Welcome and hello! As the Office of Development & Alumni Affairs, it is our honor to keep you informed of alumni news, upcoming events, ways you can help your alma mater and what is happening at the School of Medicine. 

The Alumni Association works to promote the continued excellence of the School of Medicine and to foster a life-long commitment of support and participation by its alumni and friends.  Our mission is 1) to help advance and influence the interest of our alma mater, 2) to support current students on their journey to becoming physicians and 3) to provide programs and opportunities for alumni to connect with each other and the School of Medicine. The Alumni Association exists to create an environment to encourage all alumni to remain closely connected to their medical school.

We always enjoy hearing from you and encourage you to stay in touch. If I (we) can be of help in anyway, please do not hesitate to stop by, call or email me (us). 

Best wishes,
Linda & Amanda
