AMSA Houston

Welcome to AMSA Houston

The American Medical Student Association (AMSA) at The University of Houston is a pre-medical honors student organization that seeks to give its entire chapter any and all opportunities a pre-medical student needs when aiming to become a physician.

About Us

Our Beliefs

Since its inception in 2008, UH-AMSA has played a critical and essential role on campus in providing pre-medical students with the resources, opportunities, and support that is fundamental to pursuing a career in medicine. To be more specific, we coordinate and provide our chapter with community service outreach involvement, networking experiences, shadowing opportunities, MCAT course auctions, professional lectures, health fairs, professional education & development workshops, opportunities for medical missions, and an opportunity to grow as a leader through improving leadership skills and professionalism needed in the healthcare industry. Likewise our main priority is still–and always will be–to get you prepared for the application process of getting into medical school.
