American Medical Student Association (AMSA)


The Rush Medical College Chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) is a group of RMC students who are registered members of AMSA and recognize AMSA as a professional national organization designed to address the concerns of physicians-in-training. Five action committees (Trainee Wellness and Professionalism; Global Health; Health Policy; Culture in Health (REACH); Medical Education) operate under the leadership of two Co-Presidents. Action Committee Chairs organize activities, education, and resources that are available to all RMC students and promote the committee’s passions and goals. Examples include lunch talks with speakers, quarterly REACH Dinners with advisor Dr. David Ansell, lobbying visits, and an annual global health service trip. Additionally, members may attend the national AMSA convention in March and participate in national advocacy efforts.

New AMSA Leadership members are chosen each January, and all M1 students are invited to apply.
