Resident Writing in the Time of COVID-19

Wednesday, June 24
6pm to 7pm
Via livestream here. 

MGH residents have played a crucial role as frontline caregivers during the pandemic and several of them have written about this experience for national publications. Join co-hosts Suzanne Koven, MD, MFA, MGH Writer in Residence, and Medicine-Pediatrics resident Vinayak Venkataraman, MD to hear residents Chase Anderson MD, MS; Alessandra Colaianni, MD; Clayton Dalton, MD; Jack Turban, MD; and Pooja Yerramilli, MD read from and discuss their work in The New Yorker, The New York Times, STAT, WBUR Cognoscenti and elsewhere. 

Simulation at the Museum

Join us to learn how realistic simulators are transforming training in the health professions. In these hands-on demonstrations by the MGH Learning Laboratory, you will get the chance either to take the vital signs of a full, lifelike human mannequin, or to locate and retrieve tiny objects from inside a knee model, using surgical instruments and a tiny camera.
Look for dates in the coming months.

No registration is required. Each session begins at noon and runs until 1:30 pm. Please arrive by 12:15 pm to be able to participate in this immersive program.
