Coronavirus Update

The 2020 AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event is currently proceeding as scheduled. Because your health and safety are important to us, we continue to communicate with our host venue who in turn is working with local health officials to monitor updates to COVID-19. We’re also following recommendations from the World Health Organization for safely hosting this event. Any changes to this event will be communicated to attendees on this page and via email. You can also review our cancellation policy here.

How it Works

The AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event is a place where candidates and schools meet to interview in-person over a 4-day period. Most candidates (and employers) have a full schedule of interviews while at the event. Your conference badge must be worn at all times.

For Job Candidates

Doctoral students get full access to the AMA Academic Placement Hiring Event with registration for the AMA Summer Academic Conference. During the conference checkout process, make sure to select that you’d like to interview on-site. Candidates will not be able to interview without conference registration even if an employer directly invites you.
