Chess Club

The purpose of the Chess Club is to foster a wholesome, inclusive, friendly community in which VP&S students can learn and grow their skills in chess. The aim and goal of the Chess Club is to provide a structured organization for students seeking to engage in chess during their time here at VP&S.


Chess has demonstrated its ability to assist individuals in enhancing their critical thinking skills, focus, and managing anxiety. The initiative is to establish a chess community at VP&S with the goal of cultivating these cognitive abilities. Furthermore, chess is a globally recognized and played game, and the establishment of a chess club here offers an avenue for connecting with chess enthusiasts at other medical school campuses worldwide.
