AMSA Medical Students

When you join AMSA, you become part of a vital force of future physicians who believe that health professionals and patients are partners in the management and maintenance of health, and that access to high-quality health care is a right and not a privilege. At AMSA, activism is a way of life. Student idealism is transformed into meaningful public service, innovation and institutional change.

At the local level, AMSA chapters serve as unifying groups and resources for students interested in medical education and practice, participation in the local community, and enhancement of their medical school experience. At the national level, medical student members participate in:

AMSA provides a great variety of membership benefits and opportunities to all its members. The major benefit of AMSA membership is your inherent (and hopefully active) contribution to our collective voice and to the improvement of worldwide medical education and patient care.

We hope you will join us.

Itʼs also a time to hone your professional development skills. As you approach USMLE STEP 2, COMLEX the Match and career options (e.g. dual-degree programs, fellowships) the decision-making process can be challenging, so we invite you to connect with AMSA so that youʼll stay inspired. Also available, watch our On the Wards video series.
