Council Representatives

UMKC School of Medicine students are represented on major councils responsible for various aspects of the educational program. These are elected positions with several student seats on each Council. The election process begins by self-nomination for either the Council on Curriculum, Evaluation or Selection. This allows students who have identified an interest in a particular aspect of the medical school to become involved in that area. All terms last one year and begin June 1.

Coordinating Committee approves all actions by the other Councils. The student rep for the Coordinating Committee is elected by and among the other Council Reps.
