AMSA India represents the interests of Indian medical students in all the spheres of our society and thus provides an excellent platform for professional as well as personal growth.
Our organizational mission is knowledge, action and friendship. Since our inception in July'11, AMSA India has been a flourishing organization and a full Member of AMSA International.
AMSA promotes scientific and medical activities to expand our knowledge, through National (AMSA-Con) & International conferences like East Asian Medical Students' Conference (EAMSC), AMSC (Asian Medical Students Conference).
AMSA works for the community around and endeavors to do things for the benefit and improvement of fellow citizens, through Public Health & Research Department's NWG's (National Working groups) which are designed around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) laid down by the United Nations(UN).
With the aim to maintain good relations with other colleagues of the Asia-Pacific and beyond through student exchange programs under AMSEP (Asian Medical Students Exchange Program), AMSEP India successfully organized four virtual student exchange programs with AMSA chapters in Malaysia, Philippines, Nigeria & Indonesia, despite the pandemic.
Going to the grass-root level, the activities conducted by the College Heads forms the core of AMSA. What makes us different from other medical student organizations is the freedom that AMSA gives its members to work on areas they genuinely want to make an impact & have always been supportive of members to come up and plan events and take positions of leadership in the organization in various departments of AMSA.
The year 2020, was the year for exponential growth for AMSA, with two of its major wings getting established - PHRD (Public Health & Research Development) & MERSA (Medicos' Education & Research Society) & collaborations with lead Indian educational institutes like PrepLadder, Marrow, DBMCI & international premier institutes like MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Lecturio, Kaplan, Amboss, SketchyMedical, Body Interact & VisualDx, Scholastic Expeditions, Ace MD & Wolters Kluwer.
