  • About the event

    The purpose of the conference is to bring together high school students, premedical students, medical students, graduating physicians, residents, practicing physicians, and all other health professionals interested in healthcare for and by Latinos and other underserved groups in their communities. The conference will include a series of workshops on the healthcare needs of the Latino community, student leadership training, clinical skills, medical school and residency application panels, networking, recruiting, and healthcare policy. We are expecting 500 attendees.

Your partnership will assist our members to continue their endeavors in achieving excellence in leadership, service, community outreach, and meaningful dialogue.

    LMSA National

    The Latino medical student network was created through collaboration between regional Latino medical student groups to fill the need for a central national core for unified targeted efforts. In 1987, the union formalized into the concept of the National Network of Latin American Students (NNLAMS). In 2005, a landmark year for NNLAMS, the organization held its first national conference in conjunction with the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA). The event brought in students from all over the country and set a venue to reflect upon the years’ work, network with other students and health professionals, and set the pace for the future operations and vision of NNLAMS. In an effort to unify all of the Latino medical students from different regions under the same title, the name of the national organization was officially changed to LMSA in 2010 at the first independent LMSA national conference held in Chicago at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Henceforth, the five regions will be referred to as LMSA Northeast, LMSA Midwest, LMSA Southeast, LMSA Southwest, and LMSA West. Today, LMSA National currently has over 2,500 medical students, 7,000 pre-medical student members, and 5,000 physician alumni in our network.
