Last Week's Events
With the Fall 2016 semester kicking into gear, AMSA is already participating in a lot of fun and informative events. Just last week, we attended a suturing clinic hosted by the U.S. Army. On Friday, we held our first general meeting AND attended a presentation given by Ross Medical School. And lastly, some AMSA members went on an adventurous Sunday field trip with Dr. Nika, AED, and APHP to go cliff jumping at Nelson's Landing!
AMSA This Week (9/12-9/18)
This week, we have three events going on that EACH fulfill a different requirement.
Events like these will be happening all semester, so make sure to keep up with our social media pages, check the calendar, and sneak a peak at our blog posts for more information.
Thursday 9/15 - United States Air Force (Professional Development Event)
Learn about the benefits of joining the U.S. Air Force as a medical student/doctor and their Health Professional Scholarship Program.
Thursday 9/15 - Touro University Open House (Physician Shadowing Event)
Touro is inviting prospective medical school applicants to join them in this event. For those who are interested in becoming a D.O., this is a great event to attend!
Saturday 9/17 - Vegas Roots Reggae Festival (Humanitarian Event)
This is a good way to receive volunteer hours and a great way to support a local organization that is focused on the prosperity of those living in the Las Vegas community.
And on that note, let's get started on making this semester with AMSA UNLV the best one yet! Good luck with your classes and see you at the events!
