Thank You for a fantastic 2019 Summer AMA!

Dear AMA DocSIG members and friends,

Thank you so very much for your participation in any of the six events that AMA DocSIG organized for the 2019 Summer AMA in Chicago! Every year more of you decide to join our events and make them better and better over time.

At this Summer AMA conference, we surprised you with a paid “pay your own way dinner” and our special session on campus visits and job offer negotiations was so successful that it ended up being a “standing room only.”

We also had the great honor of awarding our Inaugural 2019 AMA DocSIG Mentorship Award to our friend Dr. Mathew Joseph and recognizing two doctoral students with the Mathew Joseph Award (winner and finalist). You can find more information, including pictures, on our website (docsig.org).

As we continue to strive to provide AMA DocSIG members with better learning and partnering opportunities, we would appreciate it if you could take a minute to fill out our very quick survey here: https://wvu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eV97d9YRx0iJSXX. We appreciate your feedback and welcome your comments and suggestions.

As you can imagine, organizing all of these AMA Summer and Winter events take a lot of effort from AMA DocSIG officers, so please allow me to take a minute to thank each and every one of them for volunteering their time and for their commitment to AMA DocSIG: Jennifer Locander (Chair Elect), Ashley Thomas (Vice Chair of Special Projects and Partnerships), Tiffany Vu (Vice Chair of Communications), Orhan Bahadır Doğan (Vice Chair of Online Engagement), Divya Ramachandran (Assistant Vice Chair of Online Engagement), Farnoush Reshadi (Vice Chair of Membership Insights), Sash Vaid (Vice Chair of Research – Productivity), Phil Wiseman (Assistant Vice Chair of Research – Productivity), Christina Kuchmaner (Vice Chair of Research – WWW), Iman Raoofpanah (Assistant Vice Chair of Research – WWW), Raika Sadeghein (Vice Chair of Best Practices), and Ashley Goreczny (Immediate Past Chair).

We hope to hear back from all of you and look forward to seeing you at future AMA DocSIG events!

Best of luck with the 2019-2020 school year!
