Welcome SNMA/LMSA 2014
This year SNMA (Student National Medical Association) and LMSA (Latino Medical Student Association) have decided to join forces to accomplish the goals of both organization. We believe in strength in numbers. Ultimately, both groups have many of the same goals in mind and can benefit from this partnership. As a united board we came together to make up goals for the upcoming calendar year. They include:
Recruitment of minority medical students
Mentorship (both mentoring our successors and being mentored by our predecessors)
Strengthening University Program and College Program relations
Our inaugural event as a new board, the Minority Mentor Match Program Speed Mentoring Event, was a success. We had close to 40 students and physicians come together for an engaging and fulfilling event that we hope helps to facilitate the creation of a number of long lasting mentoring relationships.
We would love to have you all involved in our future plans and events. SNMA/LMSA is not just an organization for minority students. Though our mission is to support current and future underrepresented minority students, address the needs of underserved communities, increase the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians we hope people of all ethnicities and from all backgrounds will help us accomplish our goals.
