Now Accepting Applications For the Medical Student Leadership Group
The ACC is excited to announce an opportunity to join a national board of medical student leaders. The leadership council is tasked with promoting collaboration among our student members, growing our student outreach and engagement, and working on common tasks to promote ACC's Medical Student Member Community.
ACC Medical Student Leadership is continuously looking for ways to improve and grow our engagement with medical students. Your voice and ideas are needed to build new projects to provide value to medical students. We encourage you to apply by Feb. 28.
What are we looking for?
- Collaboration – You will be tasked with working alongside a group of student leaders from around the US to promote ACC medical student membership and grow our offerings. We are looking for each student to bring a unique and different perspective that will help us carry out certain goals.
- Diversity – We define diversity in many ways. We are passionate about creating a group of medical students from a variety of different backgrounds. We are looking for students who possess individual skills that will help contribute to ongoing and new projects. Whatever your background, past experiences and skills might be – we want to know!
- Leadership – We are looking for motivated medical students in our student network who are eager to help us grow and succeed. You will be working closely with others, so we need applicants committed to paving the way for future projects and innovations.
- Attending monthly 1-hour virtual meetings to discuss updates, implement new ideas, assign tasks and collaborate on future goals. Meetings will occur at 8 p.m. ET (subject to change) to account for the geographic location of each of our members.
- Completing monthly tasks in advance of each meeting. Each medical student leader will be expected to complete tasks each month that often include collaboration and team efforts.
- Medical Students from DO or MD programs; preference is given to first-, second- and third-year students for continuity.
- Ability to commit to attending monthly meetings and completing tasks required prior to each meeting.
- Professional mindset open to working in a team-based environment with students from diverse backgrounds.
- Be prepared to receive and give honest and constructive feedback.
