  • Do you know a female physician who is changing the world?

    Nomination Submission Deadline: October 1, 2012 (5pm ET)

    The Women Leaders in Medicine (WLIM) awards were created by AMSA in 2007 to recognize women physicians and educators who are changing the face of medicine through their lives, their professions, or their teaching. These women deserve recognition for their accomplishments and dedication to fostering tomorrow's women leaders in medicine.

    We are currently accepting nominations for the 2013 WLIM awards. All AMSA members are encouraged to fill out the simple online form and tell us about an inspiring woman who has influenced the student's medical career. They could be professors that you've had or they could be women who you have never met but have impacted your careers through their amazing work.

    The recipients will be invited to attend the AMSA Annual Convention in March 2013 to receive their award at a special reception. Many of our past awardees have considered their Women Leaders in Medicine award a truly meaningful honor because it comes directly from the voices of students. At AMSA, we hope to give back some recognition to these amazing women in addition to generating awareness about the importance of fostering leadership in medicine that promotes healthy change and equality ...

  • AMSA Delegation in Mumbai, India

    Namaste from Mumbai, India!

    The AMSA-USA delegation spent this past week at the IFMSA India AM 2012 meeting, fighting off Delhi belly, and promoting our upcoming March meeting (March 9-15) and AMSA National Convention (March 14-17).

    This being my first GA, it was eye opening to learn from such varied perspectives medical students have in different regions of the world. While pointing out major differences in medical education and practice worldwide, the presentations and conversations I had with fellow delegates moreso proved that our experiences as physicians in training are very similar. from frustrations with preclinical years to wanting improvements in community health, patient safety, and health policy, IFMSA provides a collective ground for a worldwide student voice to be heard and help us improve our training.

    AMSA USA came out strong with a presentation and update of MM2013, which everyone in the plenary session was very tangibly excited about:



    We were successful in passing two significant policy statements, one on road safety, and a highly debated measure to improve conflict of interest policies for funding of future IFMSA meetings. Thanks to AMSA, all delegations will now be notified if meetings are receiving pharma funding, in advance, so there can ...
