Graduate Student Association
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences provides a democratic form of self-government by and for the graduate students at the Medical College of Wisconsin. It provides a mechanism for voicing collective graduate student opinions to the faculty and administration while aiding in the dissemination of information to graduate students. These mechanisms along with other organizational planning help GSA promote and encourage fellowship among students enrolled in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
