KAMSA CRC (California Regional Chapter) comprises the medical schools of sunny CA and is the first western extension of KAMSA that strives to reach out to the dense Korean American populations of NorCal and SoCal, originating from their close proximity to the motherland itself. Founded at Loma Linda, they have currently expanded to UCSD, UCI, and Western U in their first few months and have aggressive plans to eventually encompass all CA medical schools.


Their mission involves professional networking both with other students and KAMA physicians, volunteering in the Korean American community via health seminars and screenings, and pre-med advisory seminars via cooperation with undergraduate KASA (KA Student Association) chapters. Besides these objectives, they love to enjoy the laidback culture of California and enjoying time spent with each other.
