Welcome to the Salerni Collegium Alumni Association
of the Keck School of Medicine of USC!

Established in 1958, the Salerni Collegium Alumni Association (SCAA) is home to Keck School alumni, resident alumni, faculty, parents and friends who share the mission to support medicine. Over the years, Salerni has evolved into one of the biggest medical support and networking groups in the nation.  The organization provides scholarships for medical students, while also funding student programming such as White Coats, Career Day, Medical Scholars Tutoring Program, Shadow and Mentoring Program, Residency Fair, Student Tailgates, Med-Olympics, and Graduation Regalia.

SCAA membership is free.  Benefits include access to the alumni online community, KeckNet, where alumni can search an alumni directory, post class notes, register for events, and get involved with mentorship and volunteer opportunities.

The SCAA website has been designed to inform and engage its members.  To learn more about the SCAA, explore the website navigation links on the left-hand-side of this page.  Information about upcoming events, recent news stories, how to get involved, and much more is included on the linked-to pages. Please visit us often.

I joined the SCAA Executive Board with the goal of increasing scholarship support. Please join me in supporting scholarships for the medical leaders of tomorrow through the Salerni Collegium Alumni Association.

Fight on!
