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.

Together, At Last

May 26, 2022

2022 grads celebrate success while striving for change in a challenging time.

A sunny, warm spring day, replete with chirping birds and flowers in full bloom, was a fitting backdrop for a celebration years in the making, as graduates of Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine gathered with faculty, family, and friends for an in-person Class Day on the HMS Quad.

The Promise of Regeneration

May 4, 2022

HMS grad Jennifer Cloutier has a habit of pushing limits.

When Jennifer Cloutier receives her MD from Harvard Medical School in May, it will be 12 years since she won a Canadian national waterskiing championship.

Although that feat alone is impressive, it’s even more extraordinary because the competition was designed for individuals with disabilities, and because of her lower-body paralysis, Cloutier, now 30, performed tricky slalom turns and acrobatics from a special seat bolted to her skis.

The Eyes Have It

HMS grad Sameen Meshkin sees residency in ophthalmology as way to continue serving.

Sheer excitement is an understatement when it comes to describing the joy that Ryan Sameen Meshkin felt upon matching to a residency near Boston where he will be able to continue serving after graduation from Harvard Medical School with his MD this May.
