CAMs Meeting details
All students are required to attend. The meetings start at 5:30PM. Dinner is served from 5:30PM - 6:00PM, followed by a presentation. The speaker is introduced at 6:00PM, and the talk typically is followed by a question and answer session ending by 7:00PM.

Registering for CAMS
MSTP students in Medical School (MS1s, MS2s, MS3s, MS4s) don't "register" for any courses. You are all automatically enrolled in all of the courses you are supposed to take.

MSTP students in Graduate School (Graduate School tuition being paid - GS1, GS2, GS3, GS4) register for the class when you register for your other classes.

Evaluation is based strictly on attendance. It is the student's responsibility to sign in at each seminar. You receive a pass or fail grade for the course. You must attend at least 80% of the 10 meetings held, not including the holiday party, in order to pass the course.
