welcome to aamsa
Welcome to AAMSA
  • The University of Kansas School of Medicine Asian American Medical Student Association (AAMSA) was founded the fall of 2001 by a group of second year medical students seeking a forum for issues pertaining to Asians and medical practice.
mission statement
Mission Statement
  • The University of Kansas AAMSA and chapter organization of  APAMSA was formed to meet the specific needs and concerns of Asian American medical students in the state of Kansas.
  • AAMSA provides a social and intellectual network for medical students of all ethnicities to mature as future physicians.
  • AAMSA works with other campus organizations to accomplish the aforementioned goals.
  • AAMSA is the Kansas Chapter of the Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA), a national organization that brings together Asians and others interested in the health issues that affect Asians so that we may have a strong, collective, public and political voice. APAMSA is interested in both directly promoting the health and well-being of the Asian community as well as in helping all health care workers who work with these communities understand how to care for the Asian patient in a culturally sensitive manner. Finally, APAMSA provides an important forum for Asian Pacific American medical students to meet, exchange information and experiences and develop personally and professionally.
