Student National Medical Association

The University of Toledo is proud to support diverse student organizations. On the UT Health Science Campus, the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) — the nation’s oldest and largest organization representing the needs and concerns of underrepresented minority (Black, Hispanic, and Native American) medical students — is strongly represented and connected to UT administrators, faculty, staff, and local community leadership.

Founded in 1964 by students at Howard and Meharry College of Medicine, the SNMA has more than 160 chapters nationwide. There are more than 5,000 members, including medical students, premedical students, physicians, and allied health professions students. SNMA’s goal is to bridge the heath disparities gap through recruitment and retention of underrepresented minority students. SNMA also incorporates a strong community service initiative by providing mentoring, health-care education, and science awareness and academic enrichment activities to students at the elementary, junior high, high school and college levels.

For further information on the SNMA, contact the College of Medicine Admissions Office at 419.383.3680
