While our primary focus at the Amyloidosis Speakers Bureau (ASB) is on medical school students and internal medicine residents, we are very open to presenting to other groups that are aligned with our objective of closing the education gap within the medical community.
In early 2023, a Tufts University School of Medicine student in the PA program learned of our upcoming May presentation to the medical students. Conversations ensued with the medical school course director, PA program director, and Mackenzie’s Mission regarding the possibility of the PA school class joining the medical school class for the ASB presentation. Success!
So in May 2023, the ASB presented to 200 Tufts University School of Medicine medical students and 50 physician assistant students!
The experience and feedback from the PA students to their program director was so positive that all have agreed to make this an annual event within their curriculum!
