Medical Students’ Conference (AMSC) is an annual scientific based
convention that serves as a catalyst for young aspiring medical
students from Asia and Oceania to debate on current issues in the world
of medicine. Malaysia is proud to host the 26th AMSC with the theme “Technology in Medicine: Embracing the Progress, Serving the People”.
We hope to attract more than 400 medical students from Australia, Papua
New Guinea, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, The Philippines, Indonesia
and Thailand to this once in a lifetime experience.
the interesting topics in the battle of wits among member countries are
the pros and cons of technology in medicine, its applications and
practicability to the population, and not forgetting the availability
of sophisticated technologies amongst rural citizens.

intriguing question, what’s next for the future? These are just some
hot topics waiting for our discovery.
week with talented medical students from all walks of life is a
challenging task as participants try to get acclimatized to new
environment, new friends, and compete with one another to present their
research papers in the hope of winning the hearts of many.
all work and no fun make AMSC a dull event. So, participants are also
exposed to the cultures and traditions of various member countries
through exciting cultural and social programs. AMSC not only broaden
our horizons but it also fosters mutual understanding and builds closer
friendships. Eventually, this network serves as a support group for
medical students to exchange their views and as a stepping stone for
future partnerships in any medical programs.
a doctor isn’t just wearing the dazzling white coat with the
sophisticated stethoscope, it’s also reaching out to the unfortunate in
the spirit of humanity. This aspect of human touch is part of the
holistic approach that aims to nurture caring doctors who think beyond
their textbooks and profits, serving mankind with dignity and honour.
Here in AMSC, we create an avenue for participants to appreciate the science as well as the art of medicine.
