Kelly Thibert, D.O.
Kelly is honored and excited to serve as National President of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). She will spend the year spearheading the organization ensuring that the mission and goals are upheld. Her goals for the year include continuing to advance AMSA’s work on healthcare access, the opioid epidemic and understanding of osteopathic medicine. She will also continue to engage members in advocacy and leadership on both the local and national levels. She is excited to work with members at every level of training and to meet all of these future leaders of medicine along the way.
Kelly is a recent graduate of Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she obtained her Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine and Masters of Public Health. Kelly received her undergraduate degree in Molecular and Microbiology and 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. Now in her ninth year of involvement with AMSA she still believes that the AMSA family helped her to realize that she could combine her love of medicine and humanism into one amazing career. Ever since she joined AMSA it has been her home away from home.
Kelly is a Florida native who has recently moved to DC for her year as President. While she is excited for the change, she is nervous about the snow! In her spare time, Kelly enjoys spending time with her partner (Asia) and family, reading, running and dancing.
