The Health Professions Student Assembly (HPSA) was established in order to support MD students’ interests, organizations and endeavors. HPSA aims to solidify a form of student government with a foundation based on support, approachability and efficiency. One of the biggest goals of HPSA is to help the more than 50 organizations for MD students currently active at the College of Medicine. The College believes in these organizations and the incredible work that they do, not only for the student body, but also for the Hershey community at large. HPSA is a growing form of student government, open to suggestions, comments and concerns.
