The Association of Families & Friends

Formed in 1991, the Association of Families & Friends (AFF) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the students at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. We support them by improving their school environment, by helping them attain their professional goals, and by assisting them and their families in adjusting to the rigors of academic and clinical life at RWJMS. All families and friends of RWJMS students are considered part of the organization. The AFF also provides parents and families the opportunity to socialize with one another, while working to fulfill important goals. 

Funds are raised through donations and the sale of branded merchandise.

Examples of AFF accomplishments:

  • Provide funds to help defray costs for students to participate in international research and clinical opportunities. Countries traveled to in the past include China, Costa Rico, Ecuador, Ghana, Honduras, India, Peru; South Africa, South Korea, and Taiwan.
  • Provide funds to help defray costs for students to present research papers at medical conferences around the country;
  • Provide funds to support student organizations.
  • Provide funds to support students serving the local communities through the Distinction in Service to the Community Program (DISC).
  • Provide short-term interest-free emergency loans to students.

The Association meets four times a year from 6:30 to 9:00 PM in the Dean’s conference room on the Piscataway campus. Click here for the meeting schedule.
