Advocating for change at the 2008 AMSA National Convention and Global Health Conference
The Australian Medical Students’ Association (AMSA) is the peak representative body for over 13 000 Australian medical students. In the course of its many and varied operations, the organisation hosts two major events each year — the AMSA National Convention (NC) and the AMSA Global Health Conference (GHC). The 2008 AMSA GHC and NC were held in Melbourne from 4–6 July (Box 1) and 6–13 July, respectively. These events were attended by around 1200 students, representing all 19 Australian medical schools.
