About UCLA Student Chapter
The UCLA GMMA student chapter started in 2013, when the KAMHC Doctor Board decided to empower the future generation of health professionals to take ownership of God’s calling. The majority of our student chapter comprises of undergraduates, who seek not only mentorship, but also guidance as they aspire to become health professionals. As a student chapter, we aspire to provide opportunities to network with Christian health professionals from various medical fields to help students acquire a direction for their lives.
We founded the UCLA GMMA student chapter to provide an organization in which students can grow as both God’s servants and as future health professionals. We strive to provide guidance for students to develop their identities centered on Christ.
Our general meetings are held on Mondays on ODD weeks (Week 1, 3, 5, 7, 9) in MS building in Rm. 5203 at 7:00 PM . The meetings will usually last about an hour to an hour and a half. If you want more details about our general meetings, please check the event page posted on our Facebook group page. We welcome you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!

Throughout the school year, we will be organizing numerous medical mission trips including one-day mission trip, winter mission trip, and summer mission trip to bring both physical and spiritual healing to the community around us. A group of missionaries will be sent to medically underserved communities to provide medical treatments alongside health professionals and, most importantly, to spread the love that God has first shown us on the cross.
2016-2017 School Year
One-Day Mexico Mission Trip: November 12-13, 2016 (APPLICATION WILL BE UPDATED 09/26/2016)
The reason for having multiple training days is because we have a lot of new things prepared for this trip and we are coordinating with multiple campuses(UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley). Trainings are shortened over multiple days rather than having 3 long ones! Students are only allowed to miss one of training sessions.
Summer Mission Trip: TBA

UCLA GMMA has grown to a great extent throughout these past three years, but this is just the beginning. God has a plan to use GMMA for his great kingdom. We aspire to know him more and align ourselves with his vision as his beloved sons and daughters.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about UCLA GMMA and our vision. We are also willing to collaborate with any other organization who may also share our same vision to expand God’s love through our careers as health professionals.
In His Love,
Stacey and UCLA GMMA Chapter
