Dear parents, family and friends,

The Parents Council at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo supports the activities of our students. Together, parents can do more to support our medical students through activities and events that enrich their education experience and enhance 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. The months since March 2020 have been full of uncertainty as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Navigating medical school in the midst of so many unknowns and changes has been challenging. But our students have strengthened their resolve to work toward completion of their degree with the flexibility and willingness to do whatever is needed to continue their learning. And, it is abundantly clear that those in the field of medicine, whether in research or direct patient care, have brought us through this pandemic with vaccines and science-informed, evidence-based patient care.

Those who have chosen medicine as their life path and have the privilege of following that path through the Jacobs School, have come through these challenging times stronger, more resilient, more compassionate and more tenacious than they ever imagined.
