The Group on Student Affairs (GSA) represents the interests of medical schools and medical students in the areas of admissions, diversity affairs, financial aid, student affairs, and student records.

Specifically, the Committee on Admissions (COA) receives and responds to information, requests, concerns and issues relating to medical school application and admission. The COA works closely with the GSA and other AAMC and external constituents in reviewing and deliberating on admissions issues referred to it.

The Committee on Diversity Affairs (CODA) provides guidance on medical student diversity, on a local, regional, and national basis, with respect to student recruitment, admissions, retention and graduation. CODA serves as the representative body (leadership and support structure) of the larger constituency, the diversity affairs representatives. Diversity Affairs Representatives are the constituents at the medical schools who have responsibility for medical student diversity.

The Committee on Student Records (COSR) represents medical school student records professionals nationally. The profession has evolved from a primarily clerical function to one that encompasses technology, data management and security, and integrity of academic records. COSR's chief function is to advance the professional development opportunities and to provide leadership for AAMC medical school registrars.
