Student Travel Guidelines – Updated October, 2011.
  • The Student Affairs Office effective immediately is considering travel funding proposals from the following groups ONLY: AAMC, AMA, AMSA, AMWA, APAMSA, MSMA, and SNMA. If you are part of a special interest group, please see an MSAC officer, listed on the Student Organizations page.
  • Students must be a Year 3, 4, 5, or 6.
  • Students must be in good academic and professional standing.
  • Each individual student is allowed one (1) trip per academic year.
  • Total reimbursement cannot exceed $1000 per student. If more funds are necessary then contact your research mentor, or check with the organization to see if travel scholarships are available for students.
    • Maximum of $42 for meals per person, per day.
  • Research requests may still be considered by the Student Affairs Office.
    • The requesting student must be listed as the primary presenter in the conference.
    • The requesting student must also present a letter from their mentor.
  • If you are awarded reimbursement from the Student Affairs Office for participation in a conference, you are required to give a short presentation at the next upcoming MSAC meeting (first Thursday of each month, always either in Theater B or C).
  • Students are allowed to attend events with the expectation that they will share the information they have gathered with fellow students upon their return. This will benefit both the organizations and individual students.
  • Students must receive permission from their clerkship or instructor to be absent for event prior to turning in request form.
