UCI School of Medicine Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) and Student National Medical Association (SNMA) are proud to announce our 17th Annual Pre-Health Conference at the UC Irvine undergraduate campus on November 3, 2018!!
The theme for this year is – The Minority Majority: Our Road to Success in the Medical Field
The path to becoming a health professional is not an easy one. Having mentors to guide you through the process is essential. In past conferences we have stressed the importance of mentorship and will continue to provide opportunity for attendees to meet and connect with potential mentors, as well as information regarding applications, personal statements, and interviews.
However, the events and changes that have occurred in the past year have made it clear that mentors are only part of what will make young pre-health professionals successful. We have come to understand that a strong support system built with a diverse group of individuals is just as important to ensuring minority students are able to reach their goals.
Our conference planning committee hopes that this year will highlight the importance of diversity and the benefits of embracing the ideas and cultures of others. We will provide attendees with information on how to achieve success and how to support one another on the difficult path to a health profession.
We look forward to meeting you!
