The Pre-Professional Medical Association at Nicholls State University is a student organization dedicated to informing and empowering future medical professionals. This mission is accomplished by offering students opportunities to volunteer in the community, providing information about scholarship and graduate school applications, and building a support network between members. Throughout each semester, several successful medical professionals from various disciplines attend PMA meetings to give guest lectures and provide insight into their role in the medical field.

Students of any classification may join by contacting Ms. Christie Landry, advisor.
