We engaged medical students with antimicrobial stewardship (AS) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) through patient stories and a panel on AMR advocacy with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Students were surveyed on their perceptions about AS and AMR (response rate = 139 of 166, 84%).
