Tri-School Student Groups

Biomedical Scholars Association

Biomedical Scholars Association (BSA) at the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health is a tri-school organization dedicated to providing a support system for every scholar who considers him or herself a minority within the Hopkins community, promoting the academic and professional success of said scholars, enhancing minority scholar recruitment to and retention within the Hopkins community, providing a network for career development and advancement within the scientific community, and serving our immediate community through volunteerism. We are currently serving the community through science mentoring at Dunbar High School and we volunteer regularly at Moveable Feast.

Gertrude Stein Society

The Gertrude Stein Society (GSS) is an organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied members of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, including the Schools of Nursing, Public Health and Medicine. Gertrude Stein, the well known lesbian writer and intellectual, was a medical student at Johns Hopkins near the turn of the century, and the GSS seeks to maintain her legacy of active lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer presence and involvement in the affairs of JHMI today. We are dedicated to maintaining and developing an even more accepting environment for diversity at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.
