So MSRO serves a lot of different purposes. Our mission is basically to support students, to educate them, to have them learn about healthcare in a very different way than they would through their medical training.
The MSRO office is really great at, you know, you hear about that when you first come in as a first year, and they're a great resource. You are asked to meet with them. And so that was really my starting point when thinking about mentors, like I knew the area I was interested in. Generally, I was kind of open at the time, but meeting with the office was really my opportunity to think about expanding that and also getting into something maybe I wasn't as experienced in.
We have students that are doing nano technology, which is pretty mind blowing. We've got students very much interested in artificial intelligence. How do we get computers and algorithms to define or better identify cancer or certain sort of abnormalities in imaging? Really, really a large range. And so that is the point of meeting with students very early on one on one to find out what are they interested in. We have several research tracks that really cater to different interests that the students have. So the tracks are clinical translational research, medical humanities, medical education, quantitative biomedicine and global health. And so students who, for example, with medical humanities, sometimes they want to develop a course on wellness or they want to develop a course on writing, you know, student writing, and so they can develop this course.
We actually just literally launched an incubator for diverse ideas for innovation in medicine. We're opening new tracks that students can pursue. So, for example, a tech track, a public health track, innovation tracks that also count for historical kind of academic research requirements. So I think Sinai is really open to, again, funding these programs, putting excellent physicians, administrators, at the heads of these programs.
Our students are absolutely empowered to come up with their own ideas for research or program development in both the Human Rights program and the Global Mental Health program. In fact, you know, we welcome the ideas.
And I do think that Sinai is very receptive to students also advocating for themselves. So if you don't see a program, approach an administrator or faculty member who has maybe part of that in their background, or who just seems like they're really interested in student life and advocate for themself, and you know, I'd be shocked in most cases if you weren't able to make that for yourself.
