About AMSA
The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) is the oldest and largest independent association of physicians-in-training in the United States. Founded in 1950 to provide medical students a chance to participate in organized medicine, AMSA began under the auspices of the American Medical Association. Starting in 1960, the association refocused its energies on the problems of the medically underserved, inequities in our health-care system and related issues in medical education. Since 1968, AMSA has been a fully independent student organization. Today, AMSA is a student-governed, national organization committed to representing the concern of physicians-in-training. With a membership of nearly 70,000 medical students, pre-medical students, interns and residents from a cross the country and residing at nearly every medical school in the United States, AMSA continues its commitment to improving medical training and the nation's health.
