Welcome to the Biomedical Graduate Student Association (BGSA) website!

The BGSA is the student government representing all graduate students within the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine. We serve as a platform for communication between students, faculty, and administration, and sponsor monthly academic and social events.

On this website you will find information about our upcoming events, as well as a multitude of resources about the city of Pittsburgh, our University, funding opportunities, and more!

Stay up to date with BGSA happenings by checking out our meeting minutes and quarterly newsletter, which are posted regularly to this site. Better yet, join us at our meetings or events, which you can find listed on the calendar under the Events tab.

We are always seeking new members to provide fresh ideas for professional development and social activities. Becoming an active member of BGSA is also a great way to gain leadership and extracurricular skills outside of research. If you are interested in becoming a new member, please contact me directly to be added to the mailing list. Also, feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding our organization.

I hope to see you at one of our events soon!
