I have read the Privacy Policy and grant consent to use my data.

Thank you for your interest in becoming an APSA leader! Applications are now being accepted for Elected Positions: Executive Council and Standing Committee Chair positions. Please note that Committee Chair applicants are required to have demonstrated experience in an APSA Standing Committee prior to applying (the previous committee need not be the same committee as the chair position). The deadline for leadership applications for elected positions is Friday, March 27th, 2020 at 11:59PM.


This application is also used for those interested in serving on a Standing Committee or Ad Hoc Committee, as well as those wanting to become an Institutional Representative. Applications for Standing and Ad Hoc Committee Members and Institutional Representatives are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Standing Committees are permanent committees that are responsible for APSA's central operations. 

Ad Hoc Committees are focused on specific initiatives and task-driven projects. They are formed and dissolved based on need and are overseen by Standing Committees. Examples include the Mentorship Ad Hoc Committee.

Institutional Representatives serve as the voice and crucial link between APSA and the physician-scientist student population.

We hope to have you on our team!

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Best regards,

Hannah Turbeville

2019-2020 APSA President-Elect
