Our focus

Conferences, Student exchange programs, community services, and much more
AMSC

The Asian Medical Students’ Conference is an annual conference that involves the participation of hundreds of medical students from chapters around the Asia-Pacific region. This event allows medical students to congregate, discuss and present their projects and research on a predertermined theme of the year. Delegates can also experience different traditions and customs through the organised cultural events. Finally, students will have the opportunity to network and build lifelong friendships with future doctors across Asia, regardless of nationality, ethnicity or race.

EAMSC

The East Asian Medical Students’ Conference is an annual conference hosted by various cities around East Asia. It allows delegates from all AMSA-International chapters to exchange ideas, knowledge and cultures. The EAMSC continues to inspire medical students to analyse global health issues more closely and to utilise the role of medical students in the promotion of public health. It challenges students to think beyond what is learnt at university through various academic and cultural activities which explore a nominated conference theme.

AMSEP

The Asian Medical Students’ Exchange Program (AMSEP) creates opportunities for international preclinical and clinical exchanges between AMSA International chapters. Students will learn and experience the local culture, social aspects, and the healthcare systems in various settings. Students will develop life-long friendships with medical students from around the globe, which enables them to attain further clinical and/or cultural experience in the future.

PCP

The post-conference project (PCP) is a continuation of the student conference. It aims to make an impact on the wider community by disseminating the knowledge gained from the conference through different channels, and engaging with students of various disciplines. The PCP may be in the forms of workshops, seminars, presentations, or community service.

About US

Our mission: Knowledge, Friendship, Action

AMSA International is the peak representative organisation for medical students from the Asia, Pacific and Oceanic regions. It could be considered a ‘sister organisation’ to the European Medical Students’ Association. Comprised of 13 Member Chapters, 8 Observer Chapters and 2 Associate Nations – of which Australia is a founding Member Chapter – it is intended to facilitate international and transcontinental exchange of medical research, initiative and camaraderie. With an extensive global network, AMSA International 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 organisations.

The AIA is actively engaged in all of these initiatives. The Australian chapter also undertakes and promotes scientific research of internationally-acclaimed calibre, as well as public health posters and film clips, at the annual Asian Medical Students’ Conference (AMSC) and East Asian Medical Students’ Conference (EAMSC). These conferences are a unique opportunity for medical students to undertake and present research on the international stage, get involved in a public health campaigning on the global level, sightsee around a foreign country, and make lasting friendships with our international medical student colleagues and organisations including WHO and ASEAN. An immersive social program, cultural performances and cultural exchange lead to a truly memorable and heart-warming experience for all delegates. Furthermore, delegates then have the opportunity to get published, present their research or distribute their public health poster or film clip throughout Australia after the conference.
