Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA)
Mary Z., M1
The Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association (APAMSA) at WashU is a chapter of the national organization, and it offers great opportunities for medical students interested in health advocacy for Asian Pacific American populations and celebrating Asian Pacific culture. APAMSA hosts regular health screening events in Asian Pacific communities in St. Louis, runs a Chinese clinic, offers classes in medical Chinese, and organizes performances and cultural awareness events. If you would love to practice your clinic skills while helping an underserved ethnic group, learn how to take a patient history in another language, or learn more about the healthcare challenges confronting the Asian Pacific American community, you should definitely join APAMSA!
