Office of Student Affairs

Student Organizations



The School of Medicine has a wide range of organizations for students to join. SOM student organizations are under the umbrella of the Medical Student Advisory Council and must follow its guidelines in order to receive funding through MSAC.

Additionally, students are encouraged to explore the options offered through Student Life. All student organizations must be approved through the UMKC Office of Student Involvement and should have a faculty and staff advisor. For more information about the approval process, please consult the guidelines found at http://www.umkc.edu/getinvolved/. In addition to the access to student activity fees, student recognition allows organizations:

  • Use of space at the School of Medicine
  • Advising support
  • Inclusion of events in the Student Affairs Announcements
  • Public relations support
  • Bulletin board space
  • Leadership training
