2023 Columbia University Medical School Fair Virtual Panels

School Fit

February 11, 2023

The goal of this panel will be for our students to walk away prepared to engage with the application process and feel confident interacting with medical schools. We want to tackle imposter syndrome and how to build the best application, find a medical school that is an excellent fit, and prepare to be life-changing physicians increasing diversity among the medical force!


Medical Careers in Global and Climate Health

February 18, 2023

During this panel, we hope to ignite a conversation with panelists who can speak to how medical schools are incorporating global health and the human health impacts of climate change into their curriculum, as well as how doctors and faculty are practicing climate health and environmental medicine in their careers. We will be convening early and late career experts and academic representatives who can serve as a resource for students to learn more about what adventurous pathways are available and/or what resources and programs medical schools are offering to help students integrate human and planetary health in medicine.


Medical School to Residency Program Match Process

February 25, 2023

This panel will discuss the medical school to residency match process, how important it is to prepare in medical school, and what pre-medical students should consider when planning for their future.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (Finale)

March 4, 2023

As a final event, please join us for an informative conversation regarding how the medical school curriculum and the field of medicine in general are working to be more diverse and inclusive from the perspectives of attending physicians and medical school administrators from 10:00 am-11:30 am. During the second portion of the panel, from 11:30 am-1:00 pm, we will be hearing from current medical students and resident physicians about their experiences within those systems. This session will be the conclusion of the 2023 Medical School Fair.
