Students—How would you change medical education?
Submit your idea to the AMA Medical Education Innovation Challenge by Dec. 11
For its Medical Education Innovation Challenge, the AMA is seeking proposals from students on how to transform medical education to better prepare future physicians for the evolving health care system. The top three teams will win cash prizes, and their proposals will be shared with key members of the medical education community.
Who can participate: Teams of two to four students (an MD or a DO student must create and lead the team)
What are the prizes: The first-place team will win $5,000, and the second- and third-place teams will win $3,000 and $1,000, respectively. The first-place team also will be invited to present their innovation at the Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium meeting in March 2016.

Accelerating change in medical education with visionary partners and bold innovations
The initiative has funded major innovations at medical schools and brought these schools together into a consortium that shares best practices and lessons learned. The consortium is disseminating the proven transformation strategies emerging from these leading medical schools across the medical education environment.
Great minds are at work accelerating change in medical education
We know it's time to change. Schools want to change, and we've gathered together people who are doing projects that are really making a difference in the way physicians are trained for the future.
