Third Year medical students may voluntarily enroll in the Practice of
Medicine 3 Course. Students meet monthly in small groups with faculty
facilitators to discuss issues relevant to humanism and health care
systems. Each month they submit an essay about an aspect of the
assigned topic. Facilitators are invited to nominate their most
insightful students for the POM3 Essay Award. Selection is based upon
review of three essays from nominees, with a maximum of two student recipients per year, or three in the event of a tie.
