AMT encourages schools to form AMT student chapters. Student chapters can be started for any allied health program for which AMT offers certification. A student society is an excellent way for students to network, get to know one another, and to learn teambuilding and leadership skills. It also encourages students and faculty to work together on programs, meetings and special events for the community. The skills students gain from leading a society, being in charge of a fundraiser or activity, or working together in a group will be invaluable in their chosen career.
