Message from CMSC President:

Greetings Classmates and Prospective students!

The Chicago Medical Student Council (CMSC) exists as UIC’s student body government to represent medical students and support the numerous student organizations at UIC. Whether you join a medical specialty interest group, find a community with others based on your cultural or religious identity, or shape our curriculum through our various CMSC committees, there is sure to be a place where you can make a significant impact.

I encourage you to get involved in one of our student organizations despite the heavy obligations of medical education. The relationships we develop with each other often become lifelong and more profound to our personal and professional development than we imagined. The lessons we learn in the experiences we build outside of the classroom, as volunteers and as student leaders, are often as important as the pathophysiology and anatomy that we learn inside of them.  The service we provide as medical students can often serve as practice for the impact and service we will provide in our communities as physician leaders.

UIC has had a long pedigree in excellence in student initiatives and involvement, including the founding of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, and it is our distinct honor to be a part of the tradition of this excellence. We hope to help you find your niche, your passion and your voice during your four memorable years here at UIC College of Medicine.

David Lee
CMSC President
