  • Community Service Committee

    The Community Service Committee organizes service projects and events for our medical students to give back to our community. This includes everything from organizing teams and events for charity fundraisers like St. Baldrick's Day, Relay for Life, and Light the Night, to local projects like running a food drive for Island Harvest, participating in Solidarity Day, or teaching hand-washing and heart-healthy lifestyle tips to local elementary school students.

  • New & Prospective Students Committee

    The New & Prospective Students Committee works closely with the Office of Admissions & Office of Student Affairs to provide support during the transition to medical school. Committee members are involved in recruiting diverse applicants, providing student perspectives during interview days and outreach to make sure all questions are answered. This committee plans Revisit Weekend, Orientation Week, supports interview days and coordinates a peer mentoring program. 


  • Commemoration Committee

    The Commemoration Committee is a committee that honors the whole body donors, lovingly known to medical students as their ‘first patients.’ This committee plans an annual Anatomical Gift Service which takes place at the University Club each spring at the end of the First 100 Weeks. 


  • Emergency Preparedness Committee

    The Emergency Preparedness Committee was founded in 2012 after Hurricane Sandy hit Long Island and the surrounding areas. The committee’s goal is to certify medical students in emergency preparedness and planning early in their medical career to enhance their knowledge and usefulness during disaster relief efforts. 


  • Houses Committee

    The Houses Committee is made up of one chair from each of the four Zucker School of Medicine Houses; Jenner, Walker, Fleming and Blackwell. Houses carry many of the social traditions of the medical school, including House Olympics, House Sorting, peer mentoring and a personality associated with each House. Students are often seen wearing apparel to show their House pride during the year. 


  • Social Committee

    The Social Committee runs school-wide social events during the year, including an annual Welcome Party, Halloween Party in NYC and a spring Formal. The committee is made up of a school-wide social chair and social chairs from the first, second, third and fourth year classes.
