Medical Specialty Societies
Specialty Societies seated in the AMA House of Delegates are invited to participate in the annual AMA Medical Student Section Medical Specialty Showcase. The AMA-MSS Annual Meeting consistently attracts over six hundred medical students (primarily first years) from across the U.S. The purpose of this event is to provide an introduction to your specialty and offer promotional materials to assist career decision-making. Students have emphasized the importance of obtaining more comprehensive information on medical specialties from physicians before entering the residency selection process. The showcase presents an excellent opportunity to educate these students on the attributes of your specialty, mentor students interested in your field, and encourage these young leaders to maintain active participation in your organization after medical school. Note: Due to student requests, only specialty exhibitors which can guarantee a resident or other physician at their booth will be approved to exhibit. We encourage specialties to seek volunteers already attending the AMA meeting or local-area physicians.
Medical specialty societies or physicians who'd like to partner with interested colleagues in your specialty, must complete a Reservation form by Friday, May 17.
