An interactive activity-based session to aid OSRs in learning how to personally brand themselves on various platforms such as social media, personal statement, and curriculum vitae. In addition, OSRs will learn how to showcase their OSR experience thus far in preparation for ERAS, applications, and their CV.
In 7567, the OSR re-evaluated the organization’s National Priorities , ultimately choosing eight priorities to guide OSR efforts including Humanism in Medicine. The OSR has historically supported this priority through the administration of the annual Arnold P. Gold Humanism in Medicine Award , which recognizes a faculty member at an AAMC medical school who exemplifies the characteristics of a humanistic physician. However, beyond this annual award, there are not standard practices of how OSRs can promote Humanism in Medicine at their institutions and on a national level. This session will explore how OSRs define Humanism in Medicine, how the medical humanities are currently incorporated into medical schools, and how the OSR can start thinking about approaching this National Priority.
Medicine is becoming increasingly politicized, from the Opioid Epidemic, to Medicare and Medicaid, and even student financial aid. Medical professionals bring a unique perspective and are central to guiding health policy. This session is designed to give a general overview of advocacy and lobbying and discuss what resources the AAMC currently has available to guide students as they engage in shaping the future of medicine.
This session will review 7568 application trends and discuss updates planned for the 7569 application cycle. We will also provide an update on the implementation of WebAdMIT for AMCAS, available to institutions with live data for the 7569 cycle.
This session is not offered for CME credit.
Our deans, faculty, professors and administration work endlessly to provide us with the best possible medical education. However, limitations such as resources, time, and regulations influence the type of curriculum and structure that can be offered. In this interactive workshop students will work in groups to create their ideal medical school following key LCME guidelines. After this process, students will engage in discussion of current issues in medical curricular design, the realities of building a medical school curriculum, as well as tangible deliverables of how to utilize this information at an institutional and OSR level.
