With a large network of medical societies, AMSA relies on professional publications to reach its members. Panacea is AMSA's biannual publication. With feature articles, reports and academic reviews, the magazine is a dynamic product. In addition, the monthly e-newsletter Embolus provides news and updates direct to medical student inboxes. As a service to final year students, the Intern and Resident's Guide (IRG) details all the prevocational positions available in each of Australia's teaching hospitals. Hospitals and primary care practices feature in the guide. A list of AMSA's publications can be found below.
