March in Medicine: NC Medical Student Information, Physician Calendars

The NCMS membership often tells us that they find themselves “in the dark” as to what goes on outside the hospital walls or the practice front door.  As most doctors can attest, the day-to-day bubble is all-consuming, often leaving doctors (and therefore their patients), unaware of opportunities for education and advancement.

Such being the case, we’ve taken a quick snapshot below of events and classes for NC medical students and medical professionals across the month of March.  Our advice is only as good as the feedback from docs on the ground, so if you or any of your patients attend one of these events across the month, drop us a line and let us know how it goes so we can share that insight with the entire community.  (Plus, we’d love to hear your stories.)
