About Us

The American Medical Student Association (AMSA), with a half-
century history of medical student activism, is the oldest and largest
independent association of physicians-in-training in the United States.
Today, AMSA is a student-governed, national organization
committed to representing the concerns of physicians-in-
training. AMSA members are medical students, premedical students,
interns, residents and practicing physicians. Founded in 1950, AMSA
continues its commitment to improving medical training and the
nation’s health.

How is AMSA different from other organizations? When you join
AMSA, you become part of a vital force of future physicians who
believe that patients and health professionals are partners in the
management of health care and that access to high-quality health
care is a right and not a privilege. At AMSA, activism is a way of
life. Student idealism is transformed into meaningful public service,
innovation and institutional change. (http://www.amsa.org)
