APAMSA is the Asian Pacific American Medical Students Association. We are a national organization that aims to address those issues important to Asian American and Pacific Islander medical students.
One part of our mission is to bring together Asians, Pacific Islanders and others interested in the health issues that affect Asians and Pacific Islanders so that we may have a strong, collective, public and political voice. We are interested in both directly promoting the health and well-being of the Asian and Pacific Islander community as well as in helping all health care workers who work with these communities understand how to care for the Asian or Pacific Islander patient in a culturally sensitive manner. Finally, APAMSA provides an important forum for APIA medical students to meet, exchange information and experiences and develop personally and professionally.
