Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (M.A.P.S) represents the undergraduate subsection of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA). This mission of the SNMA is to “support current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians” with the ultimate objective of increasing the number of physicians who are minorities entering the workforce and diversifying the face of medicine.

MAPS is open to people of all colors and backgrounds so long as their mission aligns with those of the SNMA namely the desire to fight inequities in medicine and serve underserved populations.
