Chapter Officers are the pulmonary system of AMSA:
a mighty force of critical information transmitters, leaders who inspire action,
and the nucleus of AMSA-activity on campuses across the globe.
It is you, impassioned Chapter Officers, that makes AMSA go around.
Yours is a critical role—and a fun, deeply rewarding one.
You will soon be fluent in All Things AMSA—ready to help serve as a proud representative and leader.
AMSA is an independent, student-led, global organization that exists to cultivate, inspire and inform medical students to realize meaningful change in healthcare. Learn more here.
Think of AMSA as an incubator for your career. It’s where you learn to advocate for issues you feel strongly about; to become a leader; find your medical niche; meet like-minded peers and physicians — things that medical schools may not offer. We make this happen through three core offerings: Advocacy, Education and Networking. Learn more here.
Oh so many reasons. To be part of a truly amazing culture of impassioned game-changers. To network with physicians and influencers. To learn to lead. To survive medical school. Explore our Why AMSA? Page to get the full jist. You can access our full brochure here in PDF, too, for reading and sharing.
For over seven decades, AMSA has been firmly committed to improving healthcare through inspired, informed advocacy and full-throated activism. The results are nothing short of profound. Check out a few highlights here.
A healthy chapter means that you’re helping to drive on shared goals—that you’re furthering AMSA’s work to make change, influence health care and support your members.
Throughout the school year, we offer health-checks; assessing the wellness of your chapter, to see how you’re faring, and see how we can help.
