Our Story...

The premedical chapter of the American Medical Student Association at the University of California, Merced was founded with intentions very similar to the university itself — to fill a void. This void is a phenomenon known as brain drain. That is, many students leave the San Joaquin Valley in pursuit of higher education, though these students often do not bring this newfound knowledge back to the valley. Consequently, there is a great need for professionals throughout the region. AMSA at UC Merced hopes to change that. We plan to contribute to the growth and development of Central California by following in the tremendous footsteps of our association before us, and applying these methods and ideals respectively to facilitate an improvement in the health of the valley.
