Weekly Wire Archives


The WeeklyWire is an official communication tool of the Larner College of Medicine. Student feedback led to its development and continues to inform iterative improvements. All non-curriculum-related email communication are directed through the Wire to help support manageable email inboxes for the students. It's your one-stop-shop for all med school happenings outside of the classroom! Please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Medical Student Education with any questions.

We are all incredibly excited to officially welcome members of the Class of 2021 to our community this August!
