The Medical Scientist Training Program hosts numerous events throughout the year. Whether it is an event of a scientific nature, such as the monthly Discussions on Medical Research or a purely social occasion, such as the Winter Dinner all events are designed to bring our students together for interaction across class lines. Scientific ideas are exchanged in an informal setting; junior students seek advice form those that have "been there and done th​at" and everyone, administrators and students alike, have a chance to take a breath and catch up.
