  • Latino Medical Students Association

    The Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) unites and empowers medical students through service, mentorship and education to advocate for the health of the Latino community. Our objectives serve to unify all Latino medical students into one organization, to provide a voice for underrepresented medical students, to actively promote recruitment and retention of Latino students at all levels, and to educate medical students on Latino health issues. We also strive as an organization to advocate for the rights of Latinos in health care, to provide leadership opportunities for Latinos, and to promote volunteerism in the Latino community. Past events include:
    Medical Spanish
    Guac Off
    Salsa Night
