The moment is here: AMSACon will be held this year in Phoenix, AZ on June 15-17, 2023! Sure, this is a few months out, but the action starts now. It’s that awesome of an event. OK, a few tips to get you in the zone. (And watch this space, we will keep you up to date as speakers and sessions magically solidify.)
What do we stand for? What will we work towards? You help us determine this path. Remember, AMSA is student-led. This is our magic ingredient. This lets us hone in on issues that matter to us, as the next generation of physicians. The House of Delegates (HOD) is AMSA’s official policy-making body that allows representatives from each local chapter to meet once a year to vote on AMSA’s policies and to elect our national officers. This means you. Join us!
The annual meeting is virtual this year and takes place Feb 3-4, 2023. Find out how you can apply for a national leadership position, submit a resolution and more here.
The Wellness & Student Life Action Committee will be hosting a panel on “How to Navigate Relationships in Medical School” on November 16 at 5pm PST/8pm EST over zoom. This will consist of a panel of medical students talking about their experiences balancing medical school and their personal relationships. Whether you’re starting a family, or wondering if dating in medical school is for you, this will be open to everyone to ask questions!
We’ve teamed up with our partner, Child Family Health International, to offer the CFHI AMSA Global Health Scholarship. Here, you can explore global and public health issues broadly, learning how health systems around the world deliver healthcare in a variety of diverse environments, exploring cultural interplays in urban and rural areas and how indigenous healing practices are integrated. We will award one scholarship worth $975 for a 4-week virtual internship or a $1500 scholarship for a place-based program taking place in 2022 or 2023. Apply by November 15, 2022 — open to any AMSA undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate member.
We’ve been loving seeing you all dialed into our Scholars Programs this fall! Get ready, as we’re teeing up the next batch which will open Dec 2 for registration. What’s in store? Browse our curated list of courses focused on pressing subjects — topics and issues that are often not offered in medical curricula — and plan to join us: Health Justice, Global Health, Transgender Health, Public Health, Medical Humanities — and more.
