Each course is a community of interested physicians-in-training, engaged to learn more about a specific topic. The courses are facilitated by two or three dedicated AMSA members who serve as the Course Directors. These Course Directors organize a curriculum and select invite experts in their respective fields to come and expand your understanding of the topic. The courses range in size from 10 to 60 participants. The Course Directors facilitate between 8 and 20 sessions between the months of October and March. The sessions are structured around presentations, readings and discussions. At the end of their experience, participants develop a project utilizing the knowledge gained from the course. The projects are an application of their new skills and knowledge, as well as a professional development opportunity in the participant’s school or community. Throughout the experience, participants gain valuable mentorship from their Course Directors and partner organizations to enhance their projects.
