Dr. Malhotra and the Members in Transition and Training Committee created the program to attract more students to the pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine fields.

“Our orientation was great,” says scholar Katherine Clark, a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania. “They really guided us and provided us with a good sense of mentorship upfront and explained how to get the most out of the conference. I was very impressed by the leadership so far, and it’s more than I’ve received at other conferences.”
