So, why Become an AMSA ARC Officer?

  • We are a nationally recognized chapter of the American Medical Student Association or AMSA, which means that your officer activity at AMSA ARC will be backed up and documented in the national headquarters. This opportunity will strengthen your resume for medical school by contributing to your community through AMSA ARC.
  • Six of AMSA ARC's former officers are currently holding national pre-medical positions with AMSA. National officers are elected at AMSA's annual conferences by their peers; those who made the cut in the past ran on their community service and chapter involvement record (consequently, our alumni depended heavily on their AMSA ARC work to make their case on Election Day). There is no reason why you shouldn't be next to take up a national leadership position -- get involved with AMSA ARC to build an impressive resume!
  • The Annual AMSA ARC Pre-Med Conference -- planned, coordinated, and staffed by our club officers - - is a well-known pre-med event amongst deans of admission from medical schools throughout California and the East Coast (check out the conference website for more information: ). Getting involved with AMSA ARC will give you the opportunity to work on the 2018 conference and make yourself known to the medical school officials who attend the event every year (some of our mainstay visitors include: Stanford, Harvard, University of Chicago, UCSF, UCLA, UC Davis, UC Irvine, and USC medical schools, among others). All club officers have their picture and biography included in the event program distributed to all conference attendees and presenters, including medical school deans and directors of admission.

What Do Current & Former AMSA ARC Officers Say?

  • "AMSA ARC was the single most important thing I did in my pre-med journey to medical school. Without my work in AMSA ARC, I would have not been where I am today."

- Current 2nd Medical Student at UC Davis Medical School, and former AMSA ARC Officer

  • "Being in AMSA ARC helped me when I transferred and received a full scholarship to UC Berkeley."

- 4th year UC Berkeley student, former AMSA ARC Officer

  • "During my medical school admission process and my secondaries many of the questions asked about my leadership experience and service, which were all gained in AMSA ARC. During my interview day at medical school, the Dean of Admission of the medical school met me and talked to me and thanked me for applying to his medical school, and told me he appreciated the work we do for the AMSA ARC conference. He then escorted me to my interview and introduced me to the faculty interviewer, to whom I spent the hour talking about what I did in AMSA ARC and the work I had done. It was not much of an interview, because I was talking about AMSA ARC the whole time. The great news is that I received my acceptance phone call 10 days later from the Dean of Admission personally telling me how he wanted me to come to his school."

- 2nd Year Medical Student at UC Davis School of Medicine, former AMSA ARC Officer

  • "I applied for an undergraduate scholarship last year, and it asked me about service, and I talked about what did in AMSA ARC as an officer from tutoring to the conference. I was granted an interview, and during the interview, I was asked questions about what did in AMSA ARC. I ended up receiving a $25,000 scholarship for two years at UCLA."

- Current 4th year undergraduate student at UCLA, former AMSA ARC Officer

  • "I applied for a very competitive summer program, and since I had already met the program director and coordinated his workshop, I was encouraged by him to apply. I was accepted into the program 5 days after I applied. I was one of six selected out of 1500 applicants. Most were from top schools like Harvard and Stanford, and I was the only one from a community college!"

- Current AMSA ARC Officer and ARC student

  • "My MCAT prep program, valued at $2000, was paid for by my service to AMSA ARC. Plus, I received additional tutoring for free since I was an AMSA ARC officer. It saved me a lot of money and time by not having to work to pay for the program and do extremely well on the MCAT."

- Incoming 1st Year Medical Student at UCSF School of Medicine, former AMSA ARC Officer

  • "By only spending 4-5 hours a week for two years as an AMSA ARC Officer, I was able to build a wealth of extracurricular activities that served me well not only to learn, but to also talk about on my application for scholarships and medical schools. I was not able to do a lot more, since I worked and have a family, but it was enough to help get into medical school."

- Current 2nd year Medical Student at UC Davis School of Medicine, former AMSA ARC Officer

  • "I was able to get a paid clinical research position via one of our physician speakers that came one Friday and he mentioned my work as an AMSA ARC officer. Subsequently, I was able to do research during my last year at ARC and all two years at UC Davis. I now have six publications and I was paid for all of them!"

- Current 3rd year at UCLA School of Medicine, former AMSA ARC Officer
