Aid to Medical Students (ATMS)

A Branch of the University of Virginia Mulholland Society

Who We Are:

The Aid to Medical Students Committee is an avenue through which medical students at UVA SOM can receive the confidential help they require without involving the administration or placing their medical education/degree in jeopardy. The specific goals for the ATMS Committee include:

  • Enhancing awareness of the irreversible personal and professional harm that untreated substance abuse or mental illness can lead to,
  • Promoting effective prevention of medical student impairment by organizing educational materials and programs
  • Providing compassionate assistance to students early to avoid the need for more drastic disciplinary action later

The ATMS Committee organizes events throughout the year, and members are present in each class of the medical school to provide assistance as needed to classmates.
