Salerni Collegium Alumni Association
About the Association
The Salerni Collegium Alumni Association (SCAA) was established in 1958 and is home to all Keck School of Medicine graduates, former residents of LAC+USC, faculty, parents and friends who share the mission to support medical education. 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 our white coat ceremony, shadow and mentoring programs, student wellness, 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.
