Annual medical education conference
April 16-19, 2020
This is it, the New 2020 Vision! As you may be aware, given limitations imposed by the current COVID-19 pandemic in our nation, the leadership of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) has decided to forgo its on-site 2020 Annual Medical Education Conference ( AMEC) in Cleveland, OH.
Instead, we will be breaking new ground by hosting AMEC 2020 as a virtual conference and exhibit fair, April 16-19, 2020, in partnership with the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). We are all in this together, and we want you to join us in this exciting, innovative and collaborative approach to AMECthis year!
Our AMECconference title ‘The 2020 Vision: Dynamic leaders for a Health Revolution’, could not be more appropriate. In today’s climate, the importance of increasing diversity in our healthcare workforce is paramount. Our goals to reach diversity, equity, and inclusion requires all members of the medical community to be a part of the conversation and the solution. I’m ecstatic about this monumental collaboration with AMSA because it embraces a unique opportunity to further our missions and reach a broader audience on a level never seen before!
Working in partnership with AMSA, the AMEC Online2020 will enable SNMA to utilize the latest inonline platforms to host our organization’s workshops and programs and innovative virtual exhibit fair tailored specifically for SNMA members and attendees. The professional exhibit hall will be on April 17 at 12-9 pm EST and the pre-medical exhibit hall will be on April 18 at 12-9 pm EST. Some of the aspects to get excited about are below:
SNMA 365 App:
