The association of medical students of the University of Nairobi-AMSUN is the largest professional association in the College of health sciences with a membership of 1500 medical students drawn from both the regular and module 2 undergraduate programs.

The association is rich in both history and culture, with close to half a century at the helm of professional activities in the college. Every year as the college opens its doors to prospective medical students, we strive to offer our new colleagues a warm and cordial welcome as well as facilitating their induction into University life.

As the official in charge of academic affairs, arguably the most important agenda in the university, I would like to state that we run a very professional organization with core values aimed specifically to enrich the lives of our members through productive activities that build their character and competence in the medical field.
