AMA Medical Specialty Showcase and Clinical Skills Workshop

AMA Medical Specialty Showcase and Clinical Skills Workshop
June 11th, 2016
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Hyatt Regency Chicago, Riverside East Exhibit Hall

The AMA Medical Specialty Showcase and Clinical Skills Workshop gives medical students an opportunity to speak with physicians in different specialties to help them choose their own specialty and practice specific clinical skills. Part of the AMA Annual Meeting, this event offers physicians a chance to meet and mentor students considering their fields.

Why Medical Students Should Attend

Students stress the importance of obtaining comprehensive information on medical specialties from physicians before entering the residency selection process. This showcase allows students to meet physicians from varied backgrounds and receive career and clinical advice across the broad spectrum of medical practice. Students can register for the National Medical Student Meeting, which includes the AMA Medical Specialty Showcase and Clinical Skills Workshop, via this form.

AMA Tools to Help Choose a Specialty

  • The AMA compiled the most frequently entered specialties into Choosing Your Medical Specialty, a guide designed to simplify the research process and help medical students with this career- and life-defining decision.
  • Explore your residency and fellowship options with FREIDA Online®, the AMA residency and fellowship database.

Information for Physicians: Specialty societies in attendance and who are seated in the AMA House of Delegates are invited to participate in the Medical Specialty Showcase. To learn more about the Clinical Skills component, please contact Mike Moran.

Note: Only specialty exhibitors who can guarantee that a resident or physician will be present at their booth will be approved to exhibit.We encourage specialties to seek out volunteers already attending the AMA meeting or call on local-area physicians.
