Aid for Impaired Medical Students

The purpose of the AIMS program is to connect students with the mental health support they need during their medical training. 

AIMS reps are elected class officials who lend peer support to their peers and guide them in the direction of services the University provides if they should need it. AIMS reps work closely with the Student Academic Support Services and Inclusion (SASSI) office to ensure their services are well known and to help identify high risk students in need of immediate support. It is the hopes of both the AIMS program and SASSI that their efforts promote mental health and wellness for medical students in order to prevent crises before they happen.
