HST Student Governance

HST Joint Council

The HST student association, known as the Joint Council, sponsors activities and creates policies that improve student life. The Joint Council Chairs, one MD student and one PhD student, are elected each year along with other officers and student representatives to various HST committees. HST has a rich tradition of including student voices in policy making as well as in admissions, curriculum design, and alumni relations.
