On the 9th of November 2013, medical students from across the country came together for an inaugural National Medical Student Summit. The summit led to the launch and establishment of the Association of Medical Students in Ireland (AMSI). For the first time since the late 19th century, Irish medical students have an organization that can facilitate dialogue at a national and international level.
The national organization will aim to:
* Increase collaboration between the medical schools
* Represent the views of medical student on a national scale
* Promote medical student wellness
* Create a forum where students can discuss a range of scientific and social topics
We would like to bring to your attention the existence of this organisation and the individual school representatives. This organisation will provide an alternative method for individual medical schools to communicate with all Irish medical students.
Now, local AMSI committees have been formed in each of the six Medical Schools to get things moving on the ground.
