Student Societies

Students are supported academically and emotionally through the Societies program, a core element of our Wellness initiative. Upon enrollment, students are randomly assigned to one of ten Fort Lauderdale Campus societies or one of seven Tampa Bay Regional Campus societies.

These Societies form close-knit communities of approximately 25 students from each class, led by faculty leaders, academic advisers, and peer mentors. Students remain in the same society throughout their four years of medical school, fostering personalized support and a sense of belonging.
