National President

Deborah V. Hall, M.D.

2014DebHallDeb Hall is a member of the class of 2015 at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. She is honored and excited to be serving as AMSA’s National President in 2015-16.  Prior to this, she served as Vice-President for Internal Affairs, National Secretary, a co-Director for the Health Care for All Campaign, and Chair of the National Premedical Team. She completed her undergraduate studies at Wesleyan University, with a major in neuroscience and behavior.

Before returning to school full-time, Deb was a full time mom and an advocate for families of children with disabilities. As an advocate, she helped families to navigate service systems and work for policy reform. Patient advocacy is at the heart of what drives Deb’s career goals, so it was no surprise that she found her way to AMSA very early in her training – she and AMSA have been inseparable ever since.

In her spare time, Deb enjoys spending time with her son and her dog, cooking, reading, and practicing yoga.
