About Us

What Is The Thomas Jefferson Medical Reserve Corps?

The Thomas Jefferson Medical Reserve Corps (TJMRC) is a force of dedicated volunteers who augment and support routine and emergency public health operations in Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson counties and the City of Charlottesville. We are composed of teams of medical and public health professionals who, along with interested community members and students, volunteer their skills, expertise and time to ensure a professional, coordinated, and effective response through credentialing, training, exercises, and participation in real-time public health initiatives. We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds and skill sets who are interested in public health and in protecting their communities during public health emergencies. We partner with area volunteer agencies, programs, hospitals, local governments, and emergency services to ensure that our volunteers complement, rather than replace, existing response efforts.

History of the Thomas Jefferson Medical Reserve Corps:

The Thomas Jefferson Medical Reserve Corps (TJMRC) was established by the University of Virginia School of Medicine in 2003. As the first student-run MRC in the country, the UVAMRC was a model in student-faculty partnership and outreach. In late 2009, the TJMRC was expanded and its housing and management was moved to the Virginia Department of Health’s Thomas Jefferson Health District. The UVA medical, public health, nursing, and pharmacy student operations continue as chapters of the organization.
