MISSION: The mission of the Council of Young Filipinx Americans in Medicine (CYFAM) is to promote the leadership development of young Filipinx American physicians and trainees, reinforce the educational pipeline, and address structural inequities in health through Filipinx American advocacy, scholarship, and community partnership.   

  

VISION: CYFAM’s vision is to embolden leaders to amplify the voice of our members, patients, and community. We will unify the diverse lived experiences of the young Filipinx American physician community. We will equip and empower every Filipinx American medical student, trainee, and physician to be an effective change agent in tackling our community's most pressing health priorities.
