UPDATE: 03/29/09

  • In my last update I mentioned a meeting for prospective officers that was to be this month. CORRECTION: There will be a meeting in April, NOT March.
  • I have information that National AMSA sent me on membership benefits, dues, etc. If you would like any of this material email me back and I will see that it gets in your mailbox.
  • I will be going to various science classes next month to get freshmen and other pre-med people to interested in our Westmont chapter and let them know about the pre-health club.
  • Everyone plan on attending a meeting closer towards the end of April so that we can all get on the same page before summer and finalize details for both the pre-health club and AMSA chapter. More details to come.

  • I have spoken with the current pre-health officers and have gauged where the pre-health club is as of know and how it will fit in with our new AMSA chapter.

Update: 02/15/09

  • As of right now I am awaiting to set-up a meeting with the current pre-health officers. The purpose of this meeting will be to get their thoughts on the direction we should take and also ease the transition between officer team
  • We are going to need officers for both the pre-health club and AMSA chapter. If you are thinking about applying for a leadership role start praying about it now. More details to come!
  • Click here for the proposed structure of the pre-health club and the AMSA chapter. I know some of you are intending to go into another field besides medicine. As you will see from the graph you will still be able to be a member of the pre-health club and participate in various activities throughout the year. While I am on this subject I thought I would mention the current conversation I have had with Erika on starting a pre-dental chapter. Right now I have asked Erika to research this option some more. After we have most of the information on this, we will sit down with Dr. Marten and propose this idea to him. What this means for the pre-health club is another branch much like the AMSA chapter will be.

  • Click here for the proposed/preliminary AMSA chapter constitution and bylaws. Feel free to take a look at it and ask any questions you might have about it.
  • The goal right now is to plan on having an informational meeting for all those who have expressed interest sometime in April. This meeting will simply be used to answer any questions you have and let you know more detailed information as to what we would like to see in the future. I will be going around to the Bio, Chem, and other science classes to get more people interested in joining the pre-health club and telling them about this future meeting.

  • Many of you have asked me if you should sign-up at the AMSA website and become a member. The answer to this is not yet. The membership fee for this organization is somewhat high and I want to make sure we get chartered as a chapter first before I tell you to become a member. However, if you would like more information on AMSA feel free to visit their website and look around (

The Beginnings…

Attention Pre-Health Westmont students: We are trying to start up a national AMSA medical chapter here at Westmont. The goal is to take the existing pre-health club and nationalize it. Right now we are in the process of completing the necessary tasks to complete this, but we need YOUR help. We need to first get a core group of people together and submit names and dues to the AMSA. If you are planning on going into a medical profession and want to be part of starting up the FIRST national health club on campus please contact Joshua Mac Fawn for more information. (
