     AMSA Action Committee Application     AMSA August Mass Meeting Agenda



Our Mission Statement:
The American Medical Student Association is committed to improving health care and healthcare delivery to all people; promoting active improvement in medical education; involving its members in the social, moral and ethical obligations of the profession of medicine; assisting in the improvement and understanding of world health problems; contributing to the welfare of medical students, interns, residents and post-MD/DO trainees; and advancing the profession of medicine.

Welcome! AMSA is the organization that will allow you to hold on to the ideals that brought you to medicine. With over 68,000 members and 1,700 in Michigan alone, as a national organization, AMSA is the largest and oldest independent organization of medical students. It gains its strength by giving power to medical students to take action and create change about issues that they care about. It's the presence of visionary medical students and our energy that makes AMSA such a powerful organization.

The Wayne State University AMSA chapter sponsors many of our own events in addition to those offered by the National organization. Our Action Committees are actively involved in education and healthcare on a local and global level, and organize events ranging from Primary Care Week, to initiating a local project art exhibit, People of Detroit, a Living Project, that has become nationally known about, which uses photography to increase awareness about health disparities people in Detroit face. This year we are working on the Faces of America Documentary Project.
