Candidates for Class Officer positions must submit a written platform for candidacy to the President of the Medical Student Council.  Platforms must be received by the deadline prescribed by the President of the Medical Student Council.  The President of the Medical Student Council shall then make these platforms public, either online or in a public place within the Medical Science Building or Daly Center.  Elections shall be held online so as to allow students from all regional medical education centers to participate.

All members in good standing within the class may cast one vote per office for eligible candidates for Class Officer within their own class year.  Candidates themselves are granted the same privileges to vote in class elections.

Should a class officer be elected to another position with voting privileges within the Medical Student Council, he or she must step down from his or her current position before assuming the rights and responsibilities of the newly elected position.  No officer may hold two voting positions within the Medical Student Council at one time.

Fourth Year Student Council Entity Description

The purpose of the Class Council and its Officers

The Class Officers serve as the direct liaison between the Medical Student Council and the roughly 300 students in their class. All student concerns are brought to the Class Officers which are then brought before the Medical Student Council. The MSC deliberates the actions to be taken to address the concern of the student(s) in the class.

Members of the administration may request meetings with the class officers regarding issues that effect one class more than others. When matters extend across classes, the MSC officers become the representative body that meets with the administration.
