Welcome to CAMASC

The Chinese American Medical Association of Southern California (CAMASC), formerly known as the Chinese Physicians for Chinatown (CPC), is a medical professional association which originated in Los Angeles, California during the 1970’s. CAMASC was later formally incorporated as a 501(c) (6) non-profit organization in 1985. One of the primary focuses of CAMASC is promoting Continuing Medical Education (CME) for practicing physician members, who are interested in improving the health care for Chinese in Southern California and North America. Thereby, CAMASC is accredited by the Institute for Medical Quality/California Medical Association (IMQ/CMA) to provide quality CME activities for its physicians. Today, CAMASC has over 300 physician members and provides CME activities for physician members and non-members alike. 

As a leading health care professional organization, CAMASC also supports health fairs and health educational programs. Physician members are encouraged to volunteer and participate in many local health care events. Activities range from speaking at local schools and business institutions, to contributing articles to newsletters and press, as well as media appearances, and discussing issues such as health controversies and preventive medicine.
