AMSA Academy

Student Leadership Opportunity Alert! 

AMSA is looking for student facilitators to help in all of our online courses. Session Facilitators will introduce the speaker at the beginning of session and host the Q & A at the end of session. Whether it’s one session in a series or facilitating an entire program, we believe that this unique program will help enhance public speaking skills as well as provide the chance to network with some incredible speakers. Sign-up today!  

Free to AMSA members, the AMSA Academy is a training ground for physician leaders established by students, for students. The Academy strives to empower physicians-in-training to effect change in medicine, didactic, and experiential learning. Each program focuses on the value that health care must be patient-centered and enforces AMSA’s mission of fostering a community of future physicians through education and advocacy.

Who Should Register

AMSA Academy Scholars are a versatile group of passionate individuals with different interests, experiences, and levels of knowledge of their program topic. Students who have the curiosity to ask why the status quo exists and the creativity to challenge it in productive ways. Students who want to share their new-found knowledge with their colleagues. Programs will foster an online community for students to work together with experts in order to gain new perspectives, knowledge, and clinical skills.
