AMSA’s Action Committees represent areas AMSA feels all physicians-in-training should value as vital in becoming a socially responsible physician and healer. They promote their particular areas of interest and associated projects to AMSA members on national, regional and local levels and are integral in helping AMSA maintain its dynamic view of medicine amidst tremendous and rapid change.
Action Committees are run by two key positions:
- Action Committee Chairs: Leaders responsible for directing the activities of their committee and overseeing the work of the committee coordinators. Each of the Chairs will select project coordinators following the Annual Convention to work on specific projects deemed important by that Action Committee.
- Action Committee Coordinators: Organizers who consult and collaborate with leaders, other AMSA committee coordinators and members to grow engagement and involvement on projects and initiatives.
[Note: positions for the 2021-2022 school year are now filled, but feel free to browse the position descriptions to consider for the year ahead. Our Action Committees do evolve over time, so be aware that opportunities can shift from year to year to best respond to pressing, timely issues.]
