Institutional Representatives

Institutional Representatives serve as the crucial link between APSA and the physician-scientist student population. If you are interested in getting involved, apply to be an Institutional Representative. Applications are accepted year round.

The Institutional Representative:

  • Serves as a liaison between APSA and the physician-scientist student population at the represented institution. This includes but is not limited to announcements of APSA events and projects, gathering feedback with regard to APSA directives, as well as providing a voice for their students within APSA.
  • Is strongly encouraged to attend the Annual APSA Meeting in order to represent their institutions during the APSA Business Meeting
  • Is strongly encouraged to be an active member of APSA by serving on one of APSA's four standing committees (Annual Meeting, Finance, Policy, and Public Relations). These standing committees not only rely on the APSA Institutional Representatives and other APSA Members to achieve their goals but also heavily rely upon them for continuous feedback and advice to guide the individual committee's path and future.
  • Gains the opportunity to serve on the APSA Executive Council. Once an APSA Member has served in an Institutional Representative position, he/she becomes eligible to run for any of the positions on the Executive Council including President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer (Finance Committee Chair, Annual Meeting Committee Chair, Policy Committee Chair, Public Relations Committee Chair, Member-At-Large (to represent the MD-PhD voice), Member-At-Large (to represent the MD-only voice), and Member-At-Large (to represent the social sciences / humanities).
  • Strives to exemplify the goals and missions of APSA on the local level at their home institution.
