In support of the 2022 IAMSE annual meeting theme, “Healthcare Educators, Learners, and Providers: Building the Future Together,” the program committee elected to represent the viewpoints of current learners during a student plenary session delivered by osteopathic and allopathic medical students from the Netherlands and the United States. Students were invited to discuss their perspectives during the session titled “What an inclusive future in the medical profession looks like to us.” The session was to allow conference attendees to engage and gain insight into learner perspectives on how best to prepare students for future healthcare environments. Each student representative on the plenary panel delivered a 10-min presentation outlining their thoughts about the future of health profession education, followed by a question and answer session from the audience.
