About Us

The Asian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) International is a peak representative organisation for medical students from across Asia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond. We gather future healers from 17 Full Members, 2 Associate Members and 8 Observer Members, to be academically-competent, initiative-driven, and socially ethical.

Asian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) International is a peak representative organisation for medical students from across Asia, the Asia-Pacific, and beyond. AMSA has trained future doctors-to-be to share knowledge, undertake activities and social services and create international friendships.

AMSA International was officially founded at the sixth Asian Medical Students’ Conference (AMSC), which was held at Manila, the Philippines in 1985. Enthusiastic AMSA members from nine different nations – Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand, gathered at the conference and founded the prestigious international organisation. The member nations increased gradually as the founding members of AMSA inspired neighbouring countries with its admirable vision.

Today, AMSA International has grown into a dynamic student-led, not-for-profit, non-political organisation. With members and friends spanning the globe, AMSA International has branched and introduced many exciting subsidiaries and
activities to be undertaken regionally and nationally within the member nations. With our amazing partners and sponsors, we are able to have inter-organisational collaborations of academic, sociocultural and public health coverage, not to forget the exchange projects that have managed to foster trans-continental long-lasting friendships.

Dear People of Tomorrow,

It is the 37th anniversary of AMSA International, and I am honored to be elected as Overall Chairperson of AMSA International Tenure 2022/2023.

First of all, I would like to deliver my gratitude to all Regional Chairpersons for entrusting the team. The Executive Committee Tenure 2022/2023 are comprised of 19 members from Taiwan, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, and Kyrgyzstan.

Ever since the COVID-19 outbreak, it has been the worst of times yet the best of times.

Travel restriction and border controls gave us no choice but to undergo Force Majeure. However, AMSA International managed to divert the focus from biannual conferences to digital transformation. A great variety of online events—masterclasses, seedership programs, and even organisational rebranding all initiated in the seemingly hopeless year. As the pandemic gradually mitigates, AMSA International is ready to re-evaluate the feasibility of physical activities, while ameliorating the quality and quantity of online ones.

For decades, AMSA International has been a platform not only horizontally connecting medical students worldwide, but also vertically linking them to prominent scholars, activists, and their doctor counterparts. Undoubtedly, AMSA International is an incubator where doctor-to-be acquire knowledge and soft skills, take actions for a sustainable future, and forge life-long friendships cross-culturally. Meanwhile, AMSA International is an accelerator to empower youth, to visualize superb ideas, and to shape the world around us collectively.  Hence, as Overall Chairperson Tenure 2022/2023, I promise to lead the organisation to new heights.

We appreciate every each of your presence since active participation of general member is the fundamental of every organisation. If you are interested in partnering with AMSA or embarking on an AMSA-mazing journey, feel free to drop a message to me (chair@amsa-international.org).

Cordially,
