Since the first edition was published in 1984, the AMSA International Health Opportunities Directory has been a popular resource provided by the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). Use this directory as a tool for information on global health programs and organizations for worldwide discovery and service. Included in the directory are opportunities with organization both in the US and abroad. The directory includes a variety of opportunities for both medical students and premeds. Volunteer, course work, fellowship, summer internships, and medical Spanish are among the types of opportunities you will find in the AMSA IHO Directory.
To use the directory, use either the search box on this page or visit the Browse Opportunities page. Use the advanced filters to search for specific health opportunities by location, education level, and opportunity type.
