WHAT is it all about?

GATHERS, COLLABORATES, AND ADVANCES TOGETHER.

Each year, Korean American physicians, trainees, and medical students from across the U.S. convene to participate in the scholarly exchange of medical advances and to share experiences through networking opportunities.  The 2022 KAMA Scientific Convention in Los Angeles will be an exciting opportunity to connect and network with many colleagues to strengthen relationships across medical communities. The theme of this year’s KAMA convention “2022 Community, Equity, and Collaboration” reflects the meeting’s focus on promoting diversity, particularly women in medicine, and on increasing international collaboration with physicians in Korea in order to drive innovation and find new cures.
