Kelly Thibert, DO, MPH
Kelly had the honor of serving last year as National AMSA President and is thrilled to be in her new role as Immediate Past President of AMSA. Alongside this role Kelly is in her intern year of Family Medicine Residency at Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. She completed her medical training at Nova Southeastern University, College of Osteopathic Medicine and was awarded her Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine and Masters of Public Health degrees in May 2016.
Kelly received her undergraduate degree in Molecular and Microbiology with a minor in Women’s Studies, at the University of Central Florida. During her undergraduate career she became heavily involved with AMSA on both a local and national level. She believes that the AMSA family helped her to realize that she could combine her love of medicine, humanism and activism into a singular fulfilling career. Now entering into her tenth year involved with AMSA she looks back on all of the lessons learned as a part of this “medical school without walls” and is happy to have been involved in such an educational, empowering, thought-provoking organization throughout the beginning of her medical career. Ever since she joined AMSA it has been her home away from home, a second family (#FAMSA). She says that joining AMSA was one of the best decisions that she ever made as premedical student.
