Committee on Long-Range Planning
About the Committee
The AMA-MSS Committee on Long Range Planning (COLRP) is responsible for studying issues referred by the MSS Governing Council that relate to the future of the MSS, such as structure, function, and strategic planning. In performing this function, COLRP will serve as a repository for MSS data and work products.
COLRP Survey on Your AMA Involvement
Every three years, the Committee on Long Range Planning of the AMA-MSS compiles a report that identifies the priorities of the Medical Student Section as we progress into the future. In the 2010 report, our section became explicitly aware that individual involvement changes dramatically as students progress through medical school and into their internships and residenies. In an attempt to identify the underlying causes of these shifts, the Committee on Long Range Planning has compiled a survey to assess factors that may keep students involved in our organization at key transition years in their training. The results of this study are anonymous and will be used to compile a report for the AMA-MSS Assembly.

COLRP and the MSS Operational Plan
Every three years, the AMA-MSS develops an Operational Plan (formerly known as the Strategic Plan) to guide the efforts of the Section. The 2009-2010 COLRP was charged by the MSS Governing Council with developing the MSS Operational Plan for 2010-2013, which was presented to and adopted by the MSS Assembly at the 2010 Annual Meeting. In developing the 2010-2013 MSS Operational Plan, COLRP considered input from a wide range of sources, including medical student members of the AMA through an online survey.
