As a warm selcome to future AMT members, the AMT professional association invites those in training to join student communities, get recognized and have some fun. A virtual community, local school societies, awards, scholarships and a national student bowl competition recognize the value of up-and-coming health professionals.
Online communities for applicants only
Connect with your peers who are currently sharing your journey toward becoming an allied health professional. It's simple to access the AMT online community dedicated for applicants--just login to your AMT account.
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.
