Will Ricks, second-year medical student at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, recently was elected chair for the Southern region of the Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The regional chairs serve on the administrative board for OSR and organize the OSR regional meeting held each Spring.
“I was fortunate to be elected to the regional chair position this spring at the regional meeting. I believe being the chair will offer an opportunity for developing professional skills like leadership, communication and organization,” Ricks said. “Additionally, I think it will expand my views of medicine through interactions with medical students from across the nation.”
The regional chairs focus on region-specific issues and serve as a conduit of information from the OSR administrative board to individual OSR representatives. They also coordinate information exchange within the region, ensuring that students in the region are informed of AAMC and OSR administrative board activities.
