Welcome to CMU College of Medicine Student Organizations
and Special Interest Groups
Getting involved with interest groups is a great way for CMU College of Medicine students to learn more about various careers in medicine, network with faculty, and other CMED students within the campus community. Special interest groups add to the academic and social development of our students experience and we welcome you to be a part of those experiences. CMED has a diverse variety of different committees, interest groups and community activities for you to consider. If you would like to start your own, just stop in to the Office of Student Affairs and we'd be more than happy to advise you on how to do so, or complete the Student Interest Group Registration Form at the bottom of this page and return it to the Office of Student Affairs.
