Latino Medical Student Association


The Latino Medical Student Association charter is here to represent, support, educate, and unify Latino medical students.

At Baylor College of Medicine, LMSA members host lunches open to all students where medical Spanish is taught and health disparities are discussed. LMSA also engages in community service, primarily in Houston Latino communities. Mentorship is an important component of LMSA, and members routinely engage with undergraduate students in the transition to medical school.

Further, LMSA hosts several events with other local chapters, allowing Houston Latino medical students to meet and socialize.
