Join AMSA’s Vitality Circle

There’s nothing like the feeling of empowerment – when others tell you and teach you that you can make a difference and create the kind of health care system and world that you want to live in. AMSA has a 62-year history of medical student activism and providing a robust training environment for influential future physician leaders. One of the endearing and admirable characteristics of our thousands of members is their idealism and refusal to accept the status quo if they believe there is a better way to help, heal and prevent illness and disease. AMSA holds the distinction as the largest independent student-governed organization in the world. We have successfully and proudly supported, influenced, taught and created close networks of the best and the brightest medical students over all of these years, and our members rely on us to continue this important work. You are invited to support AMSA in our on-going quest to inspire a community of future physicians through education and advocacy. Please donate to AMSA and join us as a contributor to AMSA’s Vitality which will help ensure that our strong work persists. We need your support. Our students are so very deserving.

The purpose of the AMSA Foundation is to support the activities of the American Medical Student Association including education and career development, research projects and innovative community impact programs aligned with the strategic priorities of the organization.

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. With a membership of more than 35,000 medical students, premedical students, interns, residents and practicing physicians from across the country, AMSA continues its commitment to improving medical training and the nation's health.

Making a Difference!

"Nothing prepared me better for my career than my experiences in AMSA. My summer in the Appalachian Student Health Project was the most transformative experience in my becoming a physician."
