Annual Medical Education Conference

Washington, DC - April 16 - 20, 2014

The Student National Medical Association celebrates the 50th Anniversary Annual Medical Education Conference (AMEC) April 16-20, 2014 in Washington, DC. Founded in 1964, at Howard and Meharry Medical Colleges, the SNMA is firmly committed to supporting current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of the underserved community, and to increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent, and social conscious physicians.

The 50th Anniversary AMEC theme, "Fifty Years, One Mission: Diversifying the Face of Medicine", serves as the programmatic pinnacle of the commitment SNMA to fulfilling this important mission thus far. The conference program aims to provide attendees with a greater appreciation of the history of the SNMA and the ways in which we can continue to fulfill this mission. With workshops focused on academic success, professional development, community empowerment, and research, attendees will be inspired and motivated to become pioneering physicians of tomorrow, translating what they have learned to impact health disparities and diversify the face of medicine. Upon leaving the conference, each attendee will receive a wealth of resources and knowledge that will secure the mission of SNMA, and inspire our nation's future physicians of color to take SNMA into its next era!
