AMSA chapters across the country are doing amazing things every day. Here at AMSA’s National office, we are constantly impressed with the passion, dedication, and creativity we see in our chapters and their chapter leaders. Chapter Spotlight gives us an opportunity every month to share some of the exceptional work our chapters have been doing recently. Get inspired!

ACOM-AMSA held their second annual SIMlympics competition this past weekend. Teams for four competed against each other in a bracket style tournament in a race against the clock to save their patient.
How did your chapter support this objective?
ACOM-AMSA set up the SIMlympics competition with 8 teams of four. We had faculty and local physicians come to judge the competition and opened it up to the community. The winners, ‘The Lightening Bone Setters’ will be sent to the 2017 AMSA National Convention this spring to compete at the national level.
What does the leadership team to contribute to the success of the chapter as a whole?
Our AMSA leaders did a phenomenal job or organizing and setting up this two day event. We had students as well as members from the community come out to support and watch the teams compete against each other.
