Learn Serve Lead 2022: The AAMC Annual Meeting

Learn Serve Lead 2022: The AAMC Annual Meeting

Registration is Open!

Learn Serve Lead is the premier AAMC learning and networking event. We are eager to gather in person for this year’s annual meeting Nov. 11-15 in Nashville, Tennessee. Our learners and leaders have long waited to reunite with like-minded peers and reignite the spark of collective learning. This year, we will connect with one another in commemoration of what the last few years have taught us. We’ll also look to the future and explore what lies ahead in medical education, patient care, and biomedical research.


Connections Housing is the sole provider of housing reservation services for Learn Serve Lead 2022. Meeting registration will be required prior to making hotel reservations.

What to Expect

Our distinguished lineup of Learn Serve Lead 2022 speakers will discuss a wide range of topics affecting the academic medicine community, leading to meaningful and impactful conversations. These speakers are invested in furthering and strengthening the education of current and future physicians and scientists, advancing biomedical research, and improving patient care through thought-provoking lectures and collaborative dialogues. Leaders in health equity, racial justice, climate change, gender equity, and more will lead complex discussions and encourage participants to reflect on these issues.

Remember, you don’t need to be an institutional leader or a physician to attend. All you need is an inquisitive mind; a passion for improving the health of all; ideas for advancing medical education; and a willingness to listen, learn, and share.
