Parents Association of the Keck School of Medicine

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.

  • The road to a cure for HIV/AIDS

    Something wonderful sometimes happens when scientists and the public get together to talk about research. All the jargon, all the technical language falls away, and it becomes instead a conversation between the two groups with most at stake: the people in need of a treatment or cure, and the people trying to develop it. Last week, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) joined with the AIDS Project Los Angeles to hold a Town Hall event in West Hollywood called HIV Matters: Countdown to a Cure: California Leads the Way. Around 120 people showed up to listen to stem cell scientists from USC, City of Hope, Calimmune and Sangamo Biosciences — all of whom are using CIRM funding to develop new treatments and hopefully even cures for HIV/AIDS.
