The 2017-2018 Medical Student Council Perspectives on Medicine Series

Perspectives on Medicine brings a variety of speakers to the School of Medicine for talks on medical education, clinical medicine, public health, biomedical research and the state of the school. Past speakers have included former surgeon general Vivek Murthy, M.D., M.B.A., and medical school Dean Robert J. Alpern, M.D. Topics range from the impact of the 80-hour work week for residents to the status of women in medicine to race-based disparities in health care.
