American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry (AADMD)

Academic, Service

The AADMD is a national organization with a mission to improve and enhance knowledge and quality in the medical care of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders and intellectual disabilities (ND/ID).

The UMMS Student Chapter actively promotes this mission through student leadership, advocacy and action. If you have a particular interest in working with patients with disabilities in your future, there is opportunity within this organization to explore that interest further. We are very open to individual members creating and implementing new project ideas. Example projects: volunteering with Special Olympics Healthy Athletes Program, mobile clinics at local special needs schools, mentorship and shadowing opportunities with Michigan Medicine physicians who work with ND/ID patients, monthly webinar meetings with the national AADMD, and funding to attend annual national conferences.
