Community Survey

Community Survey

Physician Scholars: we want to hear from you!

We've created to a survey about the future of this group. It's your chance to tell us what you want out of this community going forward. Your candid input is greatly needed and appreciated. (This is not the post-conference survey). It's quick! (5 to 15 minutes to complete.) Fill out survey in post above, or go to survey by clicking here.

Between the 2013 and 2015 conferences a small working group formed to explore the possibilities for growing our community. It's led by Jennifer Ghandhi (UChicago, Public Policy, Year VI) and Dana Greenfield (UCSF, Med Anthro, Year VIII). In addition to gathering your feedback via the survey, the working group will investigate such issues as organizational structure, communications, financing, and alumnae relations. We are currently developing a mandate for work to be accomplished by the 2017 Harvard conference. By completing this survey, you will help us meet these goals.

If you want to join the working group, get in touch! We need 2 more people to help us move things along. 

At your service,

Jennifer Ghandhi
Dana Greenfield
