Professional Development

About the Professional Development Committee

As of 2016, the sole focus of the Committee is maintaining a regular calendar of specific Professional Development webinars, numbering 3-4 a year, and are separate from other webinars executed by the organizations. The Committee works on voting on topics and themes, serves as organizers and moderators, and presents ideas for speakers. The webinars are developed with the oversight of the Committee Chairs and the Executive Director and are executed through the AAMC team.
