Medical Student Council

The purpose of the Medical Student Council is to discuss issues of interest to the students of the Indiana University School of Medicine, and to implement constructive courses of action arising from those discussions. The Medical Student Council is also responsible for appointing leadership to committees as well as recommending students to sit on faculty and school committees. The Medical Student Council serves as student leadership for the student body and is given a prominent role in all faculty and school affairs.

Class Officers

Each class elects class officers to represent it in the Medical Student Council. Elections of officers for the third and fourth years are usually held during the preceding year. First- and second-year class elections are generally held within the first few weeks after the beginning of fall classes to allow students time to become acquainted. During the period prior to first-year elections, the Medical Student Council will assist the first-year class.
