Hello Future Physicians!

We hope that you all enjoyed your winter break and are ready for Spring semester! With a new semester also comes a little bit of change. Over break Cole made the decision to resign as Vice President. With that Stella will be taking over his position and a new Clinical Experience Chair needs to be elected. We will be holding a mandatory GBM within the next two weeks where we will hold elections for this position. Information about the election processes will go out later this week, but know that it is open to all SFP members who are in good standing with the organization. Please look at some of the events that are already being put together for all of you and have a great first week back!
