The Australian Medical Student Journal (AMSJ) is the brainchild of a group of NSW medical students with aspirations to build the next generation of medical researchers.
The inaugural issue features guest authors, including Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Australian of the Year Prof. Patrick McGorry and Australian Medical Association President, Dr Andrew Pesce.

The AMSJ is calling on students and doctors to submit, critique and get involved. The AMSJ is distributed free of charge to 14,000 medical students across the country via print and online editions.
