Student National Medical Association (SNMA)

The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is the nation's oldest and largest student organization focusing on the interests and concerns of students of color.

Established in 1964, by medical students at Howard University and Meharry Medical College, SNMA continues to advocate for the institution of culturally competent medical education for medical students and culturally sensitive services for underserved communities. 

SNMA’s national initiatives include access to health care, health inequalities, and diversity in higher education amongst many others.  The UMass Chan Medical School is in good company with Tufts University, Boston University, Harvard University, Dartmouth Medical School, the University of Vermont, the New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, Brown University and Yale University, as a part of New England's Region VII.

Our chapter participates in a variety of community service initiatives, including The Mosaic Network, which serves as a health outreach program to bring health discussions and health screenings to community members in Worcester.
