Future Physicians for Change 2024 Dates Announced

July 10, 2023

This was one for the books!

For three action-packed days in June, we took Phoenix by storm. We convened as a mighty force of future physicians from across the globe. We learned. We networked. We sutured. We postered. We speed-dated. And we had an amazing time doing all of it. This was Future Physicians for Change 2023.

The energy from Phoenix is still fresh; we’re basking in the joy of collaboration. This was a first for us at AMSA: we partnered with like-minded organizations to pull off this convention: the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association, Medical Students for a Sustainable Future and Medical Students for Choice. How cool is that? Collaboration at work to make change happen. Thank you to you all: this is what progress looks like.

And just announced…

This coming spring, we’ll convene in Washington DC: AMSA’s original home base and an awesome location for national advocacy action. Save the dates: May 30 – June 1 for Future Physicians for Change 2023. We’re taking over the Hyatt Crystal Regency and soon the line up will start, well, crystallizing (see what we did).

One thing you need to know: #FP4Change isn’t just a 3-day event. It’s a 365-day ride. And it starts now — here — and it gains momentum all year long. We start by building leadership skills; delving deeply into pressing topics that aren’t always offered in medical school; learning how to advocate for change; and networking with influencers and peers. 

Then, in late spring, we bring it all together in person and it’s straight-up magic. Changemaking magic — in the name of health equity.
