American Medical Student Association (AMSA)

AMSA is the largest pre-medical organization in the country. Our aim is to provide a community of support for students interested in the medical field. AMSA is a great way to gain community service experience, clinical experience, leadership skills, and effective networking with other students to get help with the MCAT and exchange study materials. All AMSA members will have access to all AMSA records and references when applying to medical school, participate in the new Community Service Program started with the Dean of the College of Natural Sciences, and much more. All activities and events in AMSA are aimed at strengthening your application to medical school. For more information, please e-mail:
