Graduate Medical Sciences believes that an enriching educational experience is strengthened by diversity of thought, which in turn drives the forces of innovation. Our Community Catalyst Center (C3) opened its doors in August 2021 with the goal of fostering holistic success for the diverse GMS student community. C3 helps students acclimate to Boston and the Medical Campus and adjust to the advancing academics of graduate school while gaining a sense of belonging early in the programs at GMS. This center welcomes all GMS students, including international, first-generation college graduates, students of color, LGBTQIA+, veterans and military-affiliated students. C3 develops community among peers across GMS programs by providing resources, events, and workshops that support and help students thrive.
