Clinics are a vital part of the MSFS co-curriculum. These sessions, which can range in length from a few hours to a full day, focus on a single skill or topic that is vital to practitioners in the international relations field. Some clinics are concentration-specific, while others explore subjects that are relevant for students across multiple concentrations. MSFS recruits subject-matter experts to teach the clinics, who incorporate current and relevant material in their hands-on training sessions. For a list of past clinics, please see the list below.
