What's this about?

What’s in Store

A learning experience not like anything you’re likely to experience in medical school. You arrive empty-handed. No notes. No preparation. You’re asked simply to come with an open mind — allowing yourself to be expertly guided through an interactive experience of observing and analyzing art, photography and sculptures — while learning to sharpen your powers of observation.

Who is Amy Herman?

Leader-whisperer to Planned Parenthood, Georgetown University Hospital, the FBI — and more. She’s been called “our nation’s secret weapon — providing leadership training to top officers in the United States military, law enforcement, medicine, education, and industry”. Amy is now bringing her innovative, interactive pedagogy to AMSA members — the future physicians eager to make a difference (you). Get a sense of Amy’s magic here in this TED Talk
