Aid To Medical Students

The Aid to Medical Students Committee is student-run organization committed to promoting student well-being at the UVA SOM. Our three-fold approach to achieving this goal is as follows:

  • Counseling: We offer confidential peer counseling and referral to appropriate school and community resources for students with mental health, substance abuse, or academic concerns
  • Events: Throughout the year, we organize events that promote all aspects of student wellness through balance and involvement
  • Research: Under the guidance of Dr. John Schorling and Dr. Peggy Plews-Ogan, we are working to better understand medical student resilience

We are excited for this year’s UVA SOM College Cup! Please keep an eye out for our events throughout the year and get involved!
