Al-Azhar Medical Student Association (AMSA) is a non-profit association managed by volunteer medical students and is independent from the Students Union In December 2007 Al-Azhar Medical student association became a candidate member in IFMSA-Egypt and was further promoted into an Associate member in November 2008 and a full member in November 2010. As a member of IFMSA-Egypt, AMSA shares the same mission and vision with IFMSA while maintaining its unique identity as a part of the most prestigious Islamic institution namely Al-Azhar university.

Al-Azhar university is the first university in Egypt it was founded 970~972 and the faculty of medicine in Al-Azhar were founded in 1962 with three big hospitals that serve medical students where most all specialties are available.

Tropical medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with health problems that occur uniquely, are more widespread, or prove more difficult to control in tropical and subtropical regions. Many infections and infestations that are classified as "tropical diseases" used to be endemic in countries located in temperate or even cold areas. This includes widespread epidemics such as malaria and hookworm infections as well as exceedingly rare diseases like lagochilascaris minor. Many of these diseases have been controlled or even eliminated from developed countries, as a result of improvements in housing, diet, sanitation, and personal hygiene. Since climate is not the main reason why those infections remain endemic in tropical areas, there is a trend towards renaming this specialty as "Geographic Medicine" or "Third World Medicine.
