Western Region

September 2017

Welcome to the Western OSR! Firstly, congratulations to our new Western Region leadership team for the 2017-2018 year! We held our elections online this year due to the timing of our regional conference. Thank you to all of those who ran for positions and all of our representatives for voting. We still have one position open for a regional delegate, which we will elect at our upcoming Learn Serve Lead meeting. Although we are the smallest region, we have an enthusiastic and dedicated group and we hope you will consider joining our leadership team! If you are interested in this opportunity or have questions about the position, please contact me.

As fall approaches, we look forward to the upcoming AAMC Annual Meeting: Learn Serve Lead 2017 in Boston, Massachusetts from November 3-7. We invite you to submit posters for the combined GSA/OSR poster session and reception that will be held on Friday, November 3, 2017 from 5:00 PM – 6:15 PM. Please submit your poster abstracts by Monday, October 2. Your national OSR representatives and I are planning some interactive breakout sessions for OSR-specific programming during Learn Serve Lead. Furthermore, with support from the GSA, we are preparing a session on the retention of underrepresented students in medicine. This session will also discuss existing interventions and support strategies for medical students and residents from underrepresented communities in pursuing a career in academic medicine. I hope to see you all there!

Finally, I want to recognize that the current political and social climate has brought unprecedented challenges to medical students across our nation this year. Please know that the OSR represents the student voice in the AAMC and we as your national representatives work to continue these conversations. If any of our OSR school-specific representatives have inclusion and diversity programming at your universities that have helped your classmates navigate through discussions of intolerance, please consider sharing these ideas with me.
I look forward to seeing you all at Learn Serve Lead 2017 in Boston! If you have questions, concerns, or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
