NAAMA NextGen 5th National Summit took place on Saturday October 8th, 2022 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and for the first time, was followed by an elegant students gala. This year’s summit was a huge success, more than 200 students showed up at Michigan League, Ann Arbor. They hosted several prestigious speakers including WSUSOM Dean Wael Sakr, CMUSOM Dean George Kikano, and HFH CCO Dr Adnan Munkarah, who shared their insightful expertise with the students. The event included a research panel session led by Dr Rouba Ali-Fehmi and a medical school admissions panel led by associate director of admission at WSU, Dr Abhinav Krishnan, and assistant director of admissions at UMich, Ms Becky Weeks. Two speed dating mentorship sessions also took place where undergrads got to connect with med students and med students connected with residents for advice.
The event was concluded with presentations of 3 winning research abstracts by students:
