Look out for updates on these on our Facebook page!AMSA families: these include first years in medical school up until Core Training and is a brilliant way to get to know inter-year medics and receive mentorship, but also be a mentor yourself for the younger years in your family. There are many socials for you to join, either with your family, or as part of AMSA. Asian Medical Students Exchange Program (AMSEP): Previous trips have included Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan.
