LMSA is a student run organization made up of medical students and undergraduates who are destined to improve the health of our communities through mentorship, outreach and service. Our goal with this section is to provide you with support and resources that will help you along your path to higher education in the health sciences. You will find some AMAZING resources on the right sidebar. The PreMedGuide is invaluable, so make sure to check it out!
Although we focus on the path to Medical School, please know that the following are other possibilities for your future career:
- Physician Assistant (PA)
- Public Health
- Physical Therapy (DPT)
- Occupational Therapy
- Psychology/Clinical Social Work
- Medical Science Research (PhD)
Please know that no matter how hard it can seem that it is to get in, and stay in, medical school, you CAN do it!! Many current medical students and successful doctors did not have perfect grades in undergrad. Some may have had to apply to medical school multiple times before getting in. Every path is unique and that’s the beautiful part about it. Many people have been able to do it, especially with the support of LMSA. So, don’t give up, it can be done! And….
We are here for YOU!
We are happy to answer any questions you have and put you in touch with a local LMSA chapter near you. Make sure you take advantage of your local mentorship program! Make the most of your mentor-mentee relationship and of this program!
