MSTP Fall 2021 Retreat Speakers

MSTP Fall 2021 Retreat Highlights

On October 16, 2021, the MSTP held its annual Fall Retreat. Even though the retreat was virtual this year, students rated it highly as one of the program's best retreats to-date!

The theme: Is Good Science Enough? – A Virtual Retreat on Manuscript Writing, Getting Published, and Promoting Your Work.The retreat included a variety of engaging sessions ranging from an editor-in-chief providing their perspective and advice on "the evolving landscape of academic publishing," a "Women in Science" moderated discussion panel addressing student questions-of-interest and providing tips on overcoming common barriers to scientific communication and self-promotion, a session on best practices for writing and submitting manuscripts, a session providing guidance on how physician scientists can use social media to promote their science, and a peer-advice session.

We were honored to be joined by the following special guest speakers (pictured above in the top row, from left to right):
