Second Look Weekend at the Jacobs School of Medicine is an effort put forth in partnership with the local chapters of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) and the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) as well as the Office of Medical Admissions.
This year, Second Look Weekend will be held virtually on Saturday, April 17th and Sunday, April 18th.
The hope of this weekend is to support and welcome accepted students that are underrepresented in medicine and to build an early community for these students here in the city of Buffalo.
SNMA and LMSA share similar values with commitments to supporting current and future underrepresented minority medical students, addressing the needs of underserved communities, and increasing the number of clinically excellent, culturally sensitive, and socially conscious physicians. Here at Buffalo, the SNMA chapter in collaboration with LMSA and the Office of Medical Admissions is heavily involved in the recruitment of underrepresented minority students through Interviewee Welcome on Interview days, Second Look Weekend, and ongoing communication with accepted and prospective students.
We know both in clinical practice and medical education, diversity makes us stronger and better for our patients and their families. We hope that with our constant support, SNMA and LMSA is able to have considerable contribution in making the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences mirror the diverse landscape of Buffalo, and cement its mission to the attention and promise of healthy equity in the Buffalo area.
