Event description
SNMA Region 1 Presents: #WhatADoctorLooksLike

About this Event

The Mighty Region 1 is excited to present our 2019 Regional Medical Education Conference (RMEC) hosted by The University of Arizona - Tuscon College of Medicine! RMEC is a region’s annual, student-led conference initiative that seeks to equip SNMA members, community members and pre-health students with the knowledge and skills to succeed and thrive in their academic and professional pursuits. Themed "#WhatADoctorLooksLike", the Region 1 RMEC will examine how the societal mold of what doctors are ‘supposed’ to look like was created and explore ways in which underrepresented minority students can break this mold. Attendees are encouraged to engage in target dialogues and discussions, clinical skills workshops and an exhibitor fair for pre-medical and medical students alike.

About the SNMA

The Student National Medical Association is a national, student-led non-profit organization committed to supporting current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians.
