Join AMSA, the Largest Pre-Health Organization at the University of Miami​!

It's easy to become a member of AMSA. Once you are a member, you gain:

How do I join?

To gain access to all of the benefits of becoming an AMSA member, you must pay local chapter dues. These dues can be paid via cash (preferred) or venmo to the AMSA Treasurer at any of our monthly General Body Meetings. You will have to fill out a simple membership form when you do this. Chapter dues are as follows:

  • $20/1 year of Membership

  • $40/4 years of Membership (Most Common)

If your schedule does not allow you to attend GBMs, an exception can be made. Contact Taylor Osborne, AMSA Treasurer at to schedule a dues pickup.

AMSA is the largest National Medical Student organization, meaning it also has National Dues (one time $70 fee) . Our chapter does not require these to be paid to be a member, however you would have to pay them if you want to add AMSA in your AMCAS Med School application. If you are so inclined, you can become a National member at


To be considered an "Active" Member,  you must meet the following requirements each semester:
