Training Grounds UNC and Chicago were both great successes thanks to YOU! Thank you to our excellent speakers and dedicated staff at both events. Most of all, thanks to all the attendees for everyone's enthusiasm, passion, and drive to take on the BIG issues. You never cease to impress us!

Stay tuned for next year's Training Grounds!

We hope you'll join us for the AMSA Annual Convention in Washington, D.C.February 26 - March 1, 2015 

AMSA Training Grounds are intensive weekend conferences designed to help you acquire, practice, and hone the knowledge and skills necessary for student-led action.

Just as training grounds are areas for teams to practice their skills and enhance their fitness in preparation for the matches that matter, the AMSA Training Grounds facilitate the formation of empowered student leaders as advocates and agents of change.

AMSA Training Grounds feature networking, professional development, and hands-on clinical drills. You will return to your academic community equipped with the skills, agility, speed, and - most importantly - confidence to lead today for tomorrow's healthcare.
