Physicians of the Future Summit-Region 2_Purple graphic

Annually, the Medical Student Section regions host Physicians of the Future Summits which allow for educational programs and further discussion on policy development relevant to each region and its membership.

In 2022 the region summits were held virtually Feb. 5.

  • Congratulations to Mahima Goel, Hunter Herbert and Madison Hoenle, Region 2's New Member Outstanding Award recipients!
  • The region delegation and policy chair provided an update on how Region 2-authored resolutions have been passed at the HOD and even led to action at a national level by the AMA.  The region delegation and policy chair also led a resolution workshop to help prepare for Annual 2022.
  • The region enjoyed an update on upcoming community service initiatives by the community service chair and an overview of national-level health-related policy that is currently being discussed on the Hill by the region's advocacy chair
  • Region 2 ended the summit with a presentation from Karen Dionesotes, MD, MPH, current RFS Section Delegate and council member on the Council on Science & Public Health. Dr. Dionesotes has served as a former MSS chair and region 2 member! She talked about the valuable lessons that she learned through her MSS work and how they have impacted her career both within advocacy and outside of it.

This year all regions convened for a joint session on Feb. 5 from noon.-2 p.m. Central, which was followed by separate region summits.
