Why join the SNMA? For more than fifty years, SNMA has been the leading organization in promoting increased enrollment and retention of minority medical students. Our signature pipeline programs are designed to ensure that future generations of medical graduates are not only diverse, but culturally competent.

SNMA plays a vital role in continuing to fill the ranks of professionals equipped to address healthcare concerns. SNMA's dedication to producing diverse and culturally competent physicians fuels its service to medically underserved communities. These communities may currently constitute the minority of the overall population but make up the majority of individuals struggling to maintain good health. Our service programs seek to positively affect major healthcare threats to these communities.

Your involvement empowers our organization to continue implementing programs that will diversify medicine and, as a result, benefit underserved communities and society at large. As a student association, SNMA relies upon the passion of its membership to perpetuate and strengthen its efforts. Are you interested in being a part of the SNMA mission?
