Chairperson’s Address

Dear People of Tomorrow,

It is the 35th anniversary of AMSA International and I am honoured to be elected as the Overall Chairperson of AMSA International Tenure 2020/2021.

For decades, AMSA has committed to be an inspiring nest for knowledge cultivation, a prestigious home for momentous actions and a strong network for abiding friendships. I myself have experienced them all. The sweet nature of AMSA has driven me to contribute and serve in AMSA locally, nationally and internationally.

Being able to lead medical students across Asia-Pacific and beyond is the greatest gift of 2020. It became better when I got to know my brilliant crew - the fresh and enthusiastic amazing souls. I am so blessed and grateful for them.

Unequivocally, the year 2020 is difficult for many with the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Executive Committee has pledged to overcome the uncertainties at stake for each of our members from 30 different chapters (2020). This tenure, we aim to empower each of our members with new extensive heights through Knowledge, Action and Friendship. AMSA will be born anew with an established identity and branding.

The members of AMSA International serve as the foundation and pillar of AMSA. We are very blessed for each of your presence. Your enthusiasm and passion have inspired us to bring AMSA to greater heights. Therefore, I hereby AMSA International Tenure 2020/2021, promise to lead AMSA and her members to extensive heights this tenure.

Together, we overcome the pandemic; Together, for a greater AMSA.

If you are interested in being a partner of AMSA or embarking on an AMSA-ful journey with us, feel free to reach out to me (chair@amsa-international) or Jun ( For further contact details, please refer to the list of email addresses under the Contact Us tab of our website.
