AIMS Symposium Return to listing


UNC Advocates for Inclusion in Medicine and Science (AIMS) is partnering with the American Physician Scientists Association to present our virtual annual symposium that brings together students who are interested in or currently pursuing a degree in medicine and/or science. Reflecting the advocacy in AIMS’s mission, the theme of this year’s virtual symposium focuses on advocacy: advocacy for patients, advocacy for peers, and advocacy for ourselves. The symposium will feature keynote speakers, including Dr. Lisa Carey and Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett, as well as panels and workshops that work towards students’ professional development. Proceeds from this year’s symposium will go to White Coats Black Doctors Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to increase diversity in the medical field by supporting the development of future Black physicians. We welcome undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, dual-degree students, and residents to join us!
