Welcome from the GMSSO

We are here to help students become part of our diverse community. Our purpose is to bring students together from all departments and programs of the Graduate Medical Sciences, to share ideas, address concerns and pursue common student issues with a combined voice.
Red GMSSOHow the GMSSO Works for You!!!

The GMSSO runs social activities and campus-wide social action initiatives.  See our current events calendar.

We also created a GMSSO RedGuide that lists things to do in the area and pertinent information about transportation and the various activities and events that GMS and Boston have to offer. Find us at orientation or email to join the GMSSO.
