Medical Student Council (Med Council)

The purpose of the Medical Student Council is to promote the interest and welfare of the students of the College of Medicine. There are 24 members on the council, six from each class. These representatives attend monthly meetings of the medical  council, oversee the class budget and coordinate recreational, educational and fundraising events for the class. The medical council also works to improve the welfare of the students, and any concerns about the College of Medicine or suggestions for its future should be brought to the attention of its members. Four of the 24 members are elected to serve on the executive board of the Greater Medical Council. 

Each class elects six students to represent the class, with one class president, a class secretary, a class treasurer, an SLC liaison and two vice presidents. The first year class elects six students at the beginning of the first year for a short term. In January, there is a second election where the first year class will elect the six students who will remain on medical council for the remainder of their time at Downstate.

Medical Council meetings are open to all COM students. Medical council meetings are usually  held on Thursdays at 6:00pm in the Student Center Main Lounge. Please keep an eye out for emails about when the next medical council meeting will be held.
