University of Washington Global Medical Missions Alliance
President | 3rd Year
GMMA has been a stepping stone to finding greater discernment in my pre-health career. I am so grateful to find a community and have a fellowship that intersects my faith and my career. It’s amazing to see so many like-minded individuals come together with the common unified goal of seeking and furthering our faith together.

About University of Washington Student Chapter
Welcome to UWGMMA Chapter!
The University of Washington Student Chapter is blessed to have many mentors like Dr. Mia Lee MD, Dr. Simone Kim DSS, Dr. Kevin Lee DDS, Dr. George Min MD, and Dr. Gene Paek MD. Without these fantastic mentors’ contributions, the student chapter wouldn’t be as amazing as it is now. The purpose of student chapters is to allow networking and mentorship between students and doctors with Christ.
General Meetings will happen Bi-weekly Mondays at 7:00 PM. The location of general meetings for 2022-2023 academic school year will occur in SAVERY HALL 156. Meetings will usually last for about 1 to 1.5 hours. For more details about General Meetings, remember to look at our social media that will be posted on both Facebook(GMMA at UW) and Instagram(@uwgmma).
The University of Washington GMMA chapter offers many types of medical mission trips: Local, short, and long-term missions. These trips happen throughout the year (autumn, winter, and summer) in hopes of bringing both spiritual and physical healing to the community all around us. A group of missionaries will be sent to medically underserved communities to provide medical treatments alongside health professionals and, most importantly, to spread the love that God has first shown us on the cross. Local Mission Trips: We have partnered with one of Seattle’s Homeless Shelters: Seattle Union Gospel Mission, also known as Hope Place. These local missions will very during the time but will occur at least once per quarter. Short Term Mission Trips: for the 2022-2023 school year, UWGMMA was assigned two dates by GMMA HQ which are both during the winter quarter: January 27, 2023: Mexico February 24, 2023: Mexico Location TBD Long-term Mission Trips: TBD
