This month’s Leader Spotlight is Dylan Carroll! Dylan is a student at Trinity School of Medicine Clinical Sciences Medical Chapter, pursuing a focus in Emergency Medicine/Infectious Disease.
Why did you join AMSA?
I joined AMSA to become connected to medicine on a personal level. Everyone gets into the medical profession for a vast number of reasons, but the central theme is knowing and helping your fellow man. AMSA brings people together.
Why did you become an AMSA leader?
I became an AMSA Leader because I have seen the the positive impact that AMSA has on the community that I wanted to be able to help continue its growth.
What is your Favorite AMSA Moment?
The recent national convention was a big highlight for the year so far. Hundreds of people coming together with so much energy and passion for medicine that it was palpable. I was able to connect with like-minded individuals and share ideas that I will be able to implement in the coming year.
What advice would you give to current & future AMSA leaders?
To listen more than you speak. One of the most important tools you have as a leader and future physician is the ability to listen.
