LISTOS: The LMSA Instruction, Support, Training & Orientation Session for Advisors and Alumni/Professional Track

Philadelphia, PA US
March 5, 2022
The LMSA Instruction, Support, Training & Orientation Session for Advisors (LISTOS) was developed to create unity among medical trainees, faculty advisors, and healthcare professions with the goal of promoting the recruitment, retention, and promotion of Latina/o/x, Hispanic, of Spanish origin, and related (LHS+) individuals in medicine.
LISTOS aims to ensure our advisors are prepared and trained on an annual basis in order to effectively guide future leaders of medicine. In discussing and adopting best practices for advisors, we all move closer to a field in which we are well-represented and valued for our unique contributions to medicine.
