What will the academic program involve?
The second major component of the academic program will consist of a project development workshops in small groups of approximately 8 delegates, spread across the three days. Each group will focus on one global health issue. These groups will be taken through a process of brainstorming, project design, and development. Delegates will create and deliver a project “pitch” at the conclusion of the seminar, which aims to develop vital presentation skills. These projects may be provided with mentorship and/or funding at the discretion of a panel of social entrepreneurs and global health leaders. This will allow GlobalEx to have a significant impact on our global and local communities within AMSA, MedSocs and GHGs – and will provide students with a “live” opportunity to develop their leadership and collaboration skills.
What else does AMSA have to offer me in terms of global health?
AMSA AcademyAMSA Academy aims to educate, inspire and connect medical students on issues that are important to them. It is designed to engage Australian medical students with AMSA on an educational level, whilst providing the framework to further professional development of vocational interests and skills. Most importantly, it will encourage students to become future leaders and agents of social change. The idea of the AMSA Academy is to provide a consistent educational resource for students to complete across all universities. It is our vision that AMSA Academy will be a thriving hub of knowledge gathering and sharing for medical students across Australia.
