MedPaws is a bit of a different student organization. There are no presentations, no panels, and no shadowing (there is free food though!). The goal of MedPaws is to provide stress relief to fellow medical students through animals. Prior to tests, we host events where members bring their pets such as cats and dogs to play with medical students in a stress-free environment. Students can play with the animals or just socialize in a place outside the lecture hall or library. MedPaws believes that it’s important that students take opportunities to relax and unwind in the face of the ever-rising pressures and responsibilities. Med School isn’t all about studying, after all.
