Welcome to the Student Organizations & Student Events 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 may be created as the new healthcare issues, initiatives and student needs develop. UCF College of Medicine M.D. students currently have 56 active student organizations. M.D. Student Council is also considered a student organization.

The Office of Student Affairs assists students with all aspects of student council and student organizations for the M.D. program. For any inquiries or more information beyond what is listed on this page please contact Casey Smith, Assistant Director for Student Services, at casey.smith@ucf.edu.



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.

Looking to join a group? Want to see what the 58 active student organizations are all about? Would you like to contact an organization for a speaking opportunity/event? Check out the Student Organization directory sections below. You’ll find the Executive Board members & group contact information.

For all the information you need to successfully run your organization, including funding, event planning, and marketing, be sure to review the updated Student Organization Guidelines.

If you have any questions about PRFs or vendors for COM’s Student Organizations, please contact Casey Smith.

Any new student organization seeking affiliation with UCF College of Medicine will be able to submit the New Student Organization Approval Form along with a draft of the proposed constitution. (found under the Forming an Organization section below).

COVID-19 updates to event requests:

While COM remains closed to students, we have created a reservation system for you to easily host your online events and meetings via Zoom. This will be the “Virtual Room Request.” We’ll use this system to get all of your virtual events listed on the Student Lounge canvas calendar. Please use this link for all of your requests until we are back at COM – https://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3wJMcGpssb60Opf

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.

Please submit your reservation & support requests at least a week in advance of your event or meeting to ensure room availability and enough scheduling time. If you have any questions on this process please reach out to the Student Services Team.

Step-By-Step for reserving a room or planning a Student 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 Room & Support Reservation Request Survey 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 accordion 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

If you would like to submit a meeting or event flyer for approval and advertisement on the Student Lounge Digital TV Signage please use the SL Digital Signage Submission survey. Please note that the Office of Student Affairs has final approval and publishing authority for all submissions.

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


*PLEASE do not use your own money for purchases you intend to use Activity & Service Fee dollars for! We unfortunately cannot get you reimbursed*

Use this form to submit your PRF 2020-2021 Purchase Request Form – If the form you are using looks different than this one – use this one instead!

For more information, check out the PRFs and Funding section in the Student Organization Guidelines.

Below you will find three examples of filled out & completed PRFs for the three most commonly used vendors/types of ordering: Publix, Amazon, and Papa Johns. Each piece of information you must fill in or provide has been highlighted in these packets. 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) and that all food vendors must accept credit card payments via phone. If ordering from Papa John’s make sure you state that you are a UCF COM Student Organization. This will signal to the store that they need to email you the order slip invoice that you must submit with your PRF packet. This will also signal to Papa John’s to email Accounting the receipt their need for their records.


Student Affairs in collaboration with the UCF COM Marketing and Communications team have worked on a new streamlined process to help get the word out on social media and through other channels about the great events and activities our M.D. Program Student Organizations host at COM and around the community.  Any student organization or individual student with an approved event will be able to submit their request for coverage using this form. Please click here to complete the request for media coverage for your event today. Please note that submission of this form does not automatically guarantee coverage and will be evaluated by need and availability of staff.

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 have been created for all M.D.  Student Organizations. Before you plan your fundraiser, please review these guidelines, and submit your proposed fundraiser details, via the Qualtrics form 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.

Read and review the MD Student Organization Fundraising Guidelines here.

Fundraising Request Form

Supplemental Funding

Additionally the partnership between the Office of Development and the Office of Student Affairs is happy to support a place for M.D. Student Organizations or individuals to help find funding. Are you seeking supplemental funding for your organization or as an individual for an event or project? Does your need not qualify for CRT, Research or other grant funding?  If you answered yes to both questions, we may be able to help. Please use the Fundraising or Supplemental Funding Request Form down below to get started.

Supplemental Funding Request Form


The M.D. Student Council, working with the Office of Student Affairs, has completed the process for approving medical student organizations within the College of Medicine.

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 Casey Smith at casey.smith@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 Casey or 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.)
