Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students (MAPS)

An Affiliation of the Graduate Biomedical Student Association (GBSA)

Purpose of MAPS & Mission Statement:

The Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students is a national organization that exists as individual self-governing bodies of students organized into chapters that overall seek to support the endeavors of ambitious pre-medical students under the guidance of regional and national bylaws.

The mission of M.A.P.S. at RowanGSBS is to foster a relationship between pre-med students and medical/professional students and provide an avenue for guidance, resources and support to those who are interested in medicine and health care related fields with a particular emphasis in serving the medically underserved and minority populations.

Benefits of membership include but are not limited to the following:
Information about MCAT prep, panel discussions w/ medical students, networking events w/ both physicians and esteemed faculty, community service, interview and application tips etc,. M.AP.S .can be viewed much like a pre-professional association at a typical undergraduate institution. However, through our direct affiliation with the Student National Medical Association at RowanSOM, and our existence as a graduate school organization this chapter is very unique.
