For years, AMSA's action committee leaders have referred to their groups as the heart and soul of AMSA. And in many ways they are. While the Board of Trustees governs the organization, the action committees produce ideas and projects. AMSA's ten committees represent areas the Association feels all medical students should value as vital in becoming a socially responsible physician/healer. They promote these areas of interest and associated projects to AMSA members on national, regional and local levels and are integral in helping AMSA maintain its dynamic view of medicine amidst tremendous and rapid change. They are also a frontline for the association's dedication to redefining the culture and activities of medicine.
Interest Groups (IGs) are collections of AMSA members who share a similar interest. Find out more about these groups here, or visit their online communities on Inspiration Exchange.
In addition to AMSA's committees and interest groups, we have 3 main focus areas, or campaigns, that we focus heavily on throughout the year. We invite you to learn more and get involved locally.
