What’s life like at CWRU?
We encourage all students to get involved at Case Western Reserve School of Medicine—and the students in our Doctor of Medicine (MD) University Program are no exception. Explore endless opportunities to make friends, have fun and get involved.
Since 2003, our advising societies—named after notable School of Medicine alumni—have fostered close-knit communities among students. The deans of the societies serve as mentors, helping students navigate the curriculum and providing necessary advice. Medical students will remain members of their assigned societies throughout their time at CWRU (and beyond).
The Committee of Student Representatives has the definitive list of all the “for-medical-students, by medical-students” groups on campus. Whether you want to participate in career-focused groups or do something non-medical, you can see what our student body offers. Don't see your preferred group? Good news! The Committee of Student Representatives (CSR) also helps sponsor and fund new groups.
Case Western Reserve is located in University Circle, which comprises 550 park-like acres in a vibrant urban environment. You’ll find there's plenty to explore here—from beautiful parklands and vibrant art centers, to diverse cultural scenes and endless restaurant options.
At Case Western Reserve, we value diversity and inclusion in all we do. Our Office of Multicultural Affairs encourages, supports and facilitates the success of all students by providing opportunities for diverse interaction and cultural education that occurs outside of the classroom environment.
