Parents Association of the Keck School of Medicine

Parents are part of the Trojan Family

Trojan parents should be given a chance to be involved and support their son's or daughter's USC experience. USC believes that parental support aids student success.

If you have a student at the Keck School of Medicine, you are automatically a member, and your membership is free.

What does the Parents Association do?
The Keck School of Medicine Parents Association, in partnership with the USC Office for Parent Programs, develops activities for the nationwide involvement of new and current Trojan parents. Events are designed to strengthen communication with other USC parents, promote parent participation and support your student's medical school experience. Learn More.
