Advocacy  & Rally Day Poster Session The Art of Interviewing Keynote Speakers
Join us on Capitol Hill for a day of Advocacy. Receive lobby training, rally and meet with your representative. AMSA’s Annual Poster Session & Project Exhibition is an opportunity for physicians-in-training to develop their skills as a professional presenter while showcasing innovative projects completed at their home institutions. The more interviews you go through, the easier they are to do. This session at the AMSA Convention & Exposition provides a low-stakes, safe environment for you to practice your interviewing skills. You’ll meet one-on-one with program advisors who will help you refine your message with real-time feedback. Sign-up on-site to reserve your spot. Prominent speakers in health care are invited to give keynote presentations each year to AMSA Convention & Exposition attendees. You’ll hear from several influential, authoritative personalities as they share their experiences and wisdom about pressing issues in medicine. Past speakers have shared their expertise on diverse topics, from clinical care to advocacy, to wellness and more.

A Convention favorite, the Exhibit Hall is your one-stop shop for all your needs and the tools you value most as a physician-in-training.

AMSA’s national leadership elections also take place at this time.
