Over the years, participating chapters increased to include Hong Kong and Japan, and thus the conference name was changed to the EAMSC. But the EAMSC seemed like so much fun that other AMSA chapters also wanted to participate and the 16th EAMSC 2003 was held in the Philippines and today, the EAMSC is like a small AMSC!This photo shows Jongmin Lee and Matthew Ma from National Taiwan University.
Although Singapore hosted the 5th AMSC they did not become a founding member of AMSA and were not involved in AMSA for a few decades. But they re-joined us in 2012 and successfully hosted the 25th EAMSC!
The First East Asian Medical Students’ Conference (EAMSC) was held at Seoul National University College of Medicine in February, 1988. It was orginally held between Taiwan and Korea and called the "Sino Korean Medical Students Conference (SKMSC)".This photo was from the opening ceremony of the First EAMSC, provided by Jongmin Lee who was the Korean host of the conference.
