Welcome to the A.T. Still University-School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona's Student Chapter of the American Medical Student Association!

 
Our Mission:
 The ATSU-SOMA AMSA Chapter works to fulfill the goals of the national AMSA organization:
The American Medical Student Association is committed to improving health care and healthcare delivery to all people; promoting active improvement in medical education; involving its members in the social, moral and ethical obligations of the profession of medicine; assisting in the improvement and understanding of world health problems; contributing to the welfare of medical students, premedical students, interns, residents and post-MD/DO trainees; and advancing the profession of medicine.
 
 
Our Goals:
  • Quality, Affordable Health Care for All AMSA mobilizes students in advocating for quality, affordable health care for all. AMSA works through state and national coalitions to improve existing public programs and to advocate for a public national health insurance program.
  • Global Health Equity This encompasses the issues of wellness, safety, opportunity, and environment which make up a healthy society. It also highlights the interconnected nature of all people and our responsibility for rational and proportional assistance for all people, regardless of which country they live in. Justice and equity are paramount to assuring that race, religion, income, gender, sexual preference or nationality are not factors limiting access to quality care.  
  • Enriching Medicine Through Diversity As the world becomes more integrated and mobile, the need for a health care workforce to reflect our society increases. AMSA’s independence was fueled by the civil rights era and continues today in advocacy for culturally appropriate care, underrepresented providers in medicine, and admission criteria which do not exclude those from different backgrounds. 
  • Professional Integrity, Development and Student Well-Being Physicians have long had a sacred social mission and AMSA seeks to help create physicians who uphold their duties to patients and society alike. An important aspect of professionalism, however, entails self-care, and we are dedicated to helping physicians-in-training through undergraduate, medical and residency training while maintaining balance and retaining commitment to personal and professional growth.
