AMSA - American Medical Student Association

AMSA - American Medical Student Association The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) fosters a community of future physicians through education and advocacy.
Today, the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) is a student-governed, national organization committed to representing the concerns of physicians-in-training. With a membership of more than 40,000 medical students, premedical students, interns, residents and practicing physicians from across the country, 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. AMSA has represented the voice of physicians-in-training in their efforts to best serve the public. In 2007, AMSA leaders selected the following four strategic priorities to focus the activism of its membership. AMSA is dedicated to allocating time, energy and resources toward fulfilling our goals within these priorities: Quality, Affordable Health Care for All; Global Health Equity; Enriching Medicine Through Diversity; and Professional Integrity, Development and Student Well-Being.

Congress Allocates $25M for Gun Violence Research in Historic Win for Gun Safety

🎤Isaiah Cochran, MD, national president of the American Medical Student Association:

“The American Medical Student Association was elated to learn that Congress included funding for research into our country’s epidemic of gun violence for the first time in over 20 years. As medical students we are taught that to solve a problem we must first understand it. As a community of future physicians, we recognize the importance of evidence-based solutions in counteracting this public health crisis. AMSA applauds Congress for taking this important first step towards protecting families and communities from preventable firearm injuries.”

Coming at the end of a violent 2019, funding is the first such investment in more than two decades Former …

Thanks to Rep. Dwight Evans for visiting our chapter Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine last week! He discussed the future of primary care & building the primary care workforce with AMSA students.

#NationalPrimaryCareWeek #NPCW2019 #AMSApower #AMSApower

This past weekend, I participated in the “Expanding the Healthcare Workforce in Philadelphia” event at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. I talked with medical students about priorities I support such as funding for community health centers, adding 1,000+ residency positions for addiction centers to deal with the heroin and opioid crisis, and improving Philadelphia’s overall health-care situation.

🍃According to the Center for International Environmental Law, over 99% of plastic comes from fossil fuels, like oil, gas, and coal. And Its toxic legacy never really ends, it just circles back into our body via the air we breathe, food we eat, and water we drink.
