Asian Medical Students Association

Training doctors from 13 Member Chapters, 8 Observer Chapters and 2 Associate Nations combine to share knowledge, undertake activities and social services and create international and trans-continental friendships.

AMSA was officially founded in Manilla, Philippines in 1985 and from this day has been an active, dynamic and exciting student-led, not-for-profit, non-political organisation.

Today, with members and friends spanning the globe AMSA has an active student-exchange program, regularly undertakes national and regional projects, provides humanitarian assistance at times of need, produces quarterly student publications and liaises with the World Health Organisation, the Association of Medical Doctors of Asia and many other international and regional medical student organisations.

Since it was first established in 1979 and the first conference was held in Mahidol University of Thailand the Asian Medical Students’ Conferences have been a key focus for the organisation. Now held biannually in January/February and July/August these events see over 700 students from across the world combine to learn from each other, teach their fellow peers and develop lasting friendships.
