AMPAC Campaign School

April 13-17, 2016

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 augment the instruction they receive during the day with nightly 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.  During the five days, 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.

Campaigning is a family affair, so we encourage physician spouse attendance as well. Please apply here.
