AMA-MSS Regions

Background

The AMA-MSS is composed of seven geographic regions. AMA-MSS regions are responsible for:

  • providing a structure for the election of Regional Delegates;
  • providing students with a home within the AMA-MSS;
  • serving as a communication unit for the AMA-MSS;
  • providing a means to foster collaboration between AMA-MSS sections and state medical student sections; and
  • facilitating interaction between new sections and well-established sections.

Each AMA-MSS region is governed by a Region Chair and a Region Vice Chair. A number of regions elect additional leaders to assist in accomplishing the goals of the region.
