Frequently Asked Questions

How do I donate to a student organization?

Please note that donations to student groups cannot, at present, be deducted from taxes as HMS/HSDM student groups are not registered tax-exempt organizations. Check donations must be made out to HMS Student Council. In the notes section donors MUST indicate the name of the specific student group they are making the donation to. All donation checks should be mailed to: HMS Student Council
Vanderbilt Hall 352
107 Avenue Louis Pasteur
Boston, MA 02115

How can I create a new student group?

Complete a New Student Group Application found in the "Forms" tab at the top menu of this website. In order to submit your application, you will need the following: 1) Basic student group info (name, leadership contact info, etc.)
2) Faculty advisor (if applicable)
3) Hypothetical quarterly budget
4) Have 50 signatures from current HMS/HSDM students either interested in joining or support the mission of the group. Each application is then reviewed by the general body of the HMS/HSDM Student Council at our monthly meetings. Groups that failed to submit a completed application or do not have a mission that is unique among the currently registered student groups will not be accepted.

If you have any questions about the process, feel free to send an email to student_council@hms.harvard.edu

I'm HMS Faculty/Staff, how do I get in contact with a specific student group?

In the top menu of this website, under the "Student Group Resources" tab there is a link to the "Student Group Portal Login." If you make an account with your HMS email, student council should confirm your account within the next few days. Once you are able to login, there is a tab inside the portal called "HMS/HSDM Student Group Roster" with every registered student group and their leadership's contact information. If you have any questions, feel free to email student_council@hms.harvard.edu
