Adam Thompson-Harvey, MD

Resident, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Medical College of Wisconsin

Dr. Adam Thompson-Harvey is a third-year resident in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin. He is an ORR representative for the Society of University Otolaryngologists-Head and Neck Surgeons (SUO) and serves as a member of the ORR administrative board. His is also a co-lead for the ORR workgroup on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as well as ORR Alumni Relations. He is passionate about eliminating disparities in patient care and motivating others’ success in medicine; he looks forward to the on-going change to the status quo in academic medicine. Adam first became involved in the AAMC six years ago as a medical student in the Organization of Student Representatives (OSR). Nowhere was he able to not only have his voice heard as a black male in medicine on a national stage but also lead discussion round tables on student wellness with many UME and GME decision-makers.  He spearheaded the AAMC webinar on Technology in Medicine not only out of an interest to explore platforms outside traditional healthcare but to identify ways to may better serve marginalized communities.  As a Group on Information Resources (GIR) liaison, his time spent working on an environmental survey involving use of technology in academic medicine helped confirmed that the next generation of physicians learns medicine in a radically different way than most of our attendings. Even more importantly, as a former medical school admissions committee member and current residency program interviewer, he has cherished attending the AAMC Minority Student Fair for several years to encourage dissuaded pre-med students who believe the AAMC numbers they encounter indicate that they are “missing the mark” or that “only ‘X%’ of them will achieve their dream of a career in medicine.
