We are a society of physicians and dentists of Japanese heritage that was established in 1973 by a small group of Japanese physicians in New York City. Initially, networking and social gathering were the main purposes of the society, but as we expanded over the years, we began to emphasize community service. First such effort was the scholarship program to aid deserving medical students and trainees so that they would become successful medical and social leaders of the future.
One of the benefits of membership in the JMSA is listing in our professional directory. This provides both new referrals from patients looking for a doctor and also boosts your search results if you link to your practice website. JMSA.org is highly ranked by all the major search engines.
Our student members are involved in many outstanding projects both here and abroad. Student members enjoy mentorship from JMSA members in various medical fields, helping to prepare for their future careers. The JMSA also awards a number of scholarships each year.
