Parent Organization: The Leadership Council for the College of Humanities and Sciences

The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (M.A.P.S.) is an organization established to provide an instrument of academic and emotional support for under-represented groups to pursue a career in the health care profession. Our goals include: serving the health needs of underrepresented communities, educating the community about the importance of health equity, and assisting students in preparing to matriculate into their chosen medical or health associated professional school.


M.A.P.S. is a program sponsored by the Student National Medical Association. SNMA is the oldest and largest medical student organization dedicated to underrepresented or underprivileged pre-health students and underserved communities. Committed to increasing the number of culturally capable and sensitive physicians, the SNMA is also dedicated to the academic and clinical success of medical students and pre-health students. M.A.P.S. is one of the many signature programs SNMA uses to strengthen the educational pipeline that leads from elementary school to professional school.
