Welcome to Region VI
Welcome! Often imitated, never duplicated, Region VI aka The Dynasty, is comprised of SNMA and MAPS chapters in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Region VI is also home to one of the two founding chapters of the SNMA, the Howard University College of Medicine. Since its founding in 1964, the SNMA has successfully supported and increased the amount of underrepresented minority medical students across the country and beyond. With a rich history of leadership, service, scholarship, and achievement, members of Region VI are deeply engaged in fulfilling the mission and values of the Student National Medical Association. Follow us as we take on the task of becoming clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious physicians of color!
About Our Region

Liaison, Secretary, Treasurer, and Committee Chairs (corresponding to national committees). Each region hosts an annual Regional Conference at which a regional meeting is held. Each region has its own Constitution and Bylaws, which must
be held in accordance with and not in violation of the Constitution and Bylaws of National SNMA. Region VI is comprised of chapters from District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
