A program of the Massachusetts Medical Society Committee on Diversity in Medicine
Reality Medicine discusses the opportunities, obstacles, and keys to success for a career in medicine. The program is open to medical students, residents, fellows, and new physicians, as well college students and post-grads considering a career in medicine, particularly those from minority backgrounds and those interested in reducing health care disparities.
