opportunity to engage in intellectual discussions led by prominent AMS faculty in a small group setting. The class will discuss original literature describing the scientific research behind many of the key topics taught in the first year curriculum, therefore deepening their knowledge of the topics and strengthening their appreciation of science behind modern medicine. MITBS will also allow first-year students to learn more about the type of research their faculty members conduct. Prior literature reading experience is not required, but attendance and participation in the discussions are expected. Enrollment is limited to 15.
