The Pulse

The PULSE is (and forever will be) a student-driven newsletter committed to educating the student body, highlighting its achievements, and broadening its horizons.


The PULSE Mission Statement

The mission of Meharry Medical College’s student-driven newsletter, The PULSE, is to provide the Meharry community and the healthcare community at large with powerful stories on the current development of the healthcare system from the perspective of Meharry health professional students. Our voice is our strongest character; with it we hope to speak about our experiences of medicine inside and outside the clinic, honor the stories of patients, generate provoking dialogue about healthcare issues, ad ultimately capture the truth of medicine today with the vision of improving medicine tomorrow.
