Meet our Students

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 Organizations

There are multitudes of student organizations 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.
