Seminars at Columbia

P&S students have a unique opportunity to engage in scholarly work and to participate in the many scholarly communities at Columbia University

Medical Scholars Seminar Course

This is a new small group seminar course (RSRH 7201 M001) for P&S students in both their first (Fundamentals) and last (Differentiation and Integration) phases of their medical education that is designed to enhance analytical and communication skills.  It meets monthly through the academic year and will specifically focus on the development of sophisticated questions and (hypo)theses, rigorous approaches to addressing these hypotheses, and critical thinking skills required to interpret findings and discoveries.  Most importantly, it will hone students’ oral and written communication of intent and findings.  By supporting students with distinct scholarly interests, the course will also cultivate our abilities to communicate across the many disciplines that are at the heart of medical advances.

Seminars in Research at P&S

This seminar series is offered specifically to students in the Fundamentals curriculum.  It was started by the Vice Dean for Education, Dr. Ron Drusin, to expose students to the most exciting research being done at P&S - and to pique student interest in the many ways in which top quality research and medicine are integrated.
