UAG students have a forum in these international chapters to distribute information about medical education, licensure, practice, and to represent the needs and interests of international students through an active voice.
The UAG SOM Chapter of AMSA is a group of motivated students committed to help shape a better, healthier future, for patients and physicians, and the country.
The purpose of the AMSA UAG Chapter is to meet the needs of fellow medical students and to provide an environment where they can come together and share their interests and ideas in the hopes of creating long-lasting relationships with strong supportive foundations.
We provide numerous opportunities for members to become involved in community service, public health outreach, professional development, and policy activism.
The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) is an organization of women physicians, medical students and other persons dedicated to serving as the unique voice for women’s health and the advancement of women in medicine.
The organization was founded by Dr. Bertha VanHoosen in 1915 in Chicago, at a time when women physicians were an under-represented minority.
As women in medicine increase in numbers, new problems and issues arise. AMWA has been addressing these issues for 95 years.
The Pediatric Interest Group of UAG was started in the Fall semester of 2021.
This organization was created to give back to the community and to focus on the tiny humans we hope to treat one day. The strength of this organization lies in the care we have for infants, children, and adolescents and their health.
The Pediatric Interest Group will not only lie in the words we stand by (exploring, advocating, volunteering), but most importantly strive to fulfill the actions of our initiatives. This organization plans to support future physicians in finding effective solutions to these concerns and create a better future for generations to come.
