AMSA is the oldest and largest independent association of physicians-in-training in the United States. AMSA’s four official activism aspirations include: (1) Quality, affordable healthcare for all; (2) Global health equity; (3) Enriching medicine through diversity; and (4) Professional integrity, development, and student well-being. 


Here at the DGSOM chapter of AMSA, we aim to create a community of future physicians committed to advocacy and social responsibility by:

  • Supporting student-led advocacy initatives on and off campus
  • Raising awareness for healthcare policy issues through informational events and advocacy projects
  • Collaborating with other student organizations on these projects
  • Organizing events, such as voter registration drives and legislative visits, to promote civic responsibility among our peers and offer our members opportunities for leadership development
  • Promoting active collaboration with the AMSA National organization through annual convention attendance and involvement in AMSA National campaigns
