Multicultural Association of Pre-medical Students (MAPS)

Formerly, the Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students (1999-2009)

The Multicultural Association of Premedical Students (MAPS) is an academic support group that motivates, encourages, and prepares premedical students (undergraduates, post-baccalaureate or graduate students) for applying to medical school. Students from minority groups or under-served areas are provided mentors, shadowing opportunities, community service involvement, premedical resource materials, and additional academic guidance to enhance them as they become competitive medical school applicants. The ultimate goal of MAPS is to increase the number of competitive medical school applicants and to diversify medical school enrollment and the health professional workforce.

The Minority Association of Premedical Students is the associate chapter of the Student National Medical Association. University of Louisville SNMA members provide mentoring and support for MAPS members.
