Learn More About SAMSA
"Generating positive waves of change in South African healthcare"

The South African Medical Students Association (SAMSA) is a nationally run nonprofit organization comprising of medical students from various medical schools across the country. Essentially, we are an organisation run by medical students for medical students and the greater communities of our beautiful nation.

Our members have a passion for both medicine and creating positive change in the South African and global communities at large. SAMSA has taken shape to create a network of medical students who support and encourage each other to make this positive change. By recruiting members from all over the country, SAMSA allows members to create a national movement and a scope of influence far outreaching that of a single university. We aim to create opportunities for professional development and acts as a representative voice for all South African medical students.

Our projects are chosen, coordinated and funded on a national level. They are then carried out by our corresponding divisions on a local level. They aim to encompass our 4 Pillars or Portfolios: Student Representation, Outreach, Collaboration and Professional Development.
