AMSA Health Day
The AMSA Health Day is celebrated on 2nd of May every year to commemorate the anniversary of the founding of AMSA Malaysia. It provides a great opportunity to the AMSA members to mobilise action around a specific concerned health topic to the people all over Malaysia. All the member universities of AMSA Malaysia will carry out the theme-related programmes in different locations in Malaysia to promote awareness on certain health topics to our society.
AMSA Community Service
AMSA Community Service is introduced since December 2014. The core concept of AMSA Community Service is that the efforts of medical students to provide community service and to reach out to the underprivileged has intrinsic educational value for members and benefits the community. Members have the chance to do, see, and learn things in settings to which they might not otherwise have access as part of their formal medical education. In addition, conceiving, planning, and implementing projects and activities enhances leadership skills and provides members with insight into community-based organizations. The possibility that some members might be intrigued by the challenges of health care in these settings, with some effect on career choices, is an additional latent advantage of the programme.
AMSA Community Service seeks to play a significant role in the community via utilizing all available resources in order to reinforce AMSA Malaysia image within local, regional as well as international societies.
