Student Clubs

At Einstein, there are myriad clubs and interest groups that reflect the professional, educational and social endeavors of the Einstein student body. These clubs and groups offer opportunities to get involved in Einstein’s local Bronx community, take part in the local, regional and national activities of professional organizations, gain insights into specific medical disciplines, engage with fellow students and other members of the Einstein community around like interests and simply to have fun. What’s more, if you have an idea for a club or interest group that you think will be of interest to other students, we encourage you to contact student-activities@einstein.yu.edu. The office of student activities can help you get started in organizing your club or group.

Steps for starting a new club:

Step 1:
If you are interested in starting a new club, complete the new club proposal form and wait for approval from the Student Governing Board.
 
Step 2:
Once you have been approved, you will receive a preliminary budget of $100 on a clincard, which you can pick up from the Office of Student Activities in Belfer 115.
 

If you have any further questions, please contact Jessica Lucas, Marketing Communications Coordinator at jessica.lucas@einstein.yu.edu or call 718.430.2101.

Adolescent Medicine Interest Group

Adolescent Medicine is a dynamic field that provides windows into many fields of medicine at a critical juncture in patients' lives. Although Einstein has a Pediatric Interest Group and an Internal Medicine Interest Group, we feel that the school would benefit greatly from events and opportunities related to this unique field of medicine. We would seek to bring in adolescent medicine specialists to speak about their field and pressing issues regarding adolescent health in today's world. In addition, we would like to provide shadowing options for students to get first hand experience with the field.
