Coronavirus Response and Resources
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.
Also, beginning March 17, staff at the UVA Medical Alumni Association and Medical School Foundation are working remotely until further notice. You may still reach staff directly via email or contact us here.
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.”
