Student Life

WMed encourages students to be active learners both in and out of the classroom, and has created several avenues for students to engage with their interests. Student interest groups and student organizations provide opportunities for our students to practice their skills, develop as leaders, and build relationships with physicians who can provide mentorship and career counseling. WMed also offers student membership on institutional committees, student council, wellness programming, and honor societies for students to get involved. Whether students are looking for a sense of community, want to cultivate their skills as a physician or leader, or hope to make a positive impact at the medical school, they have ample opportunities at WMed and the Student Life team is here to support our students.
