Combined Sections Meeting has ample opportunities for student engagement both clinically and professionally. Becky recommends preparing activities in advance to make the most of your conference experience as, “There is always an opportunity to learn at CSM.”
Becky encourages students to reach out to many of the lecturers from Combined Sections Meeting with follow up questions. She has found that, “People are happy to respond so don’t be afraid to [email]. They are open to answer any questions. They are there to teach.”
