Interview Day Overview

  • Process for Committee Appointments
    • Medical Student Council (MSC) conducts interviews

    • MSC VP-Membership completes the Recommendations Report and emails it to Associate Dean for Medical Student Education (MSE)

    • Associate Dean for MSE responds to MSC VP-Membership approving student appointments for MSC and MSE-Appointed Committees

    • MSC notifies students of appointment to MSC- and MSE-Appointed Committees

    • Associate Dean for MSE sends the list of student names recommended for Dean Appointed Committees to the Executive Associate Dean (EAD) for Faculty Affairs Professional Development and Diversity (FAPDD)

    • EAD for FAPDD sends letter to all committee chairs requesting approval of student appointees

    • Additional interviews will be conducted by the chairs for Admissions, SPC & TLAC before students are notified of appointment

    • EAD for FAPDD sends letter to students informing them of appointment. Students should receive notification by mid-April giving them an opportunity to attend a meeting before the outgoing students finish their term at the end of May.

    • MSC notifies students who did not receive a position on MSC-, MSE-, or Dean-Appointed Committees

  • Student Committee Member Statement of Responsibilities

    If selected to a position, I understand that my primary responsibility is to represent my peers as a member of the Indiana University Medical Student Council, which is the voice of the Indiana University School of Medicine student body. I realize that any evaluation of my representation throughout the year would likely be conducted by the IU Medical Student Council on behalf of the students of Indiana University, and not from the faculty or administration.

    If selected to a position, I understand that the annual Medical Student Council Leadership Day Conference, which usually occurs in October, is part of my responsibilities to attend.

    If selected to a position, I understand that it is a part of my responsibilities to participate as an interviewer in the next annual MSC Interview Day for MSC-appointed, MSE-appointed, and Dean-appointed positions, which occurs each year during the spring semester of my term, unless I am excused by the Medical Student Council Interview Day Coordinators.

    By applying for a committee position, I enter into a pledge to uphold the highest standards of student leadership if selected as a representative of the Indiana University Medical Student Council and understand all statements of responsibility as described in this document.
