Sterling, VA – November 4th 2016: The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) will host its annual Fall Conference at the CUNY School of Medicine, November 19-20, 2016. Bringing together physicians-in-training and dedicated leaders in student development and learning, this two-day event affords attendees the opportunity to network, learn and share successes throughout their journey into the medical field.
AMSA has packed the event with content tracks from esteemed speakers in the clinical and educational arena as well as hands-on exercises to build essential skills for residency preparation. Attendees will be immersed in the exploration of current issues in medicine, discussions about healthcare on the fringes of society and best practices to make deeper connections with patients.
“AMSA events are always so amazing,” says Dr. Kelly Thibert, AMSA National President. “The speakers present content students don’t get at school, and they get to talk to hundreds of people who are going through the same life situations.”
Created with the demanding schedule of premedical and medical students in mind, the AMSA Fall Conference connects peers, leaders in the medical field and supporters who may not otherwise cross paths – in one place, in two days. “The conference was an incredible opportunity to meet passionate speakers who highlighted the multifaceted nature of medicine. I would definitely encourage other students to attend,” says medical student and AMSA member.
Register for this event online through November 13, 2016 or, onsite Saturday, November 19, 2016 at Shepard Hall, CUNY School of Medicine.
