Clubs & Activities for MD Students
NYU School of Medicine’s Student Council hosts more than 70 clubs and activities for medical students, funded through student fees. Clubs and activities provide opportunities to mentor or network with other students, delve deeper into clinical studies, discuss and influence healthcare policy, and just have fun.
Students can find clubs and activities in many areas of interest, including athletics, community service, medical education, social activities, diversity, and student life. Some of the general interest clubs include Chamber Musicians in Medicine, Classical Arts Appreciation, and Physicians for Human Rights.
Our Office of Student Affairs works with the Student Council and club leaders to develop club policies, track club activity, and plan programs. See a list of clubs and activities on NYU Engage (Kerberos ID and login required).
If you are interested in starting your own student club or activity, contact your student council representative or fill out a New Club Proposal Form. Both are available through NYU Engage.
The Student Council supports, regulates, funds, and oversees student organizations and activities. Elected members from each class sit on the council, which fosters a cordial student–faculty relationship.
