LMSA Instruction, Support, Training & Orientation Session (LISTOS)
August 20 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT
Dear LMSA Advisors,
Welcome to the beginning of the 2021-22 academic year! Thank you for serving as an advisor to our LMSA Chapter at your institution and/or to our LMSA Regional and National Leadership Teams. Your guidance helps to ensure that our organization flourishes on the chapter, regional and national level and that our members develop, personally and professionally, to serve as the next generation of Hispanic & Latina/o/x leaders.
Part of the vision of the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) is to create unity among medical trainees, faculty advisors, and healthcare professions with the goal of promoting the recruitment, retention, and promotion of Hispanic & Latina/o/x individuals in medicine. As part of this, it is imperative to ensure our advisors are prepared and trained on an annual basis in order to effectively guide future leaders of medicine. In discussing and adopting best practices for advisors, we all move closer to a field in which we are well-represented and valued for our unique contributions to medicine.
One major activity that we hope you will be able to participate in this year is the LMSA Instruction, Support, Training & Orientation Session for Advisors – aptly abbreviated LISTOS. As continuous training, improvement, and growth are necessary for LMSA's success, advisors are required to attend at least one LISTOS event each year to remain in good standing with the organization. LISTOS will take place twice this year: on August 20, 2021 (Fall) and March 4, 2022 (Spring).
This registration form is for the Fall LISTOS event: August 20, 2021, 8:00am – 5:00pm PST. All speakers and participants are asked to register using this form. Members of National Center for LMSA Leadership & Advancement should register with this form and use the promotional code provided to them vial email.
In this session, we will review updates on the following:
- The values, structure, and activities of LMSA National;
- Needs and assets of Hispanic health professions trainees;
- Legal concerns for applicants and matriculants to medical school and residency programs;
- Strategies to publish content on Hispanic health, medical Spanish, and other LMSA-related work;
- Challenges to and best practices for obtaining promotion and tenure; and
- Plans to strengthen LMSA and the FPAC in 2021-22.
CME credits will be provided. More information, including a detailed agenda, will be made available ASAP. As LISTOS is part of the inaugural National Center for LMSA Leadership & Advancement, additional questions may be directed to Donald Rodriguez, National Center Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
