Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) is a student-governed organization that promotes awareness and advocacy of issues affecting the Asian and Asian Pacific American community. Officially starting in 1995, APAMSA aims to bring together Asians and others interested in the health issues that affect Asians in order to have a strong, collective, public, and political voice. We are interested in directly promoting the health and well-being of the Asian community and in helping all health care workers who work with these communities understand how to care for the Asian patient in a culturally sensitive manner.

At Feinberg, APAMSA hopes to create a space for Asian and Asian American medical students and the greater Feinberg community to meet, network, and discuss matters ranging from current healthcare issues to medical school life. We hold social events and opportunities for students to meet and also have close ties with the Hepatitis B Alliance Clinic and Chinatown Clinic to assist in healthcare screenings.
