The mission of UC Berkeley AMSA Premed Chapter is to provide information, support and leadership development for future physicians-in-training at Cal. As activists, we seek to foster our philosophy of diversity and community service in the premedical student, while providing benefits and service which aid future physicians-in-training as they prepare for a career in medicine.
We are a group of students (mostly pre-meds, but everyone is welcome!) dedicated to giving back to the community, learning about medicine today, and creating a welcoming and supportive community at Cal. Founded a little more than a decade ago in the 90's by UC Berkeley students, it is a affiliated with the oldest and largest independent association of physicians-in-training in the United States-- the national American Medical Student Association (AMSA), which is known to have over six decades of medical student activism.
Today, UC Berkeley AMSA is a student-governed, UC Berkeley organization supported by the ASUC and is committed to representing the concerns of future physicians-in-training. With a membership of more than 150 premedical students, UC Berkeley AMSA continues its commitment to providing a support network and resource for pre-medical students interested in health and medicine.
