Welcome to the Latino Medical Student Association Midwest

We are a medical student-driven non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare for Latino communities and mentoring future physicians in the Midwest and the rest of the US.

Our Mission: The Latino Medical Student Association exists to unite and empower current and future physicians through service, mentorship, and education to advocate for the improved health of the Hispanic & Latina/o/x community in the United States.


Our Vision: We envision a world in which improved health outcomes for all patients arise as a result of the following:

  • Increased representation and support of healthcare professionals from backgrounds underrepresented among the medical workforce;
  • Increased awareness of critical issues affecting the health of the Hispanic, Latina/o/x, and other marginalized communities; and
  • Increased efforts to reduce disparities in the ways patients of color experience the American healthcare system.
