MAPS provides mentorship, shadowing, and volunteer opportunities for minority students. We also host the largest pre-health conference in Seattle and have bimonthly meetings where members can network with healthcare professionals.
Our Mission: MAPS at the University of Washington is dedicated to fostering a community of underrepresented pre-medical students and providing members with knowledge and experiences needed to be socially conscious healthcare professionals.
Established in 1999, UW MAPS is a chapter of the national organization Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students. UW MAPS is affiliated with the parent groups, the National Medical Association and the Student National Medical Association (SNMA).
UW MAPS is one of the most active university chapters in the nation. We hold the Region 1 MAPS chapter of the year for the years 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009.
