Associated Student Body

Greetings, Fellow Students,

Welcome to the home page of the Associated Student Body of the University of Mississippi Medical Center.  The Associated Student Body (ASB) serves as the governing body of all students on the UMMC campus, and it consists of a diverse group of students from all seven schools:  The John D. Bower School of Population Health, the School of Dentistry, the School of Graduate Studies in the Health Sciences, the School of Health Related Professions, the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, and the School of Pharmacy.

Whether you are a student, an employee, or a member of the faculty here at UMMC or a visitor to the site, I hope that you enjoy your tour of this webpage as you peruse the list of officers, current and upcoming events, recent legislation, or the link for submitting questions, comments, concerns, and/or suggestions to the Associated Student Body.

I am truly honored to serve such an amazing group of students, faculty, and staff here at the only academic medical center in the state.  As members of a community dedicated to education, health care, and research, we have the wonderful privilege of embracing the mission to ensure a healthier Mississippi.  As intimate stakeholders of this institution, we engage in scientific endeavors that have the power to heal patients.  Whether these labors revolve around maintaining safe and clean work spaces, learning about the standards of care and the basic biomedical sciences, training future health professionals, engaging in daily business operations, administering treatment and care to patients, or welcoming guests to our campus, we all collaborate in the noble act of healing.

I appreciate your time in reading this message.  If you have any questions, comments, concerns, and/or suggestions that you would like to submit anonymously to the UMMC Associated Student Body, please select the link below and type your responses.Edgar Meyer
