MUSC MSTP Women's Advocacy Group
This group provides MSTP women with the opportunity to discuss specific inequalities and issues, identify and build relationships with mentors on campus and in the community, network with peers, and learn to be self-advocating in the advancement of their careers. In order to accomplish this, students gather monthly for social events, community outreach activities, and a seminar series featuring guest speakers from MUSC, the surrounding community, and outside institutions.
