Welcome to the Student Organizations page. Everything you need to know about starting a new organization, holding an event, or requesting funding for your groups will be found below.
A number of student organizations have been formed by M.D. students, and it is anticipated that more organizations will develop as the class size expands. We have 43 currently active student organizations here at COM. M.D. students have also formed the M.D. Student Council. The Office of Student Affairs assists students with all aspects of student council and student organizations.
M.D. Student Council
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.

Forming an Organization
The Student Council, working with the Office of Student Affairs, has completed the process for approving medical student organizations within the College of Medicine.
Any organization seeking affiliation with UCF College of Medicine will be able to submit the New Student Organization Approval Form found here.
With approval from the Student Council and Office of Student Affairs the organization will be granted a status as a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) of the UCF College of Medicine and also grant availability for 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).
Submission of the New Organization Approval Form must be accompanied by a constitution for the organization being formed. New organization proposals that are similar in mission to a current active group will often be denied.
If you have an idea for a similar group that is currently active, please inquire with that group on becoming a subsection of the current organization.
Student Organization Events
While student organizations and extra-curricular activities are always encouraged, organizations must inform the Office of Student Affairs of meetings (both formal and informal) and activities which take place both on and off the campus of the College of Medicine.
