"Medicine Is Our Passion, Diversity Is Our Strength"

The UCSD School of Medicine LMSA chapter is composed of dedicated medical students from all walks of life, focused on increasing the representation of Latinx health professional students that attend UCSD School of Medicine and improving health equity, advocacy, and policy for underserved communities. We strive to develop leaders that will be responsible for the care and well-being of one of the most dynamic and diverse populations in the world.

We unite a community of students, alumni, and health professionals to promote the advancement of Latinx students, patients, and community members throughout San Diego. By fostering higher educational programs, community volunteering, and networking opportunities, our greater mission is to recruit and support individuals in the healthcare profession who will strive to improve the access and delivery of health care to the Latinx and medically underserved populations.

Mission Statement:  LMSA is part of a regional and national network comprised of diverse and dedicated medical students. We actively promote:

  • The development of a communication network for medical, pre-medical, and health care students interested in serving the Latinx and medically underserved communities.
  • Medical, pre-medical, and health care students’ interests that will lead to the improvement of health care for the Latinx and medically underserved communities.
  • Health policy education that affects the Latinx and medically underserved communities.
  • Educational enrichment programs for the recruitment of underrepresented medical school applicants.
  • Collaborations with other organizations committed to the improvement of health care delivery for underserved communities.
