      Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS)

      The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS) is a multicultural pre-health organization. As a student group, M.A.P.S. serves as a pipeline and mentorship program to bridge gaps for underrepresented students who wish to enter medical school, or other health-related fields. M.A.P.S. provides knowledge, skills, and experience for students with aspirations of entering a health-related profession. While our primary focus is preparation for medical school, participation in our professional development programs and community service such mock interviews and health fairs can be equally beneficial to all. M.A.P.S is Barry’s newest pre-health student organization (established in fall 2011) and has members from both undergraduate (Biology, Chemistry, Nursing) and graduate (Biomedical Sciences) programs. Membership is open to all students who are interested in gaining clinical experience and medical school insight, regardless of your area of study.
