Premedical Chapter -
The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) is the oldest and largest independent association of physicians-in-training in the United States. Today, AMSA represents more than 41,000 medical students, premedical students, interns, residents, and practicing physicians.
When you join AMSA, you become part of a vital force of future physicians who believe in partnership between patients and health professionals and the human right to quality healthcare. At AMSA, activism is a way of life. Student idealism is transformed into meaningful public service, innovation and institutional change.
The UW-Madison Premedical Chapter of AMSA is committed to preparing members for the rigors of medical school. To do this, we connect students with valuable experiences, including shadowing opportunities, service trips, and the annual Midwest Aspiring Physician's Conference (MAP). We also strive to prepare members to be physician advocates for patients historically underserved in our healthcare system. Through our connection with National AMSA, we educate members on the disparities that exist in healthcare today and spread awareness for relevant policies that address them.
