|Academic Affairs Committee|
The Academic Affairs committee was established to develop and maintain SNMA resources designed to assist the general membership in their educational endeavors. Since the “S” in SNMA stands for Student, we work to ensure that you have the opportunities and tools needed to succeed during medical school. We achieve this goal by keeping the membership updated on changes made in medical education nationally including but not limited to the implementation of the 2020 Single Accreditation GME merger, changes within USMLE and COMLEX testing, and new updates on The Matching process. Academic Affairs also maintains a resource handbook of internship, fellowship/research opportunities, research electives, and scholarships.
This 2019-2020 Academic year, our additional endeavors include creating a pipeline program for underrepresented medical students who have taken academic leave or have left medical school before graduating. We would like SNMA to be a place where all those who joined can feel welcomed to share their success, struggles, and alternate routes in their individual journeys. This program will ensure that all those taking time off or leave will still have access to the medical field and means of repaying debt incurred while in medical school. In addition, we are working to create and M1-M4 resource guide and Bootcamp for students who maybe struggle in academics in partnership with some of our top academic partnerships. Another additional goal of ours is to revive specialty interest groups to help our M3s-M4s eliminate some of the guesswork that goes on with figuring out how to have a competitive application for the specialty you are interested in. Lastly we will be creating a mental health platform to provide real insight on what’s going with our students and offer encouragement and resources for students who need them.
If you are interested in learning more about our initiatives or helping implement them, we charge you to join the Academic Affairs committee!
