The Wake Forest University School of Medicine’s Student National Medical Association (SNMA) Chapter is committed to supporting current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent, and socially conscious physicians.

By reaching out to disadvantaged and underrepresented premedical students in undergraduate institutions across North Carolina, the Wake Forest School of Medicine chapter of the SNMA strives to encourage academic excellence, cultivate professional skills and provide mentorship and guidance.

Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is the nation’s oldest and largest independent, student-run organization focused on the needs and concerns of medical students of color. Membership includes over 6,000 medical students, premedical students, residents and physicians.

Established in 1964 by medical students from Howard University School of Medicine and Meharry Medical College, SNMA boasts more than 50 years of service to underserved communities and medical students. SNMA is dedicated both to ensuring culturally sensitive medical education and services, as well as increasing the number of African-American, Latino and other students of color entering and completing medical school.
