IAMSE – Featured Member: Rick Vari, IAMSE President

I am honored to serve as the next President of IAMSE, my medical educational family! I would like to personally thank Veronica Michaelsen for her leadership as president for the past two years and recognize three mentors in IAMSE who have provided me with their wisdom, support and encouragement: Adi Haramati, Giulia Bonaminio, and Amy Wilson-Delfosse. Thank You.

I am excited to help facilitate and lead the Board of Directors and the many committee chairs and membership into an exciting future as we expand our connectivity to other health sciences educators from around the globe. We will work diligently together to not only provide outstanding programming, innovative educational opportunities and exciting and interesting meeting venues; but to explore new ways to expand the impact of IAMSE on health sciences education. The membership of our association, growing across multiple professions, is full of excitement and loaded with new ideas. We have a lot of momentum. We need to seize this opportunity to reach new heights. That will take teamwork and leadership, enthusiasm and hard work. Let’s get to it!
