History

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. AMSA members are medical students, premedical students, interns, residents and practicing physicians. Founded in 1950, AMSA continues its commitment to improving medical training and the nation’s health.

How is AMSA different from other organizations? When you join AMSA, you become part of a vital force of future physicians who believe that patients and health professionals are partners in the management of health care and that access to high-quality health care is a right and not a privilege. At AMSA, activism is a way of life. Student idealism is transformed into meaningful public service, innovation and institutional change.

Motivation

As a pre-medical chapter, our main goal at Texas A&M is to guide members through the difficult and confusing years as a pre-med undergraduate. We strive to ensure that members are fully informed about medical school pre-requisites, the admissions timeline, and countless other topics that a pre-med student should know. In addition to the various resources offered by AMSA National, our members are introduced to professionals in the medical field (practicing physicians, medical school professors, researchers, etc.) during our general meetings. In offering all of these resources to our members, we hope to contribute to their development as well-rounded medical school applicants, and future physicians.
