AMPAC Campaign School

AMPAC is excited to announce that the 2024 Campaign School will be returning in-person July 25-28 at the AMA offices in Washington, DC.

Recognized as one of the top programs in the country, this comprehensive program will mold you into a winning political strategist and help you elect friends of medicine. The Campaign School is renowned for its use of a simulated campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives, complete with demographics, voting statistics and candidate biographies.

Participants are broken into campaign “staff” teams and apply what they learn in real life exercises in strategy, vote targeting, social media, paid advertising, and public speaking. Insider tactics are taught by experts from both sides of the political spectrum. These professionals are the experts currently advising campaigns at every level around the country.

Attendees include physicians, spouses of physicians, residents and medical students interested in becoming more involved in politics. Participants range from those attracted to grassroots efforts to those considering becoming a candidate for public office. No matter where you are in the process, you will develop a new understanding of how campaigns are run. As a graduate of the AMPAC program, candidates will rely on you to give them advice on strategy, message, and campaign plans.

Please note the following:

  • Registration fee is $350 for AMA members/$1,000 for non-AMA members. This fee is waived for AMA residents and students; however, space is limited and the AMPAC Board will review and select four participants from the pool of qualified resident and student applicants.

  • Faculty, materials, and all meals during the meeting are covered by the AMA. Participants are responsible for their registration fee, travel to/from Washington, DC and hotel accommodations (AMPAC staff will provide you with a list of nearby hotels within walking distance of the AMA offices).

  • Participants will be required to bring a laptop or Wi-Fi enabled tablet with them. 

Registration for the 2024 Campaign School is now OPEN. Space is limited and the deadline to register is July 1 (or sooner if maximum capacity is reached).
