Student Activities and Campus Life

We encourage our graduate students to participate in collaborative projects and activities outside of the classroom. These activities enhance training, help prepare you for leadership positions, build community, foster diversity, promote personal growth, and lead to socially responsible human service contributions.

We are one of the few schools that empower students to interact with school leadership on all levels. We encourage students to work actively with the administration, and with each other, to create a better, more inclusive and responsive environment for students through participation in one of our many student-run campus organizations.

We also emphasize student engagement within the larger New York City urban community.  Our involvement in East and Central Harlem provides many opportunities for students to make a difference through practice and research.

Our largest student organization is the Student Council, the governing body of Graduate and Medical students at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

We offer many other opportunities for students to engage in advocacy, research, clinical, and outreach activities, including:

East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership is a free, student-run clinic for uninsured patients in East Harlem that enables students to gain real-world experience while helping those in greatest need.

LGBTQ+ People in Medicine advocates for the needs and concerns of LGBTQ+ students, staff, and patients through various student-led initiatives.

Mentoring in Neuroscience Discovery at Sinai organizes student-run mentoring and events to make neuroscience education more engaging and accessible to children, high school students, and parents in the East Harlem community.
Public Health Interest Group brings together students across all disciplines to create a spotlight on current public health issues.
Sinai Muslim Student Association provides a welcoming space for facilitating faith practices and learning more about Islam through events and activities.
Students for Equal Opportunities in Science promotes diversity in science for members, faculty, and underrepresented science students across New York City.
Trainee Health and Wellness Committee (THAW) aims to improve the collective well-being of PhD, Master’s and Postdoctoral trainees, through identifying gaps and barriers, advocating for change, and implementing programs and resources for all.
Women in MSTP advocates for and supports the success of women in our MD/PhD program through mentorship and educational efforts.
Women in Science and Medicine develops initiatives around the issues that women in science, research, medicine, and health care face in their career development and professional growth.
