The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS) The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS) is a student organization that represents future underrepresented medical students. The main interest of MAPS is to create more socially and culturally competent physicians by educating undergraduate pre-health students about social justice issues that underrepresented communities face in healthcare. MAPS also offers mentorship, pre-health workshops, volunteer opportunities, and education about relevant healthcare topics.

The three main goals of MAPS include:
(1) To provide undergraduate pre-health students with knowledge, skills, and experiences that are both prerequisite & concomitant to professional participation in health care fields.
(2) To improve minority student matriculation into all professional health related programs.
(3) To encourage culturally conscious physicians by increasing awareness of social justice issues that underrepresented communities face in healthcare.
