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.

 

Scope

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.

Vol. 9 (2021): Abstract Book - EAMSC 2021

The Journal of Asian Medical Students’ Association (JAMSA) aims to serve as a platform for medical students to thrive and strive in the exponential development of evidence-based medicine. The main objective of JAMSA is to serve as a portal by documenting the research activities. To achieve that goal, we propose  partnerships with  conference committees to publish an Abstract Book consisting of scientific paper abstracts, scientific posters, and white papers.

Here, we present the Abstracts of the East Asian Medical Students’ Conference (EAMSC) 2021, Manila, Philippines. With the conference theme, “Communication in Healthcare - Sending the Right Message”, the EAMSC 2021 organised academic competitions to focus on the unique challenges posed by health communication strategies in their own countries, and how these affect the overall delivery of health services to their people. Abstracts of the Scientific Poster & Paper Competition and White Paper Competition  are published in this Abstract Book which will help the reader quickly ascertain the paper's purpose
