Galens Medical Society is the University of Michigan Medical School's largest and longest running service and social organization.
A med school tradition since 1914, Galens Medical Society members are committed to improving the welfare of local children while making medical school life a little more enjoyable. With the help of its faculty honoraries, Galens holds the annual Tag Days fundraising campaign, organizes community service and social events, sponsors the annual Smoker theater production, and much more.
The Galens Smoker is an annual musical parody of life at the University of Michigan Medical School. Written, directed, produced, and performed by medical students, the Smoker delights, amuses, impresses, and disgusts through its humorous and juvenile perspective on Michigan Medical School medical education, its gunner students, and beloved faculty.
