Asian Pacific American Medical Association

Mission

The Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) chapter at Rush is a branch of the regional and national organization of medical, pre-medical, and other health professional students committed to addressing the unique health challenges of Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) communities. APAMSA provides an important venue for health professional students to meet, exchange experiences, and develop personally and professionally through leadership and service. Throughout the year APAMSA hosts several community service events in predominantly APIA communities as well as social and educational events on- and off-campus in collaboration with other local student chapter organizations.
