Welcome to AMSA Global Health!
As the largest sub-committee of the Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA), AMSA Global Health provides a hub of education, inspiration as well as an unparalleled opportunity to cultivate students’ passion for social justice. We not only connect and represent over 17,000 medical students from every single Australian medical school, but also challenge and empower our members to make a real impact on the world around them.
In recent years, the term ‘global health’ has grown in popularity and visibility both within the medical community and beyond. The increasing interest in health issues that transcend national borders demonstrates a strong commitment to social justice by medical students. We are exceptionally excited that future health professionals continue to take a stand and raise awareness about important areas of global health inequity with us.
Whether it’s advocacy through our many Global Health projects, or simply in upskilling our members through regular training and opportunities, whatever it is that takes your fancy, you’ll find a home in AMSA Global Health. We look forward to meeting you all this year and learning about global health together.
Chair of AMSA Global Health
