Student Groups

Medical student groups at Brown provide endless opportunities to learn, serve, network, lead, create, and relax.

Medical students lead more than 80 organizations and activities that enrich their experiences at Brown. Groups vary from year to year, based on student interest.

All student groups must register with the Office of Student Affairs, which provides overall coordination and support. The Office also manages the Student Group Catalog, which includes descriptions and contact information for all groups.

Advocacy/Service Groups serve others. Some groups partner with local schools, free clinics, or other nonprofits to provide ongoing outreach and service. Many groups target particular communities or health conditions. Several do broader or national advocacy work in health policy or other issues.

Specialty Interest Groups connect students to professional insight, research, networking, and mentoring opportunities in over twenty medical specialties, from Anesthesiology to Urology.

Student Life Groups enhance AMS student life beyond medicine. Share your creativity in AMS journals and other student publications, your thoughts in discussions of books or films, or your voice in musical groups. Exercise through athletic groups or dance teams. Make a difference in the AMS community as part of groups working to improve sustainability, peer support, student health/wellness, or other issues at AMS.

Please contact the Student Senate ([email protected]) or the Office of Student Affairs ([email protected]) with any questions about student groups, including how to form or apply for funding for a new group.
