KAMA 46th ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC CONVENTION

2020 VISION for DIVERSITY, INNOVATION, CURE

JULY 2-4, 2020

The Shilla Seoul

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 2020 KAMA Scientific Convention in Seoul will be an exciting opportunity to connect with our heritage and network with many colleagues in Korea to strengthen relationships across medical communities. The theme of this year’s KAMA convention “2020 Vision for Diversity, Innovation, Cure” 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. 

Inspiring TALKs

2020 KAMA brings together high-profile thought leaders who’ve made significant and enduring contributions in both their respective fields and throughout the world.
