This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Student National Medical Association’s National Leadership Institute and Board of Directors meetings in Columbus, Ohio. It was sponsored by Nationwide Children’s Hospital along with The Ohio State University College of Medicine, and they did an excellent job of hosting the organization.
The event was sold out, and I was extremely happy with the amount of pre-medical and medical students alike who attended. There was also a great variety of excellent speakers. I had the opportunity to help our Region V Director present an “SNMA 101” workshop, and it was a pleasure being able to engage the medical students in attendance. It was also a great networking event, and I was excited to meet and chat with some of the surgeons and other physicians in attendance during our dinners.
I flew into Ohio directly after taking my shelf exam on Friday, and my schedule was super packed, so I did not get a chance to go out and explore Columbus. I was very impressed with the little I was able to see though, and I will definitely be adding OSU to the list of places that I would like to do an away rotation with next year.
All-in-all, I had a wonderful time in Ohio and it’s always a great time when I am with my SNMA family. We were able to get a lot accomplished, and I am looking forward to what the rest of the year brings :-)
