Medical Student Manors Heading link


Students from all four classes are divided into 9 different “houses” – or manors – and are encouraged to meet at least once each semester to participate in social outings, arts activities, wellness activities, and service learning/community service opportunities.

The goal of Medical Student Manors meetings/events is to increase the collegiality within the four classes and facilitate a connection between the students and their house advisors. Medical Student Manors provide professional and personal guidance from a mix of peers and faculty.


Each house is granted funding for meeting/events each year.
