Medical Student Senate

Mission Statement

The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Medical Student Senate (MSS) democratically organizes and represents the interests of our diverse student body. We facilitate improvements to school policy and operations as well as exercise our voice in the larger healthcare system to better prepare excellent and conscientious medical professionals. 

Core Values

Our work will be guided and informed by our commitment to fostering a culture of advocacy, equity, diversity, communication, and accountability:

  • Advocacy: Advocate both for a medical school that nurtures socially and critically conscious health professionals through its curriculum, operations, and community engagements, while providing access to resources that support students’ academic success and mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well being.

  • Equity & Diversity: Promote historically conscious and culturally equitable practices within the framework of medical education, including the recruitment and retention of a diverse staff, faculty, and student body; the advancement of a structurally humble medical curriculum where the rights, dignity, and responsibility of the patient are emphasized; and the development of a culturally inclusive learning environment.   

  • Communication & Accountability: Uphold open-channel communication between medical students and other components of the medical school and University, ensure that we operate within the interests and wishes of the student body, and acquaint both students and the administration with novel concerns and projects in order to foster a more concordant and united school community.
