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

The Salerni Collegium Alumni Association (SCAA) was established in 1958 and is home to all Keck graduates, former residents of LAC+USC, 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. Today, our organization provides scholarships for medical students, while also engaging in student programming such as white coat ceremony, career day, Keck peer tutoring program, shadow and mentoring programs, residency fair, student tailgates, med-olympics, and graduation.

SCAA membership is free and your involvement helps us support our medical students and further enhance the Keck Medicine Initiative. We engage our alumni with opportunities to network with one another and connect with current students who are on their journey to become medical leaders.

The SCAA website has been designed to inform and engage you, the member. 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.

Please join me in supporting scholarships for the medical leaders of tomorrow through the Salerni Collegium Alumni Association. All gifs made to support Salerni Collegium and the Keck School of Medicine qualify you to be a member of the Leadership Giving Society.

Fight on!

Class of 1964

When asked to reflect on his medical education Richard L. Byyny, MD ‘64 said, “I was really proud to be accepted to medical school at USC and I had great classmates! Ours was a small class. I believe there were 67 of us, including six women, who graduated in 1964. Being trained at LAC+USC was an exceptional experience for all.”

But, Keck School of Medicine students like Doug Matsunaga have a whole year or more to pursue their dreams of scientific discovery in the Dean’s Research Scholars Program.
