Student Groups

Welcome to Miller’s Student Organizations of 2020 page! We have 80+ amazing student orgs — take a browse through what they have to offer! All interest groups are organized under the following Wellness Domains: Academic & Professional Development, Service & Community, Interpersonal, Mind, and Body. (We recognize that many, if not all, of our student orgs fall under multiple Wellness Domains, and we encourage active programming that accomplishes this. But, just for the intents and purposes of making things more organized and easier to browse, we have categorized each group under their corresponding predominant Domain.) Please use the drop-down menu under Student Groups for more information on each group.

Academic & Professional Development Domain

Medical school presents extreme academic challenges which can cause significant stress. The prospect of selecting and preparing for a specialty and career path can similarly be a heavy burden for students. This domain focuses on helping students be healthy by equipping them to succeed in these areas and includes examining services such as mentoring and learning support structures.
