All current Australian Medical Students are automatically members of AMSA, giving them access to a range of members benefits. AMSA has a benefits program that gives students discounts at relevant retailers and service providers. AMSA members also have access to a gold AMSA American Express credit card program. Importantly, AMSA members can apply for a range of scholarships and bursaries that reward achievements in research, rural health and international clinical work. AMSA also runs several competitions that students are able to enter during the duration of their degree. For past members, the AMSA Alumni provides a network for members to remember the times of being a medical student, maintain communication with peers and to exchange knowledge about the growing field of medicine.
