Student Groups

Participating in student groups can be an excellent way to build community on campus, to engage in leadership and collaborative activities, and to develop knowledge, experience, and qualities that can make your time at Brown fulfilling and your preparation for your chosen profession more substantive. The Health Professions Competencies can help you reflect on the type of activities you may want to engage in. 

The Student Activities Office oversees and maintains a list of officially recognized Brown student organizations. Below are some of the student organizations with a health and medicine focus. 

If you are a leader of a pre-health student group and you would like the information for your group listed or updated, please email [email protected].
