Regional Medical Education Conference

Region V is home to eighteen medical and pre-medical student chapters, representing approximately 600 members throughout the states of Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Our yearly Regional Conference serves as a platform for pre-medical students, medical students, residents, and attendings to network, to learn new skills, to share our research, and to commit to community service. This year the conference will be hosted by Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.
