The Parents Association

Dear Keck School Families,

We are thrilled to have you as members of our Trojan Family!

Along with the other members of the Parents Association Board, our goal is to keep you informed about activities happening at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, while providing parent and student programming such as: The Annual Meeting and Health Care Conference, our Catalina Island Retreat, New Parent Welcome Reception and Orientation, Wellness Activities, the White Coat Ceremony, Step-One Survival Kits and Football Pre-Game Picnics.

The Keck Parents Association is not just for parents – we have spouses, grandparents, siblings, and other family members who join us at events and get involved to show their support to their students. The Parents Association Board meets quarterly, and each gathering features a guest speaker from the medical school. Parents are encouraged to attend in person or virtually.

As a group, we are poised to make a big impact on the lives of Keck Students through the Parents Association Endowed Scholarship Fund. Providing students with scholarship support enables us to further our mission of educating medical students and challenging them to become knowledgeable and compassionate physicians, citizens, and scholars. We hope you will join us and support this initiative.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our Office of Alumni Relations at to find out how you can get involved and show your support!
