Podcast TMA: The Students Speak

Medical students are not only the next generation of America's physicians, they also are the lifeblood of organized medicine. Nearly 750 students from around the country -- including dozens from Texas -- gathered in Chicago this week for their own house of delegates meeting. (Highlights) Download the show. Just like the physicians' house, the students debated reports and resolutions and determined the AMA Medical Student Section's positions on the issues of the day. They also sent some of their own resolutions on for the physicians' house to consider. This special edition of Podcast TMA is a conversation with four Texas medical students who are new to the AMA Medical Student Section House of Delegates. Find out what they found interesting and unusual and why students back home should care what their peers are doing in Chicago. Our guests include:
  • Brittney Culp of Texas Tech - Amarillo, chair of the TMA Medical Student Section Executive Council;
  • Matt Brooker, a student at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth;
  • Alicia Cleaver, a student at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth; and
  • A.J. Jain, a student at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth.
