National Leadership Institutes

The National Leadership Institute (NLI) is held three times per year in conjunction with the Board of Directors Meetings. SNMA and MAPS members from all parts of the country gather for a weekend of educational workshops on leadership training, organizational advancement and project development. During each session, educational tracks are crafted specifically for board members, regional and chapter members at large, and for pre-medical students.



Leadership in Times of Crisis

September 18-20th 2020

Hosted by Michigan State University College of Human Medicine

A Virtual Experience

The Virtual September National Leadership Institute will be hosted by Michigan State University College of Human Medicine September 18-20, 2020! We will be discussing how to hone your leadership skills during a crisis, how to market yourself and share YOUR story within your CV and personal statements, and much more. You will have the opportunity to network with Black Men and Women in Leadership across the nation at our Friday evening virtual get-together. We will hear from thought-provoking leaders who have lived through crises like our keynote speaker, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha. Additionally, in line with the SNMA's heart for service, all attendees will be provided the opportunity to serve communities around the nation through a virtual pipeline mentorship session with elementary, junior high school, and high school students! If you are interested in understanding what it looks like to be a leader on the SNMA's Board of Directors, you will also have the opportunity to sit in on our board meetings that will occur after the main program Saturday and on Sunday. It will be a jam-packed weekend, but we are bringing together a program to leave you inspired to continue down this path of leadership in the medical field. We look forward to seeing you soon!
