Many alumni of the UVA School of Medicine are on the front lines of this global pandemic, while others are conducting research, finding solutions to issues like PPE shortages, or volunteering in their communities. We are collecting stories from alumni of the UVA School of Medicine and would love to hear about what you’re doing. See our Spring 2020 issue of Virginia Medicine for our special Doctor Hoo feature which includes some of these stories. You can contribute your story here.

The health and safety of our alumni community is our highest priority, and the UVA Medical Alumni Association continues to closely monitor health and safety updates and recommendations issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as guidelines from the University of Virginia, state and local health organizations.
On March 11, University of Virginia President Jim Ryan announced updated operational and academic changes in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), including moving classes online and restricting events on Grounds with more than 100 people.
In light of these changes and the emerging impact COVID-19 is having nationwide, we have made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone many of our upcoming spring events. These include:
- Match Day Celebration
- Medical School Reunion Weekend (find updates here)
- Black Medical Alumni Weekend
Please refer to our Events calendar for updates on these and other planned events.
We will continue to post updates as more information is available.
We realize that, as medical professionals, many of you are on the front lines of this pandemic, and we salute your dedication to the patients you serve. Today, as always, you are the epitome of President Ryan’s charge to be both “great and good.”
