The Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) is the peak representative body for Australian medical students.
AMSA is a vibrant student-run organisation that represents, informs and connects all of Australia’s medical students.
Hundreds of medical student volunteers work together to run our professional-standard events, advocacy campaigns, special interest groups, community and wellbeing initiatives, projects and publications.
The AMSA represents you on the important issues that affect you now while at university, and during your future career in medicine. We lobby on behalf of our student members on funding for medical school places, intern and specialty training positions, and ensure the adequate provision of work and training places for graduating students.
