Student National Medical Association

The Student National Medical Association (SNMA) has organizations at the local (UK), state and national levels and is the oldest and largest student-run organization focused on the needs and concerns of medical students of underrepresented race/ethnic identities. The mission further focuses on meeting the health needs of underserved communities. 


UK College of Medicine SNMA members represent and stand up for an ever-resonating message on campus and beyond.
