Join this Project

Help us send our pre-medical students to the Student National Medical Association Conferences. This project will enable driven and intelligent students the opportunity to learn from leaders in medicine.

About our Project

This project was created to send minority students to the regional and national Student National Medical Association (SNMA) conferences. These conferences are the perfect place to be for any pre-medical student. There will be breakout sessions, networking events, and over 200 exhibitors. There will be current medical students and physicians to learn from. The conferences also allow us to present any research projects we’ve completed. 

Funds will be used for conference admission, travel, and hotel. There will be many workshops to better equip students to be leaders of our pre-medical and STEM community at UAFS. We seek to provide a vibrant community of pre-medical-focused young adults to UAFS who will give back more than they are given. These two conferences will provide the opportunities and environment to influence our representatives at these events to be the best they can be. This will aid in creating a culture of excellence back on campus that will impact both current and future students at UAFS. 

"MAPS has given me opportunities in college I never would have experienced had I not decided to join this organization. Sharing common interests with fellow peers has given me a sense of community and has made the road to medical school so much easier!"

- Emma Booker, MAPS Vice President

"The goal of MAPS is to provide underrepresented pre-medical students with knowledge and experiences that they may not otherwise be able to achieve. This will strengthen and diversify the medical workforce and allow for cultural competence in the next generations of medical professionals. Attending the regional and national conferences hosted by the Student National Medical Association (SNMA), the partner organization of MAPS, will allow UAFS students to network with students and professionals in medical fields and provide a wealth of experiences that would not otherwise be available. It is a critical opportunity for our students to grow as pre-medical students and contribute locally, regionally, and nationally in their areas of interest."

- Dr. Jordan Mader, MAPS Advisor
