The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) boasts over 50 years of service to underserved communities and medical students. The University of Maryland Chapter of SNMA is primarily focused on educating, serving and empowering underserved communities through health education, screening, and youth enrichment programs. Community service is the heart and soul of the Student National Medical Association. The youth enrichment programs include: Minority Association of Premedical Students (MAPS), where SNMA members act as mentors to pre-medical undergraduates and post-baccalaureate students in efforts to increase the medical school matriculation rates of underrepresented minorities; Health Professions Recruitment Exposure Program (HPREP); and Youth Science Enrichment Program (YSEP). In addition to these programs, the SNMA is committed to providing academic and social support to its members, ensuring that medical education and services are culturally sensitive to the needs of diverse populations and to increasing the number of African-American, Hispanic, and other students of color entering and completing medical school.
