Student Alumni Partnership Program

The Student Alumni Partnership Program (SAPP) connects students with alumni for purposes of career exploration.

As SAPP members, alumni have the opportunity to provide students with shadowing experiences, career advice, and hosting (in their home) during residency interviews. Membership also fosters networking with fellow alumni.

Jennifer Wagner and mentor
[When] applying for residencies, I used WMAA’s SAPP program, and feel fortunate to have had access to this remarkable volunteer alumni network, as it greatly enhanced my interview experiences.
