Dear parents, family and friends,

The Parents Council at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo hosts social activities that help enhance the student experience. Together, parents can do more to support our medical students through events that enrich their education experience and offer a sense of community. Our goal is to give students a “little something extra.”

The Jacobs School offers amazing opportunities, and with our ongoing support, our students are on the path to success.

At her first State of the School address, Allison Brashear, MD, MBA, UB’s vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School said:

“There’s never been a more exciting time to be at the Jacobs School at UB. People are extraordinarily excited at the opportunity of bringing in new researchers, filling up the labs and working collaboratively with our hospital partners. Our faculty, students and staff are energized by being in this wonderful building. This is a time when we’re going to be able to train the next generation of clinicians and researchers, to do research that really has an impact, and to be a real active, integral part of our community. The future is bright.”

Those who have chosen medicine as their life path and have the privilege of following that path through the Jacobs School, are stronger, more resilient, more compassionate and more tenacious than they ever imagined. The Parents Council is committed to supporting our medical students as they work to achieve their goal of becoming a physician.
