Advocacy Update: 2011 ACP Health Policy Interns Selected
ACP is pleased to announce that David H. Slade, a third-year medical student at Southern Illinois University and Morganna Freeman-Keller, DO, an Internal Medicine resident at the University of Florida have been selected as the College’s Health Policy Interns for 2011. This internship represents a unique opportunity for one Associate and one Medical Student Member to develop legislative knowledge and advocacy skills by working directly with the College’s Washington, D.C., staff and participating in ACP’s annual Leadership Day.
The ACP Health Policy Internship provides a multifaceted opportunity to learn about the legislative process, healthy policy, and advocacy in organized medicine. Interns will provide assistance with researching and analyzing current issues in health and medical education policy, assisting with on-going advocacy initiatives, and the development of advocacy materials. Interns will have the opportunity to attend Congressional hearings, coalition meetings, and accompany government affairs staff on lobby visits to Members of Congress and their staff. The interns will be responsible for researching and presenting on issues of interest to medical students and residents at ACP’s Leadership Day and assisting in organizing Associate and medical student related events during the two day meeting. At the end of the internship period, we hope that the interns will have learned much about health policy and the importance of advocacy.
Applications for 2012 internships will be accepted this fall. More information about the program can be found here.
