ABOUT getMEDucated

   As a summer intern with the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) in 2011, Maggie Berrigan, a second year student at the University of Virginia, developed a project under the guidance of the AMSA fellows designed to provide premedical students with an easily accessible online resource containing pertinent information both about the history and future of medical education in America. With the goal of sharing helpful information with her fellow undergraduate students with plans to apply to medical school, getMEDucated was created to provide these students with the historical context needed to build a foundation of understanding and to inform them about the continuous innovation and opportunities available in medical education.
