Welcome!


The Network of Pre-Medical Students
Mission Statement:

The Network of Pre-Medical Students is Barnard College’s official MAPS chapter. As a registered member of the Student National Medical Association, the organization supports and encourages a diverse group of students, especially students from underrepresented minority groups to pursue their endeavors in the medical field. We would like to enrich the academic, personal, and professional development of women by exploring pertinent issues in health care such as health disparities, the involvement of women in the field of medicine, and the challenges of work/life balance. Through our volunteer work, discussions, and panels, we hope to create the next generation of culturally competent female physicians committed to improving all aspects of medicine, including patient care in underserved communities.
