AMSA International

Asian Medical Students' Association

Asian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) International is a peak representative organization 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 organization. The member nations increased gradually as the founding members of AMSA inspired neighboring countries with its admirable vision.

Today, AMSA International has grown into a dynamic student-led, not-for-profit, non-political organization. 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-organizational collaborations of academic, sociocultural and public health coverage, not to forget the exchange projects that have managed to foster trans-continental long-lasting friendships.




We promote scientific and medical activities to increase and expand our knowledge whilst training to become the medical professionals of the future.

As medical students, we are concerned for the community around us and endeavour to do things for the benefit and improvement of our fellow citizens.

As future doctors, we aim to build and maintain a good relationship among our colleagues of the Asia-Pacific and beyond.
