On behalf of the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA)-West, we invite you to join us for the 40th Annual LMSA-West Regional Conference on April 5th-7th, 2024, hosted at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. 

Join us on Saturday, April 6th, for a full day of workshops, seminars, and keynote speakers and gain valuable leadership skills and career development while learning about issues facing the Latinx community. We welcome students of all levels—high school, pre-health undergraduate or recent graduate, and medical students—to participate in our conference.

On Saturday evening, we will have our LMSA West Gala to honor our fourth-year medical students and the accomplishments of our chapters and members.
