Welcome to the Whitehead Medical Society

2013 WMS Officers Retreat

We would like to welcome everyone to the start of a new academic year! This is an exciting time of the year as the new MS1s start their medical education, MS2s build upon their basic science knowledge with medicine, MS3s navigate the clinical setting, MS4s start their preparations for residency, and leave-of-absence students take advantage of the wonderful adjunct opportunities to traditional medical education. We are very passionate about being members of such an exemplary student body. We love UNC School of Medicine because of the diverse student interests, the commitment of students to local and global service, the activity of our student organizations, and the dedication of our faculty and administration to serving as professional role models and advocates for our medical education.

The Whitehead Medical Society is the student government of UNC School of Medicine, which has been in existence since the 1950s. We serve the social, educational and personal interests of UNC SOM medical students.

On our website, we strive to introduce you to our current WMS Officers, describe the roles and responsibilities of our officers,  and present upcoming WMS events. The Whitehead Medical Society is large, consisting of about forty student officers! We strongly believe that there are positions on the WMS that fit the personalities and interest of our diverse medical student body. Our interests as an organization includes improving medical education, creating and ensuring a pleasant learning environment, planning events to celebrate our accomplishments, and many others! Some important items that you can find out our website include: our constitution, our newsletter - “The Stethoscope”, and our monthly meeting minutes.

Our goal is to serve you and to make sure that your experience at UNC SOM is one that you will reflect on fondly for years to come. Please feel free to email us or your other Whitehead Medical Society Officers. The information on how to contact us can be found below. Also, our meeting minutes are always available on our Whitehead Medical Society website.

Thank you for browsing our website.  Let us know how we can serve you!
