What is Medical Literature Society (MLS)?
The medical field is constantly undergoing changes, both big and small, global and personal. From medical breakthroughs to the medical school application process, there are vast amounts of information that are relevant and interesting to pre-health students. Unfortunately, this information is foreign to many of us as we either have no access to it or it may simply be too difficult or tedious for us to find. The Medical Literature Society offers a solution to this ever-growing problem. We are an online news platform seeking to create a centralized source for all information that pertains to pre-health students. Additionally, we want to empower the pre-health community by creating a forum for discussion on issues and news within the medical field. At the same time, we want students to cultivate a passion for a professional career in medicine by thinking critically about the subtle nuances of a medical career and what it takes for students like us to enter it.
MLS is comprised of four different sections:
- Current Events
Our organization is completely student run. Our members get to decide which articles to write and how they want to write them. Not only do students manage the content that we publish online, they are also in charge of managing the layout of the website and handling the publicity of our organization.
Our club’s inception began in the winter of 2014. In the course of a few years, our articles have accumulated 10,000 views, from all over the world. Furthermore, in less than a year we have expanded to four other schools: USC, UC Berkeley, Washington University in St. Louis, and UC San Diego, each with their own fully functional website. We are excited for the 2020-2021 school year, and we are looking forward to the new opportunities in the near future that will further expand MLS. As viewers, we not only encourage you to see what each of the pages have to offer, but also to “Join the Discussion!”
