Today is Thursday, Aug. 13, 2020



The Health Sciences Graduate Student Association (HSGA) is a student organization at the University of Cincinnati which serves Graduate students in the Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy. Through HSGA's affiliation with the UC Graduate Student Governance Association (GSGA), members may apply for GSGA travel grants.

HSGA activities and services are free to all graduate students, and all students are encouraged to get involved. Meetings are held from 5 to 6pm on approximately the last Wednesday of every month during the academic year. See the Google calendar below for exact dates. At least one representative from each program must be present at these meetings; however we encourage all students to attend and enjoy free food and drinks.

The HSGA was chosen as the the Graduate Student Association of the Year for 2015-2016! Congratulations to the officers and volunteers for all of their hard work in the past year!

Stay Connected With Us!

The HSGA hosts a number of events every year from happy hours to Reds games to charity walks to alternative careers seminars. We're also a source of important information such as fellowship and travel award deadlines. All of this is on our website, but you can stay informed by reading our email listserv, checking out our Google Calendar, or following us on Facebook. The MED-OHSGS Listserv is an email distribution list for use by health sciences graduate students. It is used for announcements about meetings, events, and general information. This is not your program coordinator's listserv! On average you might receive 3-5 emails per month. The list is used for important announcements, not discussion. All subject headers contain the string "MED-OHSGS" for easy email filtering. How to join in the mailing list? -> Be in the UC school network and Click [Join in] (make sure you're using school's internet connection! If you're home, use VPN to connect to school network.). How to get off the mailing list? To remove yourself from our listserv, send an email from the subscribed address to In the subject and body write "Unsubscribe MED_OHSGS".
