Online/Phone Interactive Session | American Physician Scientists Association (APSA)


The American Physician Scientists Association (APSA) is a national student-run organization that provides advocacy, mentorship, and career-development opportunities for physician-scientist trainees.

As part of APSA’s commitment to trainee mentorship and advocacy, APSA coordinates Interactive Sessions between trainees and leading scientific investigators to discuss the upcoming trends in science, physician scientist training, and policy among others.

Interactive Sessions are *group-phone discussions*, typically lasting between 1-1.5 hrs, and aim to put participants in contact with experts in various fields. Examples of past interactive sessions include ‘Grant Writing 101: Helpful Advice for Writing Your First Pre-doctoral Fellowship” and a Keynote Session with Dr. Brian Druker discussing the development of imatinib for the treatment of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia.

They are having their first APSA Interactive Session of the year, entitled
the *“Ins and Outs of Physician Scientist Training Applications,”* on *July 27th, 2017* with Dr. Robin Lorenz from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Dr. Skip Brass from the University of Pennsylvania, and Dr. Kerry O’Banion from the University of Rochester.
