Student Initiatives

To assure that tomorrow’s healthcare professionals have a solid foundation of knowledge about rare diseases, NORD works with student organizations to facilitate opportunities for students to learn about rare diseases and the patient experience. The purpose of the student organizations is to spread awareness and recognition of rare diseases, to establish professional relationships, and to promote career opportunities within the rare disease space.

NORD Student Club Program

Many students have expressed interest in establishing rare disease clubs on their campuses. The NORD Student Club Program provides guidance in establishing a club and a pathway to affiliate with NORD to promote rare disease education and awareness.

NORD offers a free quarterly newsletter to high school, undergraduate, and graduate level students. The newsletter includes opportunities to get involved, educational resources and advice.
