Thank you for your interest in serving on the Medical Students for Choice Board of Directors!
For 2018-2019, the MSFC Board will be recruiting at-large board members (both student and non-student members), in addition to a new President-Elect. Candidates for President-Elect who are not selected will be considered for at-large board membership, if interested.
Medical Students for Choice is strongly committed to diversity within its organization and especially welcomes applications from persons of color, LGBTQ+ persons, persons with disabilities, and others who may contribute to further diversification of ideas and to further represent MSFC’s broader constituency and future patients.
We encourage first-year medical students to apply for Board membership, and also welcome applications from candidates who were not selected for Board membership in prior years.
Role and Responsibilities
At-large members of the Board of Directors are elected to serve terms of up to three years (or until graduation, for medical student Board members). The position of President-Elect is a three-year role to serve as President-Elect, President, and Past-President. All Board roles require substantial responsibility and accountability to the organization and require regular conference calls and three in-person meetings per year. For the role of President-Elect, daily emails, weekly conference calls, and additional in-person meetings are required.
General Membership: At-large membership on the Board of Directors is open to both medical students and non-students who are passionate about MSFC’s mission of creating future abortion providers and pro-choice physicians.
President-Elect: The role of President-Elect is only open to medical students. The year as President-Elect is best suited for the penultimate year of medical school, so that the President role is served during the student’s final year (or during a gap/research year). We generally recommend that current applicants be presently in their antepenultimate year.
General Board membership:
After the application review, selected applicants for general Board membership will be interviewed by telephone/video interviews by two members of the Board’s Nominating Committee. Final selection to the Board of Directors will occur following a meeting of the full Board in the Spring.
In order to be considered for general Board membership. Please complete Part One of the application below. Part One also includes a required reference request and an optional demographics survey.
President-Elect: Candidates for the position of President-Elect will also be interviewed by telephone/video with two members of the Board’s Nominating Committee. They will be interviewed by at least one of the current President-Elect, President, and Past President. Candidates for President-Elect advancing past telephone/video interviews will be invited for a final round of interviews in person with the entire Nominating Committee. Candidates for President-Elect who are not ultimately selected for the position may be considered for general Board membership if interested.
In order to be considered for the President-Elect position, please complete Part One and Part Two of the application below. Since the President-Elect is an active model member of the Board of Directors as well as a Board leader, Part One addresses Board service and responsibilities. It also includes a required reference request and an optional demographics survey. Part Two more specifically addresses the President-Elect role.
