Parents Association

As parents of medical students, you help us to grow, inspire us to lead, and motivate us to transform community and world health. Thank you for all that you do. Your support truly makes a difference in the educational experience of UMass Medical School students.

The UMMS Parents Association offers several ways for you to be involved, including:

  • creating events and activities for medical students and parents;
  • providing a forum to share exciting UMMS initiatives;
  • creating additional networks of contacts in the commonwealth to promote the vitality of UMMS;
  • engaging in activities that foster and enhance the Medical School's image in the community; and
  • enhancing educational initiatives through support of the Medical Education Fund.

There are also several opportunities for parents to support UMMS. Learn more.
