Medical students brimming with ideas; graduates experiencing residencies; physicians running practices—AMSA members bring impassioned perspectives to share; experience to offer; and ideas to activate. It is here, together, where change is realized—where issues are explored, policies are reimagined and friends are made—for life. That’s why we’re often called fAMSA. We’re family. A lifelong one. 

No matter where a member is on their medical journey, AMSA offers opportunities to lead, grow and influence. Check out our Why AMSA? page to learn how we do this. 

We’re on a mission—and we’ve got work to do. Join us!
