This “Back to School” Edition is focused on reflections on our premedical and medical education. There is much discussion on healthcare education as we move from a traditional curriculum, driven by learning objectives and assessment to a curriculum that is the outcome that is driven by the needs of our health and health delivery systems. Submissions on the theme reflect unique experience taken to enhance one’s premedical or medical education, or include reflections on what can be done to enhance the educational value of the premedical and medical curriculum.
New to this issue are Your Story Matters, a series to introduce the stories of the diverse SNMA membership, and Letters to the Editorial Board, as we continue to welcome letters from our readers.
The Fall 2013 issue also highlights up-to-date events occurring in the Student National Medical Association.
I hope you enjoy the Fall 2013 issue of the Journal of the Student National Medical Association. Consider contributing to our Winter Holiday 2013 edition, “Humanism in Medicine.” As always, we would love to have you as part of the Publications Committee.
Happy 49th Founding Day!
Yours in SNMA,
