GRADUATE BIOMEDICAL STUDENT ASSOCIATION
All students enrolled in degree programs, i.e. matriculated, at RowanGSBS are considered members in the Graduate Biomedical Student Association. The group's objectives are to cultivate interest in the biomedical sciences and to encourage mutual assistance, social involvement, and other activities vital to a wholesome environment for graduate studies.
The Graduate Biomedical Student Association (GBSA) includes all matriculated students and provides them with a forum to discuss issues relating to student affairs and graduate student education. The GBSA proper (mostly doctoral students) organizes trips to local scientific meetings, invites guest lecturers, and provides new doctoral students with mentors to help them adjust to life as a graduate student. In addition, the GBSA sponsors social events including bowling nights and trips to local amusement parks and sporting events to unite the doctoral student community.
The GBSA also has 4 affiliate groups, which are comprised of masters and certificate students who typically have different career goals than the research-minded doctoral students. These groups are the Colleges Against Cancer (CAC), the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC), the Minority Association of Pre-Medical Students (MAPS), and the Prospective Physicians Association (PPA). Most students are members of multiple groups.
