Vector is the official publication for AMSA Global Health.  Our vision is for medical students to be interested and actively involved in academic writing in global health.




Our mission is to produce a high quality peer-reviewed academic journal that is dedicated to the needs and interests of medical students.  Perhaps more importantly, we aim to provide a platform for medical students to participate in the publication process, and as such, feel empowered to continue sharing their knowledge and opinions in global health through academic writing in the future.



Vector Journal’s primary objectives are to:

  • Be a professional and peer-reviewed academic journal
  • Provide a platform for medical students to participate in academic writing
  • Empower medical students to feel confident in participating in academic writing now and in the future
