Diversity

Student Organizations that Foster Diversity

The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville offers several student organizations that foster diversity.

Global Health Interest Group

The Global Health Interest Group aims to promote student interest in health advocacy and aid for the developing world. In addition to providing lunch-and-learns, this year our group aims to increase fundraising for global health relief and volunteering.

Latino Medical Student Association

The mission of the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) is to "unite and empower Latino (and non-Latino) medical students through service, mentorship, and education to advocate for the health of the Latino community." As such, we hope to engage and empower Greenville County's Latino community through volunteerism, advocacy, and health promotion, among other things. Furthermore, LMSA plans on pairing with several organizations that share our goal in order to more actively and hollistically improve the lives of those we serve.

LGBTQ Health Interest Group

The purpose of the LGBTQ interest group is to promote the health and well-being of LGBTQ patients by educating future and current healthcare providers via focus groups, panel discussions, literature reviews and/or other events. The group aims to foster healthy dialogue between colleagues of all backgrounds, and we encourage everyone to join.

Student National Medical Association (SNMA)

Student National Medical Association (SNMA) is committed to supporting current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians.

 

Membership is open to any student at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville.

In addition to the student organizations listed, students have the opportunity to start new organizations to align with their desired interests.
