Student Council

The HMS/HSDM Student Council serves as the student government for both Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. In addition to the Student Council, approximately 50 Council-approved student groups receive funding from monies allocated for this purpose to a central Student Council budget. The Council has developed guidelines and regulations to which its members and affiliated groups adhere. The Office of Student Affairs provides direct administrative and organizational support to the Council and other student organizations and is a liaison between these groups and the HMS and Harvard University administration.

Student Groups

There are multitudes of student groups at HMS, known as Student Interest Groups. As student interests change, new groups form and others disband. Starting up a new student group is very easy and is encouraged. In addition to the groups on the Longwood Campus, facilities and organizations on Harvard’s Cambridge campus are also open to medical students.

They studied medicine, and suddenly COVID too

May 11, 2021
Students entering Harvard Medical School expect a rigorous learning experience. For upperclassmen working rotations in area hospitals, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken this rigor to a new level, and the experience has only emboldened their commitment to medicine.

Pandemic Project: Student Constance Wu on what inspired a COVID-19 children’s book

March 11, 2021
More than 160 graduating Harvard Medical School students will match to their residency programs this spring and move on to the next phase of their medical careers after graduation. Constance Wu, an MD student in the joint Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program, is one of them. She found time in the midst of the past year and her demanding studies to, among other things, illustrate a children’s book on COVID-19 written by classmate Katherine Redfield. Wu talked with HM News about what the past year has been like and what she’s hoping for the future.
