URMC Graduate Student Society

Run by graduate students, for graduate students at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

About Us

The Graduate Student Society is the coordinating student body charged with representing all students enrolled in the graduate programs at the University of Rochester, School of Medicine and Dentistry. We monitor issues of importance to the graduate student community, represent the concerns of graduate students to University administration, and advocate for changes to enhance the quality of graduate education. We also serve as a liaison among the student populations of the graduate programs and sponsor academic and social events of interest to the graduate student community.

Member Benefits

All graduate students are welcome to join GSS. GSS Members can help plan, organize, and suggest new events. We meet the second Friday of every month!
