AMSA’s Action Committees represent areas the Association feels all physicians-in-training should value as vital in becoming a socially responsible physician and healer. They promote their particular 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.
The Chair of each Action Committee is responsible for directing the activities of their committee and overseeing the work of the committee coordinators. Each of the Chairs will select project coordinators following the Annual Convention to work on specific projects deemed important by that Action Committee.
Applicants for Action Committee Chair positions must be a medical student enrolled in a medical school as of May 1, 2021 and must be in good standing with their school. A letter of good standing from the applicant’s medical school is required.
