Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS)

MAPS is targeted towards underrepresented undergraduate students interested in the health professions (including Allied Health professions). Through a partnership between local SNMA (Student National Medical Association) chapters and other undergraduate students interested in health-related careers, the MAPS program aims to increase the matriculation of underrepresented students into health professions and related programs. This partnership primarily serves as an academic support system that provides information on how undergraduates may establish themselves as competitive candidates for health professions programs early in their undergraduate career. MAPS meets at least once a block and the meetings are open to anyone, but especially for underrepresented minority students interested in pursuing a career in health.

MAPS Co-Presidents: Sidharth Tripathi '17 (Pre-Med) and Cheryn Aouaj '17 (Pre-Med)

Pre-Veterinary Club (PVC)

Pre-Vet Co-Chairs: Kate McGinn '18, Danielle Devers '17
