As graduate students, we are fortunate to have the resources of the Graduate Student Association (GSA) on hand. Part of the GSA’s funding goes to student groups and clubs, which any grad student can join! All registered student groups at JHMI are listed here (click on the logo to be directed to their website).

The Hopkins Marathon Team (HMT)
The Hopkins Marathon Team (HMT) is a university-wide student group dedicated to promoting personal health and fitness through running.
We aim to provide an environment in which both novice and seasoned runners may thrive and achieve personal goals related to long-distance running, whether this means finishing a Half Marathon or Marathon, setting a new personal record, qualifying for the Boston Marathon or simply to keep on running. To accomplish this, HMT organizes weekly long runs in and around Baltimore, provides structured training plans, hosts social events, and encourages experienced runners to give personalized and supportive training advice to novice runners. HMT is open to all members of the Hopkins community and welcomes runners of all levels (should be able to run 3 Mi min). We organize two weekly group runs: Tuesday Social Runs, a low-key running meet-up at the JHMI campus and Saturday Long Runs, with specific mileage goals related to Marathon training.
Please visit our website www.hopkinsmarathon.com for all the info.

The CentriFugues are a non-auditioned, co-ed a cappella group made up of graduate students from the Schools of Medicine, Public Health, and Engineering. Formed nearly two years ago, the group has acquired about twenty members who have performed a huge variety of popular rock, alternative, and pop songs as well as original research-themed songs adding levity to the lives of fellow Hopkins graduate students. The group has performed at a variety of events including new student orientations, happy hours, the BME Variety Show, and the SPH Talent Show. The CentriFugues have also caroled at winter holiday parties in multiple departments around the medical campus and their hard work has culminated in successful spring and winter concerts. The group rehearses every Tuesday at 6pm in the Student Lounge in WBSB. For more information on how to join, contact Ali Nabavizadeh at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our mission is to provide our emerging scientists with the professional skills and knowledge to pursue and succeed in an independent career. We work with graduate and health-professional students, postdoctoral fellows, and early-career faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health. If you are planning your route to an independent career, we can help.
We are happy to welcome you to our online networking site on Facebook.
