BCM Chapter of the American Medical Student Association
AMSA, the American Medical Student Association, is the largest independent group of physicians-in-training. The organization has several blood drives, pays for representatives to attend the annual national convention and has a mixer with The University of Texas Health Science Center students. It also runs the Big Sibling/Little Sibling program that all first and second year students are involved in and prints the annual AMSA Survival Manual (a treasure of facts, places, and things to do in Houston, as well as information about Baylor and life in general as a medical student). Many members are involved in task forces and community projects involving drug and sex education, mental health and preventative health education, and AIDS awareness and education.
The one-time fee entitles membership for four years, and also includes a subscription to the New Physician magazine. Also, many perks are available for members (i.e. a student health insurance policy).
We are 100 percent student-motivated and student-led!
