Clubs + Organizations

Get Involved

UConn offers an incredible number of student organizations, chapters, and societies on campus through which students can become involved in the university community! Our office encourages students to explore all that the university has to offer and become involved with clubs and experiences that speak to themYour university involvements should be a reflection of your personal passions and areas of focus, whether that be working with elderly populations, teaching and mentoring, or volunteering through clubs focused on healthcare disparities. These experiences are intended to help shape you and your future career goals

Remember that co-curricular involvement does not have to be medically related for it to be valuable! In fact, admission committees want to see volunteering that is non-clinical, because it is a way for you to showcase how you care for and give back to your community. They, ultimately, want to know what matters to you—volunteering is your way to show them.

If you are a member of other on-campus organizations, or are interested in becoming involved, we encourage you to honor those interests and passions. If there is a club you are interested in starting that you don't think exists already, explore the information from Student Activities about how to get started!


As you participate in community and volunteer engagements, you should routinely and consistently reflect on what they are teaching you. All experiences can be tied back the core competencies in some way. When you engage in self reflection and exploration about what your various co-curricular activities mean to you, we welcome you to use the questions about the competencies to guide your thinking and understanding.


As you begin to think about getting involved on campus, we also encourage you to consider how you might show leadership through your various involvements. Though you do not need leadership experience, it is a great way to showcase one of the fifteen core competencies, and it can add a unique angle to your candidacy.

Leadership is valuable because it shows you will be able, as a future provider, to be in charge of a healthcare team and be able to be a leader in a healthcare setting for your fellow colleagues, as well as for your patients. Remember that leadership can come in big and small ways—whether you are the president of a student organization or take charge of one fundraising event—and each experience is meaningful.
