We’re the American Medical Student Association — we exist to prepare, train and embolden medical students to become leaders. Advocates for quality and affordable health care for all. Ushers of a better, more inclusive, equitable future.
With over 30,000 members from across the globe, we’re the largest and oldest independent association of physicians-in-training in the United States. For over seven decades, we’ve armed students with the training and experience to lead, use their voice and challenge the status quo.
For decades, our members have asked the question: what needs to change to improve and advance healthcare/medicine for all? We have the audacity, again and again, to create programming and learning opportunities that seek to answer this question — filling gaps that often exist in medical school training. As believers in progress, not just in medical science but in growing our understanding of how environmental and social determinants, for instance, impact health, AMSA has continued to evolve and respond to the times.
AMSA members go on to influence positive change in the world — going far beyond drugs and diagnoses. Erik Whitaker, Leana Wen, and Kavita Patel — for example — are a few AMSA alumni.
