What is AMSEP?

AMSEP is one of AMSA programs which establishes an exchange program between students of different AMSA chapters since 2003. In 2015, our students visited Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Thailand.

What is the vision of AMSEP?

AMSEP creates opportunities for international preclinical and clinical exchanges between AMSA International chapters. The program schedule depends on the host and exchange students; accommodating to the aspirations of incoming students. Participating students not only learn about the Australian healthcare and medical education system, they also have a great chance to experience the cultural aspects of Australia in various settings. They are also encouraged to engage in social service activities, which may include visiting patients or local communities. Most importantly, the students are given the opportunity to develop long-lasting international friendship with the people they meet during the exchange program. In the end, AMSEP serves to fulfill the vision of AMSA International: Knowledge, Action, and Friendship.

Students will develop life-long friendships with medical students from around the globe. You will be able to visit your new friends (either with our AMSEP or self-arranged elective placements) for another clinical and/or cultural experience. We firmly believe that the all students will thoroughly enjoy this exciting program.
