Leadership and Involvement

Student Council

The College of Medicine Student Council (StuCo for short) is a self-governing body that represents the medical students. StuCo meets monthly to address needs and issues, coordinate the community outreach program, plan social activities, and manage the student fee budget.

Students also have an opportunity to represent the College of Medicine at national, regional, and local meetings and conferences, including the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical Association.

Class Officers

Class Officers serve as a liaison between the College of Medicine staff, the HSC Student Government Association and their class. Officers host social events, plan Match Day and find opportunities for their class to participate in community service.

Interest Groups

Each residency specialty has a Residency Interest Group where they host meetings that explore possible career paths, bring in guest speakers and offer Post-Match advice for other rising classes beginning the Matching process.
