About Us


The Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents all Ph.D. and Master's students at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Accordingly, the GSA acts as a liaison between the graduate student body and various University entities to ensure student needs are being fulfilled. The GSA offers many other services that aim to improve graduate student life such as organize social events, provides funding for student groups and travel awards, works with university leaders to advocate student concerns, and acts as a resource hub for information on all aspects of graduate student life.

Our Mission


Our mission is to provide resources to graduate students and serve as the center for student policy. To do this, we work with university leaders, community members, and professional development groups within the university to provide opportunities for intellectual, professional, and social development to SOM graduates. We support and foster the needs of graduate students through offering discussion forums, funding opportunities, social events, and workshops to aid in many aspects of graduate student life including helping you learn how to find a job, network effectively, and communicate with your peers and mentors.
