Polity consists of a General Delegation and an Executive Board elected by the student body. The Executive Board oversees and directs the business of Polity and is made up of a President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary. The General Delegation consists of five Representatives from each
of the four medical school classes.
Polity serves to represent the students of University at Buffalo School of Medicine, by discussing the concerns and experiences of students, and aims to address any issues that may arise in the medical school experience. Polity representatives frequently meet with members of faculty, and module coordinators and discuss ways in which the module could be improved, this occurs both before, during and after a module to ensure that both current and future students benefit.
Students have the option to attend Polity monthly meetings, which usually take place on the 3rd Tuesday of each month in the Lippshutz Conference Room (2nd Floor BEB) at 7:00 PM. These meetings are open to all students. Please visit our Calendar and Events page to see the time of our next meeting.
