Local Representatives' Role
As an OSR representative, your role is two-fold:
- First, you must communicate the opinions of your student body to the national officers so that the OSR can effectively represent medical students on a national level.
- Second, you can take OSR national priorities and objectives from your colleagues and the national level and implement them at your own school.
The AAMC is an extensive organization with resources devoted to every aspect of academic medicine. Feel free to get involved on a national level, choose a specific interest, or simply bring your ideas back to your institution. If you have any questions, ask your colleagues, including your representatives on the Administrative Board.
