As an alum, you are vital to the success of Washington University School of Medicine. However you choose to be involved, contributing your time and knowledge keeps you connected to the School of Medicine and keeps our community vibrant and strong now and in the future.

HOSTS program mentorship

As a much-needed mentor, you can provide invaluable guidance to current MD students — whether they’re just beginning their medical education or in their final year seeking the right residency match. The Helping Our Students to Succeed (HOSTS) program creates links between students and alumni by providing opportunities for students to stay with alumni during residency interviews, find a preceptorship in an alum’s medical practice and more.

Students who are interested in advice, assistance or mentorship, and alumni who would like to volunteer their expertise should contact the Medical Advancement office at 314-935-2940 or

WUMCAA Council
