Reflections from 2016 attendees:
“LEAPS is a weeklong conference to learn more about Integrative Medicine and meet medical students from around the country. I found LEAPS to be the perfect addition to our education here at Feinberg— the conference was a time of reflection, education, and connection with like-minded peers. I highly recommend LEAPS to anyone who is interested in prevention and exploring health and wellness from other traditions.”
"LEAPS was a fantastic experience that allowed me to cultivate my passion for Integrative Medicine. I gained a new perspective and learned alongside talented students from all over the country at the beautiful San Luis Rey Mission.”
II. HEART IM
The Humanistic Elective in Activism, Reflective Transformation, and Integrative Medicine (HEART-IM) is a program of the AMSA (American Medical Students Association) provides twenty-five (25) fourth-year medical students with a unique and rewarding way to conclude their medical school careers and prepare for their future work as healer-physicians. Applicants should have a strong interest in exploring the path of healing within the modern world and medical system. The month-long elective is structured as a group exploration of what it means to be a healer and how we can each work to embody it as we progress in our careers.
