Good Morning!

Congrats on being admitted to UofL School of Medicine! 

My name is Tony Simms.  I serve as the Director of Student Life & Student Wellness at UofL’s School of Medicine.  Over the next few months, you will receive quite a bit of information from me regarding White Coat Ceremony, Orientation, and things to plan for as you begin medical school.  If you have questions at all please feel free to contact me by phone, email, or text.


This first email is to let you know that there is a Facebook group for the ULSOM Class of 2022.  The direct link is .  As social media becomes more popular in terms of communicating with others, many classes have created Facebook pages.  During the academic years, this will serve as a great resource as your peers share links, resources, and advice to help you succeed through medical school.   My caveat: please remember that what you post online is public information.  As a medical student, you are creating your "reputation" and we expect you to present yourself in a professional manner.

Another great resource for you is the UofL School of Medicine Medical Student Affairs Facebook page.  We use this for all announcement, upcoming events, posting images and videos, etc.  That direct link is .  Follow us on Facebook!  We also have a Twitter account - @ULSOMmedstuaf.  Follow us on Twitter too!

Again, congrats on being admitted!  If you have any immediate questions from me, please do not hesitate to ask.  Please expect another email from me tomorrow regarding living options for your first year.


Have a good Thursday!
