Link & Resource Reference Guidelines
These guidelines apply to all links and resource references suggested for inclusion on AMSA’s public website.
- Official governing organizations representing the health professions, health professional schools, advising, etc.
- Organizations, resources, publications, etc. affiliated with or produced by accredited university systems
- Long-standing, recognized, and respected non-profits with some alignment or intersection with AMSA's mission and strategic priorities
- Student-created resources that have been developed either in association with an AMSA project or which were developed in association with a university-supported project, pending internal review if the resource has not already been peer-reviewed.
- Resources produced by for-profit companies
- Organizations or resources that are "stand alone," especially if they are new and haven't been peer reviewed, tested or endorsed by a more established or governing organization
- Resources that may be popular among students but distrusted by educators, advisors or administrators
Require Further Investigation
- Organizations and resources representing "non-traditional" care modalities, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), and other health care practices that are on the edge of Evidence-Based Medicine standards. Programs or services affiliated with or produced by a university system, backed by evidence, peer-reviewed, etc. should be considered with higher regard than those that do not have this level of backing.
