How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Overseen by a Board of Directors, the Foundation's professional staff works with student leaders to develop projects and initiatives that will benefit not only medical students, but also the health and well-being of the American public.  AMSA Foundation programs train hundreds of students, residents, and practicing physicians through three-day institutes, week-long training programs, summer fellowships, year-long scholar programs, and more. These current and future leaders in health care are trained in skills such as communication, research, advocacy, media training and proposal-writing, and in specific action areas that range from HIV and microbicides to women's health, complementary and alternative medicine, and health disparities. The AMSA Foundation knows and has seen medical student action make a difference in the lives of those they are helping as well as in the students' own lives, affecting their career choices, patient interaction, and advocacy efforts. Student action projects have included linking physician well-being to fewer medical errors, environmental justice tours, international exchange programs and organizing medical student volunteer efforts in the wake of national disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.
