The application to be a 2020-2021 Resolutions Ad-Hoc Committee member is now live.
The Ad-Hoc Committee is a group of three to five students who review resolutions submitted for TexMed 2021. Prior experience writing resolutions is helpful, but not necessary to apply.
This is a great opportunity for any member looking to take a more active role in the Texas Medical Association Medical Student Section. The deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m. (CT) Nov. 1.
Also, please consider applying for the TMA-MSS Inter-School Mentorship Program and submitting to the Open Forum for TMA-MSS TexMed 2021 Resolution Ideas. Deadlines for both of these will be in December 2021, exact dates TBD.
In addition, the Executive Council is rolling out a new project in which we will periodically send out discussion briefs on topics that may not be covered in medical school but are still relevant to our careers and future practices. We will email these briefs to you periodically and open authorship opportunities to all MSS members. Going forward, these briefs will be published on the public TMA blog – Me and My Doctor (public audience including patients and laypeople) – as a new section called "Medicine with a Med Student" or disseminated directly to the MSS (medical student audience) as newsletters entitled "Let Me Be Brief."
In the meantime, keep an eye out for the first brief written by Ryan Wealther, Swetha Maddipudi, Alyssa Greenwood Francis, and Sarah Miller, four of your MSS Executive Council members on the TMA blog. This first brief covers the importance of voting and tips for voting safely.
