Amelia Mackarey of Clarks Summit, a medical student at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine, was named co-editor-in-chief of in-Training, an online magazine for medical students.
Ms. Mackarey’s co-editor is Nihaal Mehta, a medical student at Brown Alpert Medical School. All content on in-Training is contributed by medical students worldwide. As a peer-edited publication, the in-Training editorial board consists entirely of volunteer medical students and is editorially independent, with all content reviewed solely by the medical student editors and the editors-in-chief prior to publication. Ms. Mackarey is also the founder and editor of a monthly publication at her School of Medicine entitled, Grateful@Geisinger Commonwealth.
“I am so honored to be involved with in-Training because the magazine aims to enrich the medical student experience by providing a venue for free expression of the medical student voice, cultivating collaborative relationships between medical students from all parts of the globe, and offering an intellectual center for discussion of medical experiences as they relate to news, politics, pre-clinical and clinical years. Most importantly, I am looking forward to recruiting more Geisinger Commonwealth students to be involved with the magazine throughout the next year,” Ms. Mackarey said.
