Service Day at MANNA 

Throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic, our TSBMIM members have continued to serve the community in whichever ways have been possible including preparing and packing food at MANNA Philadelphia. While we are very excited to return to regular student activities and continue our other outreach and service projects we realize that the communities in need before the pandemic are still in need now. We are extremely grateful for MANNA welcoming us in to get some work done and look forward to returning soon!

Pathway to Residency Panel

Our 2nd Panel, " Pathway to Residency" had a phenomenal turnout and was a great panel for all students trying to learn more on what it takes to become a competitive applicant for a residency program.

We were very fortunate to have Dr. Orlando Kirton, Dr. Michael On’Gele, and Dr. Jamiela McDonnough as our guest panel speakers.
Dr. Kirton serves as Chair of the Department of Surgery at Jefferson Abington. Dr. McDonnough is a general surgery resident at Jefferson Abington, and Dr On’Gele is an anesthesiology resident at Penn Medicine.
The three of them discussed important topics pertaining to entry into residency, their journey as a physician, and advice on how to approach Board Exam preparation.

Pathway to Medical School Panel

Our first panel, “Pathway to Medical School” had a great turnout! It was both very informative and extremely helpful to those who are currently, or will be, in the application cycle for medical schools. The panel discussed topics such as letters of recommendation, interview tips, diversity and inclusion, and much more!

We want to thank all of our panelists for coming out and sharing their wise words of wisdom and advice!
