L.E.A.D.S. Medical Student Program (Lead, Engage, Advocate, Develop, Serve)

The MAG MSS developed the L.E.A.D.S. Program to help medical students in the state to become more active in organized medicine and advocacy. This program is designed to achieve this without creating additional financial burdens or distractions from their education or training.

L.E.A.D.S. Program participants learn skills and participate in experiences that prepare them to become advocates and leaders for the next generation of the medical profession while they also bolster their resumes, expand their peer and professional networks, and become better equipped to successfully transition into practice.

The L.E.A.D.S. Program is open to any MAG member medical student who attends an accredited medical school in Georgia. Click to complete the online L.E.A.D.S.
