SInce our inception in 1950, AMSA has been guided by a clear mission — one centered on the voice and leadership of our members. It empowers medical students, the next generation of physicians, to lead, advocate and shape policies squarely focused on justice, equity and access. AMSA is governed by a Constitution, guided by student leaders and powered by members.

“We believe that access to quality healthcare is a right, not a privilege.”
