Research and Scientific writing by medical students is being increasingly acknowledged all over the world. AMSA International with its vision of Knowledge, Action and Friendship, wants to encourage all forms of research and creative work from medical students. JAMSA is a platform for young and budding researchers from Asia-Pacific and beyond who are just beginning their careers in the medical and scientific fields.



The main objective of JAMSA is to serve as a portal by documenting the research activities. We encourage all forms of scientific writing including Original Research articles, Review Articles, Case Reports, feature articles, letters to the editor etc. If you are interested in submitting your research article please go through the Author Guidelines and Submission Guidelines under the Submission section of our website.

The journal accepts scientific articles authored by medical students including but not limited to the member countries of AMSA International. Scientific articles related to all the disciplines of medicine, public health or health care management and those articles having impact on health in any form will be accepted. However, the editorial board reserves the right to deny publication of any article if it deems so. One of our priorities is to keep the article processing time to a minimum. Our online submission and article processing system has been tailored to fulfill this objective. Preference will be given to original articles with structured methodology.

AMSC 2021 Abstract Book

Trauma is a serious public health problem, with notable physical, mental, social and economic costs. Consistent with the conference theme, "Trauma Care: Same Problems with Different Solutions", the Asian Medical Students' Conference (AMSC) 2021 organized academic competitions to focus on the unique challenges posed by trauma care and how these affect the overall delivery of health services to the people.

Abstracts of the following academic competition are published in this abstract book:

The Scientific Paper & Poster Competition aims to produce original full scientific research papers embodying the theme and tackling the problems related to it. These findings must then be translated into scientific posters that are easily digestible by the public, emphasizing the need to communicate these results and generate meaningful discussion with the people who are the major stakeholders in trauma care.

The White Paper Competition, which centers on in-depth reports that provide systemic solutions to the problems presented during trauma care. The overarching goal is to create solutions grounded on public health principles and systems-based approaches. Public health policy changes – either local, national, or supranational, are discussed, with the aim to improve the outcome of the trauma victim by establishing best practice throughout the whole chain of care.

These competitions were designed to provide avenues for medical students to discuss on-ground problems in their local communities and collectively come up with innovative solutions to these pressing concerns.
