Why Become a Member of AMSA at UC Merced?


Thousands of students enter college as pre-meds, but few graduate as such, with even fewer being admitted to a respective medical program. It is surely not an easy journey, but AMSA at UC Merced hopes to change that. We want to be a mechanism through which you can achieve your medical dreams. We offer study hours and tutoring, mentorship programs, speaker series, volunteer opportunities, and a support system through it all. Not to mention countless benefits through national membership, like health and car insurance, hotel or car rental discounts, or discounts on nearly all things Kaplan. 

How To become a member
