AMSA Gender Equity

AMSA holds gender equity as one of its core principles, recognising the impact that it has on health outcomes, and lives of its members, Australian medical students. AMSA works closely with universities, hospitals, colleges, the AMA and other key stakeholders to build a medical culture free of bullying, sexual harassment and discrimination.


There are many exciting opportunities for students to be involved with with gender equity! You could apply for our inaugural mentor-mentee program that aims to address females’ consistent underrepresentation in leadership positions by connecting female mentees with their older counterparts, become an advocate on gender equity using AMSA’s training resources or write for our many publications. You can even be profiled this year as AMSA launches its first campaign highlighting individuals working to achieve gender equity in medicine.

AMSA Gender Equity Mentoring

This July saw the launch of the inaugural Women in Mentorship Leadership Program, a program connecting younger female and non-binary medical students with their older counterparts that are armed with some leadership experience. The aim of this program is to empower students to take on leadership experience, particularly important in this demographic where research demonstrates that they are more likely to be affected by lack of self-confidence.
