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.

Going on medical mission trips with GMMA has initiated my passion for medicine but also reminded me to serve others unconditionally. The people I’ve also met at the UW chapter and on mission trips have shown me how a body of Christ can work together to serve our one true God! Through GMMA, I’ve been able to incorporate my education and future with my faith by continuously seeking humility, trusting in Him alone. I’m truly blessed to serve alongside my brothers and sisters in order to be the salt and light of the UW campus.

To me, GMMA means that I have a God-fearing family who were called and willingly answered to go and carry out His mission, which is sharing the good news of Christ. I joined GMMA because I wanted to go on missions that were both Christ-centered and medical-based. I look forward to how God will use GMMA to share His good news during the pandemic and I pray that we will all remain obedient to His calling!

The vision that GMMA represents is actually my dream. Something I always wanted to do in my life is missionary work. I wanted to be able to spread the word of God somehow. From this, I looked into medicine as a possible method of delivering the Word of God, which is how I found GMMA. The work that GMMA does perfectly matches what I want to do, so I had to join it. I was able to witness how missions work through GMMA, and it showed me what was realistic and what kind of things are possible.

Mission Coordinator | 2nd Year

Through GMMA, I was blessed to have a spiritual community in the midst of all the pressuring and stressful college environment. I first joined to simply be involved with a club, but GMMA offered so much more. I was able to personally meet with many God-centered friends and mentors where I was encouraged to be accountable for my faith during the tough school days. GMMA is a family with loving people who engage and uplift each other to pursue God’s will to serve with our passion for healthcare.

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.

Mission Trips

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
