AAHCI STUDENT LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE (ASLI)

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, it adversely affects and disrupts medical student education. Much in-person teaching has shifted to virtual education, posing significant challenges while also providing an opportunity to transform medical education. In response to the impact of interruptions and challenges the pandemic has placed on medical students and their education, this intiative aims to encourage student leaders to share their experiences with “Virtual Education in Medicine”, as well as explore innovative ideas on how to enhance this new education landscape. Specifically, student candidates will be asked to:

  • Highlight existing innovative programs that improve access to virtual medical education
  • Share proposals for new, innovative programs that improve access to virtual medical education

ASLI Launched in LAC Region

AAHCI, in partnership with the AAHCI LAC Regional Office host, University of Sao Paulo Medical School (FMUSP), is the first regional office to launch this initiative and invite medical students from member institutions in the LAC region to submit proposals sharing innovative ideas on virtual medical education.
