Usman Hasnie, a fourth-year medical student at the School of Medicine, was selected to a national leadership position with the American Medical Association. Hasnie was one of 15 medical students elected to a one-year term on the organization’s Committee on Long-Range Planning.
The committee focuses on issues surrounding the AMA’s Medical Student Section. These include issues such as structure, function and strategic planning as presented by the student section’s governing council.
Recently, Hasnie has been working with members of the planning committee to provide a report on the value of restructuring districts and the relationship to delegate voting among the medical student section of the AMA. The report will be presented at this month’s interim AMA meeting in Orlando, Florida.
Hasnie said the committee is also preparing a featured educational event for medical professionals and students on technology resources to help prevent physician burnout. That event will also be presented at the upcoming interim meeting.
