Biomedical Sciences Student Organization
Welcome! The Biomedical Sciences Student Organization (BSSO) at Eastern Virginia Medical School is open to any student currently participating in biomedical science research at EVMS. This typically includes students in the Biotechnology Master's Program, the Biomedical Sciences Research Master's Program, and the Biomedical Sciences PhD Program.
Graduate Student Research Conference
This is our organization's biggest job. Each year the BSSO hosts its annual Graduate Student Research Conference (GSRC). This conference is free and open to the public and features research from our Masters and PhD students. It is also open to students outside of EVMS as an opportunity to present their own research in a professional, prestigious conference. Please join us!

The BSSO takes part in many community outreach events around EVMS including: NEST, Community Day, Haunted Hallway and more!
It's not all hard work around here. We know how to have fun too! Each month we have our "First Thursdays" outing where we go to a local restaurant and just enjoy each others company and take a break from the lab.
We also have our annual holiday party!
