Student life at the NYMC Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences is dynamic and diverse. Through student organizations and activities, opportunities to get involved with the local community and a supportive and inclusive culture that helps students to do well, feel well and live well, there is always something fun and exciting happening. Additionally, we offer great dining and residential life options, and a range of health and wellness services to enhance your on-campus lifestyle.
We encourage students to be involved in as many activities as possible – social, recreational, religious/spiritual and athletic – as they complement the academic experience and help to reduce stress. At the core of what we offer to students outside the lab and classroom is the Graduate Student Association (GSA). The GSA organizes the annual Graduate Student Research Forum, hosts social functions, advocates for the needs and interests of Graduate School students, and coordinates community service projects that build strong links between the school and its neighbors.
