The MIT Chapter of Minority Association of Pre-medical Students (MAPS), under the guidance of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is committed to supporting under-represented minority pre-health students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. MITMAPS provides a connection for students with interests in science and medicine and grants an opportunity for undergraduate students to come together to design and implement a plan to further pursue a career in medicine. Together we aim to increase the number of clinically excellent and culturally competent conscious medical physicians and scientists, for our nation and the world.
