Medical students were first offered Academy membership in the early 2000s, and their role continues to evolve.
In December 2007, the first group of medical students were selected to become members of the Medical Student Subcommittee. Since then, this outstanding group of six medical students from across the nation have worked to develop resources for both medical students and Pediatric Interest Groups
. In the fall of 2013, the group will expand to 10 members with one member representing each AAP district.
Below you’ll find the AAP Medical Student members who are currently serving two-year terms and representing their peers on the 2012-2013 AAP Medical Student Subcommittee of the AAP Section on Medical Students, Residents, and Fellowship Trainees.Click here
