American Medical Student Association

AMSA at UTHSC is here to enable you, our medical students, to take action in the areas of medicine and policy that are most relevant and meaningful to our community. We hope you will use our resources, connections, and programming on your path of developing as a physician.

In addition to monthly speakers and events related to public health issues in Memphis and beyond, our programming currently includes:

  • Global Health Interest Group
  • Narrative Medicine Journal and Forum
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (LGBTI) Student Support
  • Family Planning and Education

As of this academic year, AMSA membership is FREE to medical students and comes with a number of benefits. As a member of the largest independent association of medical students in the United States, you will be eligible for steep discounts on books, insurance, travel, board test prep materials, and more. To find out more and to register, visit the national AMSA website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
