Asian Pacific-American Medical Student Association (APAMSA)
Founded in January of 1995, APAMSA's main mission is to bring together Asian Pacific Islander (API) American medical students and others interested in health issues that affect APIs. It seeks to promote awareness of topics such as cultural sensitivity, access to health care, alternative medicine and political activism by offering educational and community service opportunities. APAMSA also provides an important forum for API medical students to network and exchange experiences that enhance their personal and professional development.
Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA)
The Latino Medical Student Association -- Northeast (LMSA-NE), formerly known as the National Boricua Latino Health Organization (NBLHO), is a Latino student group representing health professions students from the northeast region of the United States. Our mission is to recruit Latinos into higher education, educate the public and one another about Latino health issues, advocate for increased Latino representation in health related areas, and promote awareness about social, political and economic issues as they relate to Latino health. The New York Medical College LMSA Chapter is an affiliate of the Northeast Region and is also fully affiliated with the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA). This is a national partnership between other regional Latino medical student groups to create one strong voice for Latino medical students throughout the entire United States.

As a NYMC student organization, we actively work to improve healthcare delivery to LGBT patient populations through outreach activities, addressing community health issues and concerns, and participating in volunteer/mentoring opportunities within the LGBT community. Our organization communicates and collaborates with other health professionals, creating a positive, safe, and proactive environment for patients in which the highest quality of care can be delivered, and a safe, supportive atmosphere in which our fellow students can foster their personal and professional growth. We educate both current and future physicians on the special healthcare needs of LGBT patients through conferences, discussions, and focused educational experiences, creating competent and compassionate physicians.
