Student Chapters

The student chaptership model is a unique way for Rayos Contra Cancer to recruit interested medical students, while spreading our mission to larger audiences across the nation. Each medical school chapter plays a key role in our organization by helping develop and run our telehealth curriculum. The medical students involved gain key leadership and communication skills, as well as an in-depth understanding of using telehealth as a sustainable solution to global healthcare disparities.
