Welcome to the Official Homepage of Region III of the Student National Medical Association!!

From the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado all the way down to the bountiful bayou of Louisiana, we represent what is known as "The TRIFECTA". Our illustrious region encompasses the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Colorado, Mississippi, Colorado, and New Mexico. "Every great thing comes in three" and our region is nothing less of that expression!

Region III is home to a patient population that has unique needs and often ranks highest among most health care disparities. Through grassroots programming and community service, the students, residents, and senior physcians of Region III are truly committed to reversing negative statistics into positive outcomes of well-rounded health.In addition, we hold education, training, and mentoring to the utmost importance.

Students ranging from elementary school to 4th year of medical school have the opportunity to be exposed to aspects of the medical profession that exist beyond the classroom and hospital settings. SNMA Region III acknowledges the social determinants of health and is committed to enriching the training of culturally competent and socially concious physicians. Please take a few minutes to explore all of the great things that are going on in Region III and let me know if there is ANYTHING that I can assist you with!

Most notably, The LSU Health Sciences Center Shreveport School of Medicine's Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is proud to announce the 2018 Region III Medical Education Conference (RMEC). The event will be sponsored by the LSUHSC-Shreveport Office of Diversity Affairs on November 16-18th, 2018 in Shreveport, Louisiana.

``<3 The theme of this year's conference is "Forging the Future of Medicine: Servant Leadership in Healthcare" and it is meant to highlight our commitment to the state of health care for all, especially the medically underserved. We aim to provide a venue where emerging healthcare professionals can grow in their professional and leadership development while gaining the necessary tools to be the best advocates for their future patients.

Members should also save the date for our 2019 Annual Medical Education Conference (AMEC) being hosted in Philadelphia, PA. The 55th AMEC will take place April 17-21, 2019. More information to follow and members will be allowed to register starting October 1st, 2018!
