Zeroing in on critical, timely issues that matter to tomorrow’s physicians.
Every year, AMSA zeros in on strategic priorities that are critical to physician education — issues that are often not being addressed in medical school.
From here, we devise innovative educational experiences that give students first-hand experience, context and opportunities to connect with experts and innovators. Immersive scholars programs, community projects, leadership and advocacy training from experts — and beyond.
We do this by partnering with inspired organizations and donors, like you.
Our decades-long commitment to helping remove barriers that prevent the equitable experience of health care for all continues today.
Health technology and digital health present a promising new pathway to address health inequity. We are ensuring future physicians are prepared.
The need to ensure that the US continues to train enough physicians fully prepared to provide abortion care to their patients is more urgent than it’s been in decades. Our work in this area is essential.
Gender + Sexuality
Dismantling the barriers of sexism and heterosexism within the health care establishment is essential to achieving better health outcomes for women, intersex people and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.
Soaring opioid addiction, climate change, heart disease. Physician involvement in issues like these is essential to improving the health of millions.
Medical Education Reform
From incorporating environmental health as a component of medical school curricula to addressing the mental health of students, change in medical schools, according to many students, is long overdue.
