I am helping plan the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation National Medical Student Conference which aims to connect medical students with physicians in the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. This year it will be held at UCLA!
I attended last year's event in St. Louis and it was a blast! It is a great opportunity to network with program directors and other students, present your research and clinical projects, and have fun.
Date is Feb. 9th and 10th 2018.
If you are interested in attending, planning, or hosting other medical students please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
Interested in a holistic approach to well-being and improving your relationship with patients by using a diverse set of healing modalities? Attend the Annual Student Conference for Integrative Medicine on February 24th, 2018 at Tamkin Auditorium, Ronald Reagan Medical Center! This is a one-day event open to all students and health professionals.
Integrative Medicine (IM) is the practice of medicine that combines conventional medicine with Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), for which there is evidence of safety and effectiveness. The goal of the Integrative Medicine paradigm is to safely and appropriately merge the strengths of modern biomedicine with those of whole-person traditions in order to bring optimal healing to patients and advance healthcare in the U.S.
This year's conference theme is The Art of Graceful Aging: Optimizing Wellness Throughout Your Lifespan Through Integrative Health. We will feature speakers who have professional backgrounds in different fields of IM for addressing health problems that come with aging. There will also be a panel and workshops for attendees to have a rich, interactive experience. Attendees are encouraged to network and explore different fields in healthcare to apply to their own current or future practice!
