Leadership and Lobby Weekend confirmed for March 31 - April 2, 2012!

OMSA is proud to announce that our annual Leadership and Lobby Weekend will be taking place this year on March 31st - April 2nd, 2012!

This three-day event will start with a brand new Leadership Summit on Saturday, March 31st. The Leadership Summit will explore complexity theory, appreciative inquiry and effective communication strategies, and provide participants with a better understanding of their own learning styles. This hands-on and interactive session is designed to help participants apply new skills and knowledge to their own leadership roles. It will include guest speakers and panelists with a variety of leadership expertise, tackling the important question of how physicians can influence funding and decision making in the heath-care system.

The rest of the weekend will be focused on lobby day. Sunday, April 1st  is an opportunity for students to understand and discuss the “ask” and prepare for the next day when they will get the opportunity to meet their local MPP to discuss the "ask" and current issues affecting medical students province-wide.

Five delegates will be chosen from each Ontario medical school to attend the event. For more information, including how to get involved, please contact your local VP External!
