Our education imparts the knowledge, attitudes, and skills that we will use as physicians, and determines the extent to which we will be able to meet the needs of our patients and the healthcare system at large.
Our Action Committee’s mission is to oversee and enhance AMSA educational programming through sharing of quality improvement resources and systematic evaluation tools in order to develop quality and effective programs for AMSA members, and to use these programs as tools to advocate for medical curricular reform that serves to improve patient care.
