This month’s spotlight features several phenomenal young leaders of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA). Please Visit SNMA’s homepage to learn more about the organization’s mission, history, chapters, community outreach, pipelines, and much more.


“No matter what anyone tells you, the biggest limitations you have are the ones you place on yourself. Make sure you create a positive and encouraging support system for yourself. That means having mentors and coaches on your side. You’ll need people who will tell you what you’re doing right, but you also need people who will help you overcome some of the obstacles that may come your way. Of course, I have to give a shout out to the Student National Medical Association (SNMA), even before I was involved at a leadership capacity, this organization equipped me with tools and resources that helped me apply to medical school in the best way I could.” - Gabriel Felix, MD Candidate and 55th National President of SNMA
