What is the Medical Education Team?
“Doctor,” comes from the Latin docere, meaning “to teach.” The mission of the Medical Education Team at AMSA is multipronged. From a patient perspective, we aim ensure that undergraduate and graduate medical education is sensitive and responsive to the evolving health care needs of diverse international communities.
From a provider perspective, we aim to increase accessibility to medical training for traditionally underrepresented segments of our society whilst advocating for a reduction in the financial burden that education places on burgeoning physicians.
Overall, we strive to equip our members with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be active participants in shaping an educational environment that best prepares physicians to enter the dynamic health care arena and ultimately make a substantive difference in the lives of their patients.
