Recognizing the challenges faced by minority students, the Student National Podiatric Medical Association (SNPMA) was established to identify and resolve relevant issues.

Each college of Podiatric Medicine has its own SNPMA Chapter which is under the oversight of the National Elected body.

Through the existence of SNPMA, a positive environment for professional interactions is developed and mentoring opportunities are cultivated.
