I have been a member of IAMSE for over ten years and have participated in most of the meetings since that time. IAMSE is one of the few professional organizations that crosses many disciplines and health science professions. During my time as an IAMSE member, I have had the opportunity to network with colleagues around the world who have similar professional goals and interests and grow professionally through consultation and collaboration with the diverse IAMSE membership. When my home institution began the process of restructuring and further integrating our preclinical curriculum in 2008, IAMSE was one of my most valuable sources for consultation, “best practices” information, and cutting edge ideas. Most importantly, the friends I have made though IAMSE keep me excited to return to the meeting each year. I feel like I have found a wonderful professional home, and each meeting is like a reunion!
