Welcome to the Student National Medical Association (SNMA)! Here is a brief description about us, more of which can be found at our national organization’s website.
“The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is the nation’s oldest and largest student organization focused on the needs and concerns of medical students of color. Membership includes more than 8,000 medical students, pre-medical students, residents and physicians. Established in 1964 by medical students from Howard University and Meharry medical schools, the SNMA boasts over 40 years of service to underserved communities and medical students.
SNMA chapters based at allopathic and osteopathic medical schools throughout the nation and at some colleges implement our programs and activities locally. SNMA programs are designed to serve the health needs of underserved communities and communities of color. In addition, SNMA is dedicated both to ensuring that medical education and services are culturally sensitive to the needs of diverse populations and to increasing the number of African-American, Latino, and other students of color and entering and completing medical school.”
We welcome all students at Touro University from all programs to join us in our cause to advocate for minority students in healthcare professions.
