Clubs & organizations
Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine recognizes the contributions of student clubs and organizations that enhance the quality of student life and the college community. Clubs and organizations offer students the opportunity to participate in academic, cultural, social and athletic activities that are consistent with the development of knowledge, skills, values and attitudes expected from healthcare professionals. Numerous standing clubs currently exist; however, the Office of Student Affairs is always interested in meeting student needs and works collaboratively with the Medical Student Council, the governing board, to welcome suggestions for starting new clubs.
Activities and functions of student clubs and organizations are considered college activities and therefore must:
- Be registered with the Medical Student Council and approved by the Office of Student Affairs.
- Function in an organized manner consistent with the values, identity and mission of Geisinger Commonwealth.
- Comply with policies and procedures of the college.
- Be open to all students currently enrolled at Geisinger Commonwealth.
- Complete at least one service project per academic year.
- Have at least 10 enrolled students as members.
Clubs and organizations are an integral part of student life as they reach the diverse interests of both medical students and master's students.
