How can I receive text alerts from AMSA?
You can sign up for AMSA text alerts by texting GTAMSA to 84483. If you no longer wish to receive these alerts, reply STOP.
How can I get involved in AMSA’s leadership?
Applications for executive board positions are emailed out to our members every spring (late March or early April). Committee chair applications for the advocacy and fundraising committees are made available at the start of every fall semester. Every spring, the executive board elects a new president and executive vice president. All of our leadership positions are one-year terms that correspond with the Georgia Tech’s academic year.
What clinical volunteering/shadowing opportunities are available through AMSA?
AMSA doesn’t necessarily have a formal relationship with any shadowing or volunteering programs, but a couple of our events can help navigate this process. During Networking Night, we will be hosting physicians for a dinner with our members. This is a great time to ask professionals about shadowing and volunteering. Among AMSA’s seminar series, AMSA plans to have a seminar focused on shadowing/volunteering. Other organizations such as Stamps Health Ambassadors and Student Hospital Connections, are also great on-campus clubs that offer shadowing and volunteering opportunities to their members.
