Stanford American Indigenous Medical Students
SAIMS provides opportunities to exchange academic and professional information pertaining to the health care needs of Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiians. SAIMS has traditionally played a large role in recruiting junior college and university level Native American, Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian premedical students to the Stanford University School of Medicine. Our recruitment efforts include, but are not limited to, participating in the organization of the annual SUMMA conference, speaking at local colleges and high schools, volunteering in Bay Area Indian Health Clinics, and mentoring Stanford undergraduates. In addition, SAIMS recruits speakers to campus in order to raise awareness of traditional perspectives and health issues. Lastly, SAIMS participates in the annual powwow (attendance 30,000) by assisting in the first aid booth as well as helps the Arbor Screen Team in screening individuals for cholesterol, blood pressure, and glucose levels.
