Minorities Association of Pre-medical Students (MAPS)

The Minority Association of Premedical Students (MAPS) is an academic support group that motivates, encourages and prepares pre-medical students to become competitive applicants for medical school or another health field program. The Minority Association of Pre-medical students is the associate chapter of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA). Go to www.snma.org for more information. Through our community service and our dedication to eliminating ethnic health disparities, the Minority Association of Pre-medical Students (MAPS) strives to provide Dartmouth students with a larger sense of being in the difficult world of preparing for medical school. We hold campus events to provide guidance to students, maintain a mentoring program to pair undergraduates to minority med students, and provide funding for students to attend conferences about health disparities and other concerns in the fields of medicine and health. The ultimate goal of MAPS is to produce more competitive health profession applicants and to diversify health professional school enrollment and the health professions workforce. This will be accomplished by better preparing pre-health students who may be from an under represented minority group, a medically under served area and/or from a disadvantaged background.
