AMSA Academy

A training ground for physician leaders

...because it takes more than medical school to make a physician.

AMSA Academy is a training ground for physician leaders, established by and for students. The Academy strives to empower physicians-in-training to affect change in medicine. Combining didactics with experiential learning, AMSA Academy courses take medical and premedical students through the core competences of leadership and project implementations, while building on key principles of important topics in medicine.

Each program fosters the value that health care must be patient-centered, effective, efficient, safe, equitable, and timely, as identified by the Institute of Medicine. We see our mission as training physician leaders in order to transform the face of medicine.
