Application Deadlines & Electoral Procedures

All elected national leaders are expected and fully funded to attend AMSA’s Building on Foundations National Leadership Meeting (May 18-21, 2017) at AMSA Headquarters in Sterling, VA.

AMSA’s Annual Convention offers each member the chance to become more involved in the organization. Unlike any other medical student organization, AMSA is run entirely by physicians-in-training.

AMSA depends on dedicated student leaders to devote their extracurricular time and energy on their responsibilities as national leaders. Each leadership position varies greatly with respect to responsibility, time commitment and previous experience required. However, each requires a good working knowledge of our organization, dedication and excitement for AMSA.

The following briefly describe the positions available, as well as the election and application process for each position. Candidates should review our website to gain a working knowledge of our organization and should also feel free to contact the person who currently holds the position in which you are interested for more information. AMSA is your organization and we encourage you to be involved at whatever level is best for you.

For more information, contact AMSA’s Vice President for Internal Affairs at or AMSA’s National Secretary at
