The Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students is a pipeline program sponsored by SNMA (Student National Medical Association), to directly serve minority students through mentorship, education, and guidance. The mission of MAPS is to help minority pre-med students explore various opportunities within the health profession by implementing informational programs, providing helpful academic resources, and organizing volunteer opportunities.
The purpose of our organization is to offer resources, support, and information to minority students that are interested in health care. We will also provide various opportunities for pre-med students, health professionals, and graduate students to network and interact with one another. MAPS organizes several important workshops around the year for pre-medical students such as a Mock Trial, which allows pre-med students to get a feel for how admission interviews occur and what the question/answer series is like in real-life, as well as many engaging and informative events. We also provide students with volunteer and research opportunities throughout the year.
