American Medical Student Association (AMSA)

Academic, Service

The American Medical Student Association is the country's largest medical student-run organization.

Focusing on patient advocacy, improving health care here and abroad, and providing additional educational opportunities, AMSA offers a wide variety of activities for every type of activist. Locally, our chapter is involved in a number of community service activities, including the Delonis Center homeless clinic, where M1 and M2 students volunteer and help to perform physicals, take histories and observe patient-physician interaction. Regionally and nationally, we lobby for change to improve the lives of our current and future patients - this is an especially important and exciting time to do so. AMSA is looking for motivated M1s to help in every area, and there are numerous leadership opportunities as well! If you're looking for a place to work on or create projects that address important health issues or to become involved with legislative action and lobbying, AMSA is the place for you.
