Looking to join an organization and get involved? Want to see what the 60+ active COM student organizations are all about? Would you like to contact an organization for a speaking opportunity/event? You’ll find the Executive Board members listing & group contact information in the Directory sections below.

For current students, all the resources needed to successfully run your organization, including information on funding, event planning, and marketing can also be found in the sections below. Be sure to review the updated Student Organization Guidelines

Several student organizations have already been formed by M.D. students and more may be created as new healthcare issues and initiatives emerge beyond our current organizations. Any new student organization seeking affiliation with the UCF College of Medicine will be able to submit the New Student Organization Approval Form along with a draft of the proposed constitution for consideration to be added to the M.D. Student Organizations listing. More information can be found under the Forming an Organization section.

COM Student Organization Information Guides

Please click below to access the Student Organization Information Guide. This guide will be updated annually.


The purpose of the College of Medicine M.D. Program Student Council is to provide effective student leadership for the classes and organizations of the College of Medicine M.D. Program, serve as a liaison between students and administration, promote effective and well-rounded medical education, and represent the College of Medicine M.D. Program. More information is provided during new student orientation. The purpose of the Student Professional Conduct Council (SPCC) is to oversee the implementation of the UCF COM Honor Code with emphasis on maintaining the values intrinsic to the role of physician, community leader and medical student.  The SPCC is composed of two student representatives from each class, an SPCC chair, and an advisor from the Office of Student Affairs (Dr. Verduin).  Information on contacting any member of the SPCC can be found on Webcourses.

The Student Services team is your one-stop-shop for planning your event or meeting. Our team will book your event space/room per your request, work with the Facilities, Operations and Systems Engineering teams for any support requests you have, and coordinate with any other departments involved to ensure your event or meeting has everything you need. While student events through individuals or organizations and extracurricular activities are always encouraged, students must inform the Office of Student Affairs of meetings and activities that take place on campus at the College of Medicine.

Step by Step to Planning an Event

Step 1: Check the Student Lounge calendar on Webcourses and select a date and time for your meeting or event that does not conflict with an existing meeting. This policy has been put in place to ensure that students don’t miss out on important and interesting information because of scheduling conflicts. Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Step 2: Submit a Event Reservation Request Form. The information you provide on this survey will be used to book your space/room and coordinate with other supporting offices for things you may need such as: tables, chairs, or AV/Tech support.

Step 3: Wait to receive confirmation that your space/room has been booked. We do our best to book you in your first choice or second choice room/space, but we cannot guarantee availability. If you do not receive a confirmation email, but your event/meeting has been listed on the Student Lounge Webcourses calendar – you’re all set, we just haven’t gotten the chance to email you yet.

Step 4: If you’re part of a student organization ordering items or food this is when you’d submit a PRF (AFTER you have a date for your meeting selected). Please refer to the PRFs section below.

Students can request to reserve the following through the Office of Student Affairs:

    • Classrooms
    • Conference Room
    • SGLs
    • Tavistock Green
    • Team Learning Lab
    • The Atrium
    • The Piazza

Anatomy Lab Requests

For requests to utilize the Anatomy Lab please complete the below form and return it to Jennifer Mark or Dr. Jeffrey Plochocki. Students or Organizations will still be required to inform the Office of Student Affairs of their event.


For requests to utilize the Clinical Skills and Simulation Center, please complete the below form. For more information, please contact COMCSSC@ucf.edu.

Individual student room reservation

For requests to reserve a room for single student use (i.e. advisor meetings, FIRE mentor meetings, etc.), please use the below form.


Below you will find examples of filled out & completed PRFs for the two most commonly used vendors/types of ordering: Publix and Amazon. Note for Publix orders you must order through the Apron’s Event Planners at the Publix at Cornerstone at Lake Hart (the one on Narcoossee & Moss Park Rd – their number is 407-275-5507). All food vendors must be able to accept credit card payments via phone.


Any student organization or individual student with an approved event will be able to request medical coverage. Please note that requests does not automatically guarantee coverage and will be evaluated by need and availability of staff. Please note that the Office of Student Affairs has final approval and publishing authority for all submissions.

For more information, check out the Marketing section of the Student Organization Guidelines.



Any and all fundraising hosted at the College of Medicine or on behalf of a COM entity must be approved through the UCF College of Medicine Office of Development. In partnership with the Office of Students Affairs, Fundraising Guidelines (see below) have been created for all M.D. Student Organizations. Before you plan your fundraiser, please review these guidelines, and submit your proposed fundraiser details to the Office of Student Affairs for review no later than two (2) weeks prior to the proposed fundraiser date. Until written approval is received, please do not solicit contributions for your fundraiser or use the name “UCF College of Medicine” or any University or College logo for any fundraising purposes.

Inactive Organizations (current listing)

The inactive groups listed below have already been established at COM but are not currently active. If you are interested in reactivating a group, please email the Student Services team by using the button below.

The M.D. Student Council, working with the Office of Student Affairs, has completed the process for approving new medical student organizations within the College of Medicine. Please check the Inactive Organizations listing prior to proceeding submission for a new organization.

With majority approval from the members of Student Council and Office of Student Affairs, organizations will be granted a status as a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) of the UCF College of Medicine and will also become eligible to receive funding from UCF COM Student Council funds (note: this is different than becoming a Registered Student Organization through the main campus Office of Student Involvement).

Any organization seeking affiliation with UCF College of Medicine will need to submit all of the following information to Andrew Quigley at Andrew.Quigley@ucf.edu.

New groups are approved by both Student Council and the Associate Dean for Students. New groups that are too similar in mission or goals to current active groups will be denied. Decisions are typically made within three weeks of submission.

If you have an idea for a group similar to one that is currently active, you may inquire with the group on joining and creating a subsection of the main organization.


Do you have pictures of your organization participating at an event or interacting during a meeting? Have just-for-fun student life pictures you’d like to share? or a funny meme relating to med school life?

You can submit your content for the Student Lounge Digital TV Signage here using the SL Digital Signage Submission survey, or scan one of the QR codes from the fliers in the Student Lounge to access the submission survey.

Need help finding a speaker for your group?

Please contact Dr. Soraya Smith at medstudentaffairs@ucf.edu


The UCF College of Medicine’s Educational Technology department (comedtech@ucf.edu) offers free printing of posters for faculty, staff and students that promote UCF and the college.

The college has created several templates to be used for all poster presentations in accordance with new university-wide brand standards that reflect a modern, cohesive look for all materials that reflect the university. The purpose of these templates is to create professional posters that reflect the UCF brand and provide a consistent look.  Additionally, the template should facilitate your efforts in creating posters.

The templates provide a choice of either a black or yellow banner for your poster (links below) as well as the university-approved font – Gotham.  Since there is a fee associated with installing this font on your computer, please use another font and Ed Tech will change the font for you prior to printing.

Poster templates can be found here:

We don’t want to restrict creativity, so feel free to design the body of your poster any way you feel appropriate, but we will enforce the following standards for the banner

  • Must be either black or yellow background
  • Must include the approved COM logo
  • Title of poster must be either yellow or black


These PowerPoint templates contain multiple slide designs and photo options you may use for your own presentations. We’ve included a 4:3 presentation format and a 16:9 format.

These templates are set up with the font Helvetica. Arial may be used as a substitute font. If you have the font Gotham installed on your computer, please feel free to convert all text to that font. (Note: If you are sharing your final PowerPoint with other users who do not have Gotham, the document fonts will not display correctly.)
