Graduate Medical Sciences Student Organization

The Graduate Medical Sciences Student Organization (GMSSO) represents 900+ students from over 30 different PhD and Master’s degree programs & departments within the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences. 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.

Each program has two official voting representatives and we encourage everyone to attend monthly meetings and events. Come join your awesome student body, give your program a voice, and get involved in the local community!

Our Three Pillars this Year:

Diversity & Inclusivity

Community & Service

Health & Wellbeing

Our Key Initiatives:

  • Increase community involvement and unification at BUMC.
  • Provide group volunteer outreach opportunities in our neighborhood.
  • Provide professional development opportunities that prepare GMS students for their future endeavors.
