Goals: Serve as the research assessment committee to further the work efforts of the SNMA in addressing the need for increased support for and investment in underrepresented minority premedical students, medical students and future physicians. In particular this committee is dedicated to increasing the amount of research specifically reflecting the experiences and concerns of minority medical students, while contributing important data with which to strengthen arguments supporting the need to achieve racial parity in the physician workforce. Additionally, this committee works cooperatively with the Physician-Researcher Initiative Fellow and is charged with the oversight of two of SNMA 's longstanding research programs:
