At AMSA, we believe it takes more than academic competence to become an effective, compassionate physician. 

You need to learn to listen, lead and organize. To advocate for what you believe in. To have the skills to collaborate and communicate with diverse stakeholders, peers and experts.

This is where AMSA comes in. Find out what leadership role best suits you.
