Purpose

The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (M.A.P.S) is an organization that strives to provide knowledge, skills, and experience to students who have aspirations of entering the health field. The overall goals of M.A.P.S. are:

To serve the health needs of underrepresented communities

To educate people about the importance of health matters

To ensure cultural sensitivity to the needs of a diverse population

To assist students in preparing to matriculate into their chosen medical or health associated professional school

M.A.P.S. is a program sponsored by the Student National Medical Association. SNMA is the oldest and largest medical student organization dedicated to underrepresented or underprivileged pre-health students and underserved communities. Committed to increasing the number of culturally capable and sensitive physicians, the SNMA is also dedicated to the academic and clinical success of medical students and pre-health students. Through signature programs such as M.A.P.S. among many others, the SNMA members work with youth from elementary school to college introducing them to science ad serving as mentors. In this way, the SNMA strengthens the educational pipeline that leads from elementary school to professional school.
