AMSA International is a peak representative organization for medical students from across Asia, the Asia-Pacific and beyond. Standing on the three pillars of Knowledge, Action, and Friendship, AMSA International aims to nurture and give her members valuable experience outside of their medical student curricula.
The Asian Medical Students’ Conference is the flagship conference of AMSA International that involves the participation of hundreds of medical students each summer, yearly. The objective of AMSC lies in creating a platform for a strong, global network of medical students- who as future medical practitioners, will explore and develop their academic knowledge, cultural appreciation, and interpersonal skills.
The AMSC comprises of three main aspects: academic, sociocultural, and community service programs. This event allows medical students from AMSA Chapters to congregate, discuss and present their projects and research which were conducted based on the theme agreed upon for the conference that year. In addition, delegates can also experience different traditions and customs through the cultural events organized throughout course of the conference and network with future doctors across Asia, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, or race.
This year, the conference, organized by AMSA South Korea, has the theme of “Telemedicine: Is it ideal or suboptimal?”. The Academic Competition aims to approach the technical advancements and reliability of telemedicine, while considering the medical effectiveness. The focus of the program is to understand the current status of digital health from the perspective of technical difficulties and stability, and consider the ways to improve upon them.
