  An Active Student Community
Although the educational program at Albany Medical College is demanding, we recognize the value of time away from the classroom and lab. As a result, our students are far from the stereotypical one-dimensional individuals you might have imagined. Albany Medical College students bring as much enthusiasm to a club meeting or playing field as they do to any academic endeavor.

Clubs and Organizations
With more than 30 campus clubs and organizations, it's likely that there is one that appeals to you. If not, new groups are developed based on student interest. Here are a few examples of the College's varied activities:
  • AIDS Education Program
  • Alternative Medicine Club
  • Ballroom Dancing Club
  • Basketball
  • Crew Club
  • Medical Spanish
  • Outing Club
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • Women in Medicine
The College's on-campus exercise facilities are amply supplied with modern equipment that gets plenty of use by our students. And for a modest membership fee, College students have access to all facilities, including a pool and nautilus equipment, at a nearby YMCA.

Community Service
Many of our student activities reach out to the community. For example: Students have visited area high school classes, educating young people about HIV and AIDS. Other students volunteer as a "big brother" or "big sister" for area children. The Family Practice Club devotes time and resources to providing free medical care at a downtown homeless shelter. And, to help make children more comfortable with a hospital setting, our students annually conduct "Teddy Bear Hospital," a day when kids can bring their stuffed animals for check-ups.
