Physician Scientist Forum

The Physician Scientist Forum (PSF) is a gathering of students and faculty to meet for various topics including scientific writing workshops, student research seminars, and grand round style clinical consults. The goals of the PSF are to provide activities to help MD/PhD students envision the next steps of training through interactions with practicing physician scientists and fellows, experience connections between science and medicine through analysis of cases in the context of our community, and provide UMass Medical School (UMMS) physician scientists the opportunity to learn and potentially participate in research conducted by our MD/PhD students and others at UMMS.
