Graduate Medical Sciences Student Organization
The Graduate Medical Sciences Student Organization (GMSSO) represents 900+ students from over 30 different Ph.D. and Master’s degree programs & departments within 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!
