More than 800 students are enrolled in school of medicine graduate programs. In addition, there are 480 medical students and 1,400 public health students in the adjacent school of public health, which offers Ph.D., M.P.H. and combined degree programs.

Graduate Student Groups
Graduate student groups offer opportunities for students to network with peers and administration. For information on additional Graduate Student Groups, please review the most up-to-date GSA's student group list.
School of medicine students can join the Graduate Student Association. The GSA’s primary purpose is to act as a liaison between the graduate student body and the school of medicine administration. We communicate the student body’s wishes and needs to the faculty and administration while conveying institutional ideals and standards to students. Currently, we have an M.A./Ph.D. committee and Student Assistance Program committee, and we hold graduation meetings and meetings concerning health care. In addition, we organize many social events and lectures throughout the year and fund travel awards and recognized student groups. Our goal is to educate and unite the graduate student.
